Trampolining Competitions

Children of all ages and abilities are invited to enter our regular fun and friendly recreational trampoline competitions which take place three times a year in March, July and November. For future competition dates, please see our Club Calendar page.

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.

Information about forthcoming competitions will appear here six to eight weeks prior to the next event.

Our next trampoline competition is on Sunday 11th November 2018.

It will be held in the Sports Hall at Moor House school, Oxted from approximately 2pm to 6pm.

Start times and running order will be confirmed via email one week before the event and the live scores button below will be activated shortly before the event.

The deadline for entries is Friday 2nd November or when we receive 60 entrants, whichever is sooner. We cannot accept late entries. Payments are non-refundable.

Please scroll down for full venue address and more information.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Individual entry grades range from level I (recommended for those on grades 6-8 of the SDF or Springfit proficiency awards) to level D (hardest).

Two routines will be performed and the scores added together to provide the final score.
Grades I and H are “set, repeat” format, where the same compulsory routine is repeated.
Grades G to D have a choice of either Set 1 or Set 2 compulsory routine, followed by a 10-contact 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. If a different routine is chosen, the tariff (difficulty score) must be at least equal to the set routine (see below for tariff information).

In grades G to D, the tariff will be added to the two routine scores.

All voluntary routines must be provided in writing, along with tariff score, to the judges before the start of the competition.

A synchronised section is also available where a 10 contact routine is performed with a partner who must be eligible to compete at the same level. If there is a difference in level between two performers wishing to do a synchro routine, the higher grade must be chosen.

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.

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

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