About Competitive Trampoline:

Whether you jump in your back yard or take lessons, if you like doing trampoline and want to take it to the next level, then competitive trampoline is for you.

No experience is necessary. Our talented coaching staff will teach you everything you need to know. Competitive trampoline is very different than our recreational classes as it involves a longer warm up, focuses on form, technique, and skills, as well as some body strengthening and stretching which is necessary to progress and stay healthy. 

Check out this short video from Rogers TV which features our competitive team training (the Elite Class) with focus on athlete Gabriel Carvalho, National Canadian Champion, and Head Coach, Chris Martin.  Link to video.

Tryouts: 

Competitive tryouts are required before becoming a member of our team. There are no set dates and you can make appointments with our Head Coach, Chris, at any time during the year. Tryouts take around 10 minutes and are more of an assessment and an opportunity to meet with the athlete and parents. If you are currently on the team, you do not have to try-out again.

Levels:

There are 3 categories of competitive trampoline:

  1. Interclub– This introductory category has 4 levels. A, B, C, & D. Interclub is structured around competing at any trampoline or gymnastics club that decides to host their own competitions. These competitions are called Invitational Meets, and are a great opportunity to compete for fun and experience. Invitationals are mostly held around the GTA.
  2. Provincial – This category is the official Ontario Provincial competitive stream. There are 4 Provincial levels. 1, 2, 3, and 4 with 1 being the lowest and 4 being the highest. Athletes compete at 3 Ontario Cup qualifier competitions and qualify for the Ontario Provincial Championships at the end of the season. There is also an opportunity to qualify for the Eastern Canadian Championships. Provincial athletes can also compete at any Interclub competitions that offer Provincial levels.
  3. National – This category is for the elite trampolinist. National athletes compete all over Canada and the world. There are 4 National levels: Novice (L5), Espoir (L6), Junior (17-), and Senior (18+).
