K TRI X3: Intermediate Trampoline (PreTeam)

Instructor(s): Ally Vercruyssen

Level: 2hr: Intermediate, Advanced Classes

ONLY PRETEAM STUDENTS MAY MAKEUP IN THIS CLASS AND ONLY WHILE CLASS ENROLLMENT IS BELOW 8!

This class emphasizes trampoline, double mini-trampoline, tumble trampoline, and both acrobatic and power tumbling with accelerated training that leads to entry onto Hawaii Academy's Trampoline and Ninja Fitness Teams.

PreTeam students must be enrolled in at least two intermediate (2-hr) classes per week.

The objective of pre-team training is for its students to eventually be invited to try/audition a single team practice, be invited for a month of training with one of HA's teams, and formal advancement to become a permanent member of an HA team. [Team training involves a minimum to two three-hour workouts per week.]

Intermediate Trampoline Classes emphasize safety, control, and form in learning individual maneuvers and then putting them together in swingtime 10-skill routines. All students must be able to ‘perform on demand’ a trampoline routine! (This means that students in these classes may register for any of our local competitions and are ready to perform.) After jumps and drops students learn routines progressing in difficulty from levels 1-10 as published in the current USA Gymnastics Trampoline Code of Points. This training sequence adds continuity to our lesson plans across locations, provides a means of comparing student progress with all USAG trampoline clubs throughout the US, and defines the order of skill mastery so that students are developing safely according to a standard advanced by the Federation of International Gymnastics, the United States Olympic Committee, and the USOC National Governing Body—USAG. Team training uses the same curricula (USAG Rules and Policies) but at an accelerated rate of learning.

Intermediate Trampoline Class students are REQUIRED TO BE ABLE TO PERFORM FRONT AND BACK FLIPS plus all prerequisite/fundamental jumps, drops, turns, and other progressions (the only exceptions made are for those who show great promise and should get their flips within two weeks).

TRIALS are only for those serious about this type of training and parents/clients must decide to enroll immediately after the trial. Enrollments are limited so waiting more than a day might mean preferred classes are no longer available.

MAKEUPS in Intermediate Trampoline Classes are only for those enrolled in Intermediate Trampoline Classes (NOT for students doing makeups for Intermediate Tumbling, Mixed Gymnastics, or Ninja Classes).
