Children of all ages and abilities are invited to enter our regular fun and friendly recreational trampoline competitions.

We recommend that those on Grade 6 or above of the Springfit Syllabus or Winstrada Sports Development Foundation scheme will have the minimum skills requirement (front landing) to take part.

The CRITERIA for all our trampoline competition levels is available to download and print.

Entry grades range from level I (recommended for those on grades 6-8 of the SDF proficiency awards) to level D (hardest).
Grades I ad H are “set, repeat” format, where the same routine is repeated.
Grades G and above have a choice of either Set 1 or Set 2 routine, followed by a voluntary routine that can be created by the performer in conjunction with their coach. The Voluntary routine can be a repeat of the set routine, if desired.

Doing a voluntary routine? CLICK HERE to download our guide to creating a voluntary routine and information on tariffing.

Want to know what grade to compete at?

Most importantly, speak to your coach about which level they believe you should enter at. You can choose which level you would like to enter at and should practice that routine in classes before entering.

If you win a Gold medal at your level (excluding level D) and there are more than three in the category, you MUST move up to the next level when you compete next time.

Where many people enter for one particular level it will be further split into suitable age categories.

Results and scores can be viewed and downloaded from our competition results page HERE.

If we receive four or more entries from adults, we will make an adults section.

Adult and Synchro sections will be marked on form and synchronisation only (not difficulty).

In categories with less than 5 competitors, there will be fewer podium placings for fairness
and a minimum score of 14.0 must be achieved to earn a winners medal.

Judges score deductions as follows:
Faults:                                       0.1 to 0.5

Extra bounces or moves:  0.1 for Level I, 0.2 for Level H. Level G and above: FIG rules.

All routines are ten moves long and competitors are allowed an “out-bounce” at the end without further deduction, to bring the final landing under control.
