Trampolining is a competitive Olympic sport in which trampolinists perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline. These can include simple jumps in the pike, tuck or straddle position to more complex combinations of forward or backward somersaults and twists.
There are four related competitive rebound sports, individual trampoline, synchronised trampoline, double mini trampoline, and tumbling.
Our classes assist children’s development whilst being progressive. The classes are broken into four sections; Amimalz, Klub Kidz, Teens and Adults, and squad class.
ANIMALZ is a basic introduction to trampoline for 5+ year olds. The program helps develop strength, flexibility, co-ordination, balance and posture.
KLUB KIDZ is our school aged groups, broken into Navy, White and Silver (Our club colours!). It is agility/age based, non competitive, progressive and systematic program for school aged beginners and our ‘ANIMALZ’ graduates.
TEENS 13+ is for anyone in their teens or older. This program allows individuals to develop at their own speed, but allows students to develop harder skills.
Our Squads are invitational and allow students to represent Ipswich PCYC, and Queensland, and compete at National Championships.
Trampoline is good fun, great for coordination and a lot of discipline is involved. In the classes we practice levels and different skills and all have a lot of fun.
Trampoline Special Needs Classes
PCYC Ipswich Trampoline Special Needs program provides a safe and fun environment for any age with physical or intellectual disabilities who wish to exercise and have fun. Classes are run when the gym is a bit quieter so there is less chance of any distraction or the feeling of being overwhelmed.
Trampolines can regulate and advance special-needs children's sensory skills. Children with Autism or Asperger's syndrome frequently feel overwhelmed by stimuli, leading to added stress and undesirable behaviours. Trampolines are also fantastic for increasing sensory awareness and improving motor skills. Jumping encourages muscle development, strengthens bones, reinforces joints and improves balance.
The classes are specifically programmed to accommodate the many different challenges of our special needs population. Activities focus on improving communication skills and developing friendships. The focus on movement will help with coordination, promote muscle tone, and a great sense of fun and well being.
Call for more information as to how we can help you with your special needs child or students.
*In accordance with our governing body Gymnastics Australia, athletes with Downs Syndrome must have prior screen by a qualified medical practitioner before taking part in any trampoline activity.
