D. Robinson was named USTA Illinois Coach of the year. Congratulations to Coach D on a wonderful 2019 season!
The sport of Power Tumbling and Trampoline includes four events: Power Tumbling, Trampoline, Synchronized Trampoline, and Double-Mini Trampoline
Elite’s program offers classes from the Beginner level up to the Advanced level, for children ages 4 on up to high school students
We also offer a competitive team that competes at the regional, state, and national level. The team has a membership with the United States Trampoline & Tumbling Association and Amateur Athletic Union. The team is coached by USTA Safety Certified coaches, who were former Advanced/Elite athletes, and long-time coaching/judging veterans.
Come on over and let us teach you how to roll, bounce, flip and twist!
KinderBounce (4 – K) & Beginner (1st-3rd, 4th & up)
Participants will learn basic tumbling and skills, including positions, drills,
hurdles, rolls, and basic support skills (cartwheels, handstands). They will
also learn proper falling and landing techniques, safe jumping technique, and
fundamental trampoline jumps and skills. Flexibility, strength, and coordination
are also developed for higher level learning. Students may spend 2-3
sessions or more at this level (60 minutes).
Advanced Beginner TnT (1st – 3rd, 4th & up)
Participants will continue to master fundamental skills, as well as skill
variations, including handstand rolls, cartwheel variations, round-offs and
handspring drills. They will continue to practice proper falling, landing, and
jumping techniques, and will have the opportunity to present these skills on
the trampoline. Students may spend 3-5 sessions at this level (75 minutes).
Novice TnT (1st & up)
Participants will have mastered basic fundamental skills and will focus on
building strength, coordination, and flexibility through the use of drills and
progressions to work on true power tumbling skills such as handsprings
and handspring connections. Drills and progressions for somies will also be
taught, as well as trampoline skill combinations. Students are recommended
to attend this class two times/week at this level, as repetition of skills and
body positions is important for learning and progressing (90 minutes).
Participants will have already mastered the back handspring and front
tuck and will begin working more advanced skills, including multiple back
handsprings, back tucks, and beyond. Participants will be trained on proper
power tumbling and trampoline form and technique and will learn basic
passes/routines for the beginning and novice levels of competition in power
tumbling, trampoline, and double-mini trampoline. Participants are expected
to practice twice a week for 90 minutes and should have an interest in a
future with our competitive team.
