The player gets points based on the level of difficulty of skills and performance. In the case of other related types of trampoline such as synchronized trampoline, tumbling, and double mini trampoline, the playing procedure varies. While the basic rules are very similar in all types, they differ from each other in setups and play strategies.
In all types, players must perform ten different sets of skills recognized and creative such as horse jumps, somersaults or twists. Players are given scores based on style as well as control over execution of tricks. These different types are as follows -
In the case of a synchronized trampoline, two players jsimultaneously on two adjacent trampolines. The routine consists of the same set of ten skills that both players must perform at the same time. The score is given to each athlete separately by a pair of judges for their ability to perform the skills.
Additional judges are there to provide the score for synchronization between the two players. In the event that players perform in a very synchronized manner, including jumping at the same height at the same time, few points are deducted for synchronization. Here too if the degree of difficulty of the routine plays a vital role in the scoring process similar to the individual trampoline.
The double mini-trampoline is smaller than that of the regular trampoline court. Here the player runs and jumps to the sloping end, then jumps to the flat part of the trampoline bef dismantling the ore on a mat. The players run didifferent skill sets while jumping or landing on the mat.
Here the competition consists of two types of passes. The first type of pass is called fitter pass where the player performs a skill after a jump from the sloping end to the plateau and the second skill down the plateau to the mat.
The second type of pass is called a parter pass where players first perform a straight jump at the end of the slope and upon landing on the plateau they perform one skill and perform the second skill again when descending on the mat. by the players are the same as the skill sets performed by the players in the individual trampoline. The main difference between the individual trampoline and the double minitrampoline is that the double mini trampoline includes a lot of movement along the trampoline.
Tumbling is also known as power tumbling where players perform routines consisting of eight different skill sets on the floor without any trampoline. It is performed on a 25 meter long spring track with a width of 2 meters which is a fiberglass rod floor under two layers of foam mat. The floor includes a 10 meter run at the front and a mat at the end of the track for disassembly.
In tumbling competitions, players make two passes. Each of them has eight skills. Usually starting with a barani or rudy, skills include somersaults and whips before hitting the rugs. Dismantling techniques often include double or triple backstroke somersaults.
The tumbling score is also very similar to that of the Individual trampoline with five judges for skill execution and one for degree of difficulty. Previous page Print Next page
