Tumbling and Trampoline TNT

T-N-T Classes for School-Age Boys and Girls

Tumbling and Trampoline, otherwise known as T-N-T is for all children who love to run, bounce, fly, spin, and have lots of fun. But the fun factor can sometimes distract from the serious nature of the activity.

T-N-T is a physically demanding sport that is so much fun that the children often get in more turns and willingly push themselves more than our students taking other classes. Jumping trampoline requires the development of core body strength in order to hit and maintain positions and to withstand the compression that takes place at the bottom of the bounce. Tumbling requires speed, power and strength along with well-developed core strength.

All of the T-N-T events build confidence, concentration, courage, and discipline.

Trampolines and Safety

Trampolines are only as safe as the teachers and facilities make it. Any activity involving height and rotation carries a risk of injury. But the greatest risk when bouncing on a trampoline comes from flying off the tramp and falling an additional 3’-4’ to the ground.

This cannot happen at Buckeye Gymnastics. Buckeye offers a total of 12 trampolines, including our tumble-trampolines, between our three buildings. Ten of those trampolines are in-ground trampolines. This means the bed of the trampoline is even with the ground. There is nothing to fall off of.
The two above ground trampolines are surrounded by netting that also eliminates the possibility of falling off.

Our teaching staff is Safety-Certified, knowledgeable, and experienced. We teach the students step-by-step to make sure they are ready before we move on to the next skill.

 

T-N-T 1

This is the beginning class for tumbling and trampoline. We start at the very beginning with rolls, handstands, and cartwheels on floor developing the strength and core strength the students will need to master even the basic skills. We teach the kids  to bounce in control and how to stop instantly. Once these basics are mastered the students are advanced. No flips at T-N-T 1.

T-N-T 2

At this level the students are ready for more advanced skills including the introduction of front and back flips on trampoline. On floor cartwheels become round-offs and handstands become hop-handstands as handsprings are introduced.

T-N-T 3

This is the advanced level. The students master somersaulting and start tumbling with speed and power.
