UWE Trampoline is a mixed club and is a fun, energetic club with members of all abilities. Whether you are a complete beginner, a long time competitor, or somewhere in between this is the club for you.
People often ask us if you have to already be good in order to join, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Novices are not only welcome they are desired; there is nothing we enjoy more than showing someone firsthand how much fun a trampoline can be. The basics are also a lot easier to pick up than people expect, we have members who have gone from never being on a trampoline before to winning medals and competing in the 3rd most difficult category by the end of their 2nd year.
We have 3 regular training sessions per week on Frenchay campus, coached by a combination of certified students and a professional high performance coach. They will teach you the basics, and help you progress as far as you want to go. If you already know the basics they can help you learn new moves and progress even further.
We partiscipate in a number of competitions throughout the year in which anyone and everyone can compete. Trampoline competitions have 5 difficulty categories so whether you are an Elite, or an absolute Novice you only compete against people with similar abilities doing moves within your skill set.
Do we compete? Yes. Do we win medals? Definitely. Do we know how to have fun? Absolutely!
Trampoline is a very social sport, we hold club socials in Bristol on a regular basis and every competition we attend has a social night attached to it for all the competitors to attend and enjoy together.
New for this year: We are working on putting together a training camp abroad for next summer, a chance to work on your skills while enjoying the sights and nightlife of another country. Possibly in Europe, possibly even in the US. Watch this space for updates.
