    WAG Does Circus Trampoline class help train Gymnastics?

    I wanted to take a Circus Trampoline class. Do you think this class will help with gymnastics? I always thought doing this class would be considered 'cheating, and creating sloppy technique' in real tumbling (for front flips, backflips, side spins, etc). Reason is ease of use from jumping on...

    WAG Tramp Shoe Question

    As meet season gets a little closer, I have a question about tramp shoes. I competed eons ago and never was a fan of the tramp shoes with the strap across the top, I always had to have the slipper type of shoe. I remember disliking suede bottoms, but I managed because it wasn't the strap. Well...

    Looks like gym will be closed for a while... Thinking of getting a trampoline for my level 9 to practice and for her little sister to play. Any recommendations? They are requesting one that is "bouncy". Thanks!

    For Parents Backyard Trampoline

    My son wants a backyard trampoline. If I decide to do this, what are the best tramps for gymnasts and how much will it cost for both tramp and installation? I dare not ask if there would be a market for this used and how would I find it?

    For Parents Let's talk (again!) about trampoline parks

    DD was just invited to a birthday party at a trampoline park in mid-November.
