Trampoline Sports has three apparatus and four disciplines
- Individual Trampoline (TRP)
- Synchronized Trampoline (SYN)
- Double Mini Trampoline (DMT)
- Tumbling (TUM)
Individual Trampoline consists of an individual competitor performing two routines on the trampoline in the qualifying round and one routine in the final round. The qualifying round consists of a first voluntary routine (compulsory elements) and a second voluntary routine (optional elements). The Final consists of one voluntary routine (optional elements). In most competitions, skills are performed from ten contacts with the bed, starting the routine and ending the routine on the feet. Skills range from aerial shapes (tuck, pike and straight) to multiple somersaults with twists. Skills receive difficulty points according to body position, the degrees of rotation and twist executed.
The 2nd and final Voluntary routine also consists of a combination of ten consecutive, but different skills. The competitor selects the skills. This routine is judged on the performance and a degree of difficulty score is added to this total. Competitors will use a combination of single or multiple somersaults with multiple twists, both forward and backwards to make up the combination of ten skills.
Synchronized Trampoline is judged the same as individual trampoline but there are two competitors bouncing on separate trampolines. Competitors aim to perform the same routine at exactly the same time. Competitors are marked on how well they stay synchronized with each other and an execution score is given for the performance by each athlete. The routines that they perform must be identical. If either competitor performs a different skill or even the same skill in a different body position the routine terminates at that skill and they will only receive a score for the part of the routine performed prior to the error.
Double Mini Tramp
The Double-Mini Trampoline is a low, narrow trampoline with a mat divided into two beds by a red penalty zone. Two skills are performed in sequence, either as:
- A mount skill over the ‘penalty zone’ (area between the sloping and flat bed – usually painted red) and a dismount skill or A spotter skill, which is performed on the flat bed (on the spot) and then a dismount skill.
Competitors perform two different passes consisting of two skills in a preliminary round and another two passes for finals. No skills may be repeated in these four passes or no degree of difficulty will count for that skill. A skill is not counted as a repeat if it is done on a different part of the double mini, eg. spotter or mount.
Competitors perform two Voluntary passes of either 5 skills or 8 skills dependant on the division/event they are entering, and perform one pass in Age final or two passes in International final. The passes are performed along a 25 metre sprung/air floor. A tumbling pass demonstrates forward, backward and sideward hands to feet and feet to feet rotational elements. The elements should be presented showing good control, form, execution and maintenance of tempo.
