Trampoline & Tumbling

OVERVIEW

Power tumbling is a competitive individual sport which combines skills of artistic gymnastics with those of the trampoline. The sport is practiced by both men and women and consists of three (3) events: floor, trampoline, and double mini. The athletes compete against other athletes who are at the same skill level, the same gender, and around the same age.


Floor
The floor event at a meet, the athletes are judged on two passes; one pass will demonstrate 5 skills, and another pass will demonstrate up to 8 skills. The skills consist of: back handsprings, layouts, whips and tucks. The athlete is judges on aesthetics as well as difficulty of each pass.

The floor event is performed is 6’ x 84’ slightly elevated tumbling surface, often referred to as a "rod floor". It is made from a series of fiberglass rods. The rods flex and provide additional bounce that an ordinary floor does not. The rods are covered in padding, and the padding is covered in a flooring material suitable for tumbling.

Double-Mini
On the double mini the athlete will have a total of three passes demonstrating two skills each pass. The double mini is a trampoline with two jumping surfaces and is much smaller than a standard trampoline. To perform a pass on a double mini trampoline, athletes typically take a running start, jump onto the first jumping surface, which is angled toward the floor, jump onto the next surface, which is parallel to the floor, and then perform a tumbling skill as they dismount. In competition, athletes usually complete three different double mini passes each demonstrating two different skills. The scores from each pass are added together to get the athlete's final score.

Trampoline
The athlete will have one pass on the trampoline to demonstrate 10 skills. Regulation competitive trampolines are designed to provide a higher, more powerful bounce. Competitive trampoline routines look effortless as the athletes fly high into the air, and perform multiple skills within each bounce.
