SIGS Trampoline & Tumbling Team
Trampolining is a competitive Olympic sport in which gymnasts perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline. These can include simple jumps in the pike, tuck, or straddle position, to more complex combinations of forward or backward somersaults and twists.
The routines are performed on a standard 14 foot by 7 foot regulation sized trampoline with a central marker. Each routine consists of the athlete performing ten different skills starting and finishing on their feet.

What is Double-Mini
A double mini-trampoline is smaller than a regulation competition trampoline. It has a sloped end and a flat bed. The gymnast runs up and jumps onto the sloping end and then jumps onto the flat part before dismounting onto a mat. Skills are performed during the jumps and/or as they dismount.
A double mini-trampoline competition consists of two types of pass. In the one, which is known as a mounter pass, the athlete performs one skill in the jump from the sloping end to the flat bed and a second skill as they dismount from the flat bed to the landing mat. In the second, which is known as a spotter pass, the athlete does a straight jump from the sloping end to the flat bed to gain height, performing one skill while landing back on the flat bed and then a second skill as they dismount. These skills are similar to those performed on a regular trampoline except that there is movement laterally along the trampoline.
