Peak is excited to offer a T&T program! The gymnastics discipline of trampoline and tumbling, often referred to as T&T, includes four events. Trampoline, synchronized trampoline, double mini-trampoline, and power tumbling can be exciting at any level. Bouncing high, learning body control and developing spatial awareness are all adventures of the sport. One of the best parts of the program, is it is a sport that both girls and boys can participate in. Peak offers Pre School, Recreational and Team T&T classes.
Boys and girls of all ages and fitness levels can benefit from participation in a trampoline and tumbling program in many ways. It’s fun and great exercise.
Physical fitness development – Especially in areas of strength, agility, and coordination.
Cognitive skill development – The gross motor development, laterality, and neural activity found in jumping and spinning facilitates learning by creating concrete operations in the developing child.
Once our Recreational athletes have mastered the skills needed to advance from level to level they have the opportunity to compete in the sport they love. The competitive program promotes life skills such as teamwork, responsibility, friendships, sportsmanship and self-confidence.
The four events that the T&T athletes compete in are defined below:
Trampoline– Although even in the early years of trampolining, notable American and international athletes performed many of the difficult skills and combinations of skills that are seen today, modern trampoline competitions are quite different than those of the early developmental years — due in part to advances in equipment design, changes in the rules and governance, and more systematic training of the athletes.
Synchronized Trampoline– Synchronized trampoline demands the same athletic skill as individual trampoline, while adding the element of precision timing. Using two trampolines, two athletes perform identical 10-skill routines at the same time. In this most artistic event in the sport, each performs as a mirror image of the other, doubling the visual beauty of trampoline competition
Double Mini Trampoline– Double mini is a relatively new sport that combines the horizontal run of tumbling with the vertical rebound of trampoline. After a short run, the athlete jumps onto a small two-level trampoline to perform a rebounding trick immediately followed by a dismount element onto a landing mat.
Power Tumbling– Power tumbling is performed on elevated spring runway, known as Rod Floor, that help tumblers propel themselves with speed and height along with strength and skill, while executing a series of acrobatic moves.
