I’M THE ONE WHO FLIES THE HIGHEST…

Trampoline is one of the most exhilarating sports there is. From the very first day, you can experience the thrill of leaping higher than you ever have before. Then, as you build your strength and skill, you can challenge yourself to go higher and higher. The sky really is the limit.

With classes for adults, teens and children as young as eight, getting started couldn’t be easier. First you will learn how to perform single aerial tricks and maintain your rhythm. Then, as your skills and confidence grow, you will build up some incredible big-air stunts. If you want you can even show off your stuff at one of the competitions for your age group. Of course, if you would prefer to bounce just for fun and fitness, that’s great too.
