Trampoline and Tumbling Classes
Trampoline Has Benefits Found Nowhere Else In Sports!
Trampoline is FUN and enhances children's fitness faster than perhaps any other activity. But the benefits go beyond that:
There is no better activity than trampoline to train spatial awareness, a critical skill in all sports. Additionally, spatial awareness is considered one of the "eight intelligences" and has been linked to enhanced cognitive development.
The inherent FUN of trampoline disguises the amount of energy being expended! Unlike so many children's activities, when on trampoline, children eagerly sustain an activity level that leads to genuine fitness, including: cardiovascular health; leg and core strength; calorie burning and weight loss.
At the bottom of every bounce, gravity is 2-5x body weight. This compresses every cell in the body, helping the lymph and other circulatory systems eliminate toxins from the body.
Trampoline also helps the vestibular system; optical tracking and peripheral vision; fear management; concentration and attention to detail; and so much more.
SBGC uses the "QUARTERING METHOD" which breaks down every skill into manageable increments, enhancing safety and making learning easier and more fun.
What to Wear
Girls wear a leotard (with or without shorts or fitted stretchy leggings if cold). Boys wear shorts and a T-shirt, tucked in. Hair should be pulled back for safety, as long hair interferes with rolling, somersaulting and twisting skills. Please, no gum or jewelry.
For their own safety and cleanliness purposes, during our trampoline classes students MUST wear our specially made trampoline socks or trampoline shoes. This is the only footwear that is allowed on our Olympic-quality trampolines. SBGC trampoline socks can be purchased at the gym.
