We are a recreational, fun, trampolining club based in Stoke-on-Trent, currently with many coaches, assistants & young leaders.
Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced bouncer, whether you want to learn trampolining itself or come to learn landing safely & somersaulting in other sports, old or young, able or disabled, you are welcome to come and trampoline with us.
Our coaches have years of experience in disability coaching. Our Head Coach has taken extra courses to be better equipped to understand & work with a range of physical, behavioural, mental, learning & social disabilities & disorders. Depending on the disability & level of support needed, you can join in with the regular weekly sessions or have one-to-one sessions at a time which suits you.

What do we do?
Each trampoliner will receive personalised, one-on-one coaching. From complete beginners to ones who only have experience on a garden trampoline, from ones with serious disabilities to advanced bouncers - our qualified & experienced coaches will take you from whatever ability level you are currently at & progress your skills to rotate, flip, twist, somersault and land safely. If you just want to bounce without learning anything, or be bounced - that's fine too!
We work on the nationally recognised award structure for trampolining, starting with simple basic shapes in the air & body landings, progressing to twisting & linking various landings, moving on to forwards and backwards somersaulting moves. As you progress, you will be able to perform sequences of tricks called routines. Whatever level you are at - there are always more twists, somersaults and combinations which can be added to your skills.
We are a non-competitive club, so you can learn new skills & tricks in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere - without the stress of an upcoming competition or the worry of upcoming grading exams.
Who can bounce?
Children can start from 3 years old & there is no upper age limit, many adults train at our club (so feel free to come & have a bounce too Mums & Dads!). The classes are all mixed age, gender and ability level.
Disabilities are welcome! Our coaches are trained and have experience working with a range of disabilities. Disability bouncers can join the main classes, or have their own separate training times if needed. In the last 16 years Rachel, our Head Coach, has coached severely autistic ones, people with asperger's syndrome, wheelchair users, ones with cerebal palsy, ADHD, dyspraxia, fibromyalgia, hypermobility, speech and understanding problems, a girl with just one hand, behavioural issues, social anxieties, depression, ones with Special Educational Needs and a range of other disabilities. Contact us if you would like to organise a separate session tailored to a specific disability, or want any more information.
Trampolining is a great way to stay active - whilst keeping fit, having fun, developing flexibility, practicing hand-eye co-ordination and learning exciting, interesting new skills and tricks. It fits nicely with other sports such as parkour, free-running, gymnastics, dance, DMT & tumbling. Trampolining is therapeutic, enjoyable & relaxing, especially for ones with disabilities.
How do I get involved?
You can try our club out anytime. Come along for a taster session. If you enjoy it, you're welcome back. If it's not your cup of tea, there's no commitment. Places are limited to 16 participants per class (places will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis, so book soon to avoid disappointment). Booking is at: tumblingtrampoliners.co.uk/book.
