Trampolining is the UK’s latest craze with Trampoline parks springing up all over the country. With roughly 80% of bouncers under the age of 18, the question is…

We have put together 5 key benefits and great reasons as to why you should be teaching trampolining in your school. Hover over the boxes to see all of the benefits trampolining provides.

BENEFIT 1

FUN & ENGAGING

If students are choosing trampoline parks in their spare time, then bringing the fun inside school can only make physical education even more exciting & engaging, and may even help convert your less confident students into avid gymnasts.

BENEFIT 2

PERFECT EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITY

Trampolining is an excellent extra-curricular activity and its increased popularity outside of school will be very likely to increase the number of students partaking in after school sports activities.

BENEFIT 3

REDUCES FATIGUE & INCREASES ENERGY LEVELS

Rebound exercise automatically increases the mitochondrial count in each of the body’s cells due to the extra demand for energy by the cells in the body.

This will not only reduce fatigue and increase students’ energy levels but also their body’s capacity for using that energy. This means prolonged energy levels throughout the day and essentially concentration levels too.

BENEFIT 4

COMPETITIVE BOUNCING

If students are confidently bouncing in their spare time during their younger years, this growing trend will only mean stronger skills coming into key stage 3 & 4. This could not only increase your students’ GCSE results but increase the number of students taking Physical Education at GCSE level. In addition to your personal teaching results, the number of students going on to competitive and professional trampolining could also rise.

BENEFIT 5

BENEFITS TO HEALTH, FITNESS & WELLBEING

Trampolining is one of the best low impact, fat-busting, whole body sports that will help to facilitate the body’s natural detoxification mechanism. Rebounding causes a shift in gravity meaning huge benefits to the lymphatic system, which is a vital part of our immune system. Encouraging children to partake in this exercise not only has its own health benefits but will enable you to delve into the theory of GCSE PE specifications.
