SPECIAL NEEDS ACTIVITIES

(Please note the extended Downs Syndrome Participant requirements) 

The Airborne Trampoline Club welcomes all participants in its special needs activities. Including those with developmental disabilities, and physical disabilities.

Since 1994, Airborne Trampoline Woodbridge has created programs which cater to every person willing to enjoy the sport of trampolining. Airborne Trampoline’s special needs activities are a great way to improve co-ordination, spacial awareness, and over all well being of all our special needs participants. Many the jumpers participating in special needs activities have noticed improvements in as little as 2 sessions.

 In order to maintain a safe environment for all participants, Gymnastics Ontario and Airborne Trampoline require that all participants follow the guidelines set forth by Gymnastics Ontario & The Ontario Special Olympics.

Although Airborne Trampoline makes every effort to accommodate all those interested in special needs activities, there are some cases in which special documentation, and arrangements must be obtained before participation will be allowed.  In the event that you have a special needs guest, please inquire with Airborne staff as to “assistant to participant” requirements as well as whether or not any special documents must be provided.

 If required, all special needs activities documentation and forms can be found here…

-Notice to all Downs Syndrome participants-

 According to the Ontario Special Olympics, Downs Syndrome participants looking for special needs activities (and in particular, participation in gymnastics and similar activities including trampolining), must be aware that participation by those individuals who have a positive gap greater than, or equal to .5cm in the C1 and C2 vertebrae in the neck, could potentially result in “injury” if they participate in activities that hyper-extend or radically flex the neck or upper spine.

As a result of this recommendation, Gymnastics Ontario requires all participants with Downs Syndrome who are interested in special needs activities (particularly trampolining), who are potentially predisposed to this condition, to be x-rayed in order to determine whether or not this condition is present. Should the gap be greater than .5cm, for the safety of the individual, Gymnastics Ontario prohibits participation by this individual in any gymnastic and/or trampoline activity.
