You’ve probably done a variety of different jumps on a trampoline, but do you know what they’re called? We have compiled a list of different trampoline moves and what they are called so you can be more educated the next time you come visit us!
- Straight Jump – A vertical jump with the body held straight and arms in a straight line above the body at takeoff.
- Tuck Jump – From a straight jump-start, the knees are pulled up to the chest and the hands must at least briefly grasp the legs between the knees and ankle.
- Pike Jump – Also from a straight jump-start, the legs are straight, held together and lifted parallel to the trampoline and the arms and body reach forwards towards the pointed toes.
- Straddle Jump – Similar to the pike jump except that the legs are spread sideways approximately 90° apart and the arms reach forward towards the pointed toes.
- Seat Landing – Land in a seated position with the legs straight. The hands support the body on either side and very slightly behind the posterior, palms down with fingers pointed towards the pointed toes.
- Seat Landing Half Twist– Bounce up to a straight position (without landing) and then perform a half twist and land in the second seat landing facing in the opposite direction.
- Half Twist and Full Twist – While in a straight jump position rotating the body until facing the opposite direction for a half twist or a complete 360° rotation for a full twist.
