Trampoline Recreation

Children learn safe techniques as well as building skills at their own development rate. To be able to bounce safely it is important to develop core body strength, so some conditioning work is done off the trampolines.  Socks are required at all times.  Children have the opportunity to participate at recreation competitions, competing the Badge Level routines

Classes are structured to ensure all the children are rotated through a progression of skills on each of the trampolines and includes warm-up and warm-down times which are carried out on the gym floor and may include a game and/or specific skills. Each child is given one-on-one time throughout the class where they are coached on a skill and given a skill to work on when they rotate off to the other trampoline to practice. Children are also given a rest time between learning and practicing skills. For the DMT children line up and practice a skill on the DMT one after the other, so again the coach gives them individual coaching as they perform the skill.  Gymnasts will be given the opportunity to attend up to 4 competitions during the year to show off what they have been learning in class. You can find our the recreation routines by following the links below:

I have enrolled - what else do I need to know:

  • Children can wear either bike pants or leggings or shorts with a fitted T-shirt or leotard.  Please ensure the clothing is reasonably tight fitting and not baggy. We have an on-site leotard store where leotards can be purchased.

  • For safety reasons clothing should not have buttons, buckles or zips as these can catch on the equipment.

  • For safety reasons all long hair must be tied up using a plain elasticised hair tie or scrunchie.

  • Shoes are not allowed in the gym itself and children are to wear socks to go on the trampolines. 

  • When children arrive they can leave their shoes, bag, etc in the cubby holes under the stair case or on the mezzanine floor area.

  • A Coach will come up to the mezzanine floor to call the class - you should head straight upstairs when you arrive. We ask that parents take note which class your child is enrolled in to ensure that your child goes with the correct coach.

  • If you are late please ask your child to join their group or come into the office for a staff member to take them into the main gym area.
  • Parents are requested not to enter the main gym hall at any time and to contact an office member if access to your child is required.  The mezzanine floor is available for viewing the class your child is enrolled in.
  • Prices listed above are based on a 10 week term and vary according to public holidays and gym closures.

PLEASE NOTE when registering, a child can either be enrolled in a class or placed on a wait list if the class is full:

    • Enrolment in a class - a child is confirmed in a class after an invoice has been sent via email. The invoice sends automatically upon completing the registration process.
    • Placed on a wait list - if an invoice is not received the child IS NOT enrolled on the portal. When on the wait list an orange "wait list" button is highlighted next to the class in the child's registration details. A child is moved from the wait list when a place becomes available and an invoice will be emailed. This confirms the child is enrolled in the class starting immediately.
    • Trial Class - we do not offer trial classes. If you wish to come along and observe a class from our Mezzanine area you are more than welcome to do so. Once you have booked, gymnasts are committed to the term of gymnastics classes.
    • Prompt Payment Discount: If term fees are paid before the due date noted on the invoice, you will be eligible for a 2% prompt payment discount (T&C's apply).
          • Late payment penalty: Late payment will incur a late payment penalty fee. You will not be able to enroll into a class for the next term if there are outstanding fees on your account.
