Why are We DifferentDepartment Leader

PHILOSOPHY

“You’ll believe you can fly.”
Wanna have some reeeeal fun? We believe that Kids First Trampoline and Tumbling classes combine fun with fitness more than any other sports activity!

The built-in enjoyment of trampoline disguises the amount of energy being utilized and genuine fitness benefits like cardiovascular health, leg and core strength, calorie burning and weight loss. And there is no better activity than trampoline to develop a child’s spatial awareness which is a critical element in all sports and enhances cognitive development.

Our TnT recreational classes safely introduce children to the basic concepts of Trampoline and Tumbling. We expand a child's horizon by making every class challenging for all ages and abilities. We create a love for the activity by combining fun with learning. In this way, students progress to the technical stage of instruction at their own natural pace.

When a passion for trampoline activity is matched with pure fun, the merger leads to the great benefits of rebound sports participation.



WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?

Safe + Fun = TnT

  • Trampolining, also known as “rebounding,” can be enjoyed by children of all body types and strength levels.
  • Trampoline is a ‘gentle’ pursuit. The surfaces and equipment used in rebound activity are considerate on children’s bodies as the apparatus more gently absorbs any impact to young, developing joints and muscles.
  • Trampoline is a blast! It’s like a roller coaster without the cart! Caution: the exhilaration of rebounding can be habit forming!
  • All sports have inherent safety issues. We minimize risk through a highly structured and organized program to keep kids exceptionally safe on their path of TnT accomplishment. As a bonus, the natural by- product of our time-tested, structured environment is the development of self-discipline which carries over from the gym to school and home life.
  • Our TnT domain is a state-of-the-art area with features most other Rebound programs can only dream of. Check out these features:

--four full sized, in-ground Olympic Trampolines
--a dedicated runway and landing area for our Double Mini Trampoline event
--a full regulation rod floor tumbling surface
--an in-ground solid foam pit for the safest landing surface
