Alton Trampoline Club
Club, Gymnastics, trampoline
Alton Trampoline Club was founded on 3rd November 1990.
Members currently train three times a week at Alton Sports Centre, Alton, Hampshire. In February 2006, the club was one of the first to become GymMark accredited, and is currently the only Trampoline Club in Alton to have this accreditation. GymMark accreditation is awarded by British Gymnastics to clubs that it recognises as safe, effective and child friendly, providing a service in the community that children and young people, their parents/carers and others with a passion for Gymnastics can trust.
Alton Trampoline Club currently has approximately 50 members from the ages of 4 to 18. We are a competitive club, but the emphasis is on encouraging rather than pressurising our members to compete. We strongly believe that all members irrespective of ability have something to offer. Members are encouraged to develop at their own pace and to the best of their ability. Not everyone can be a world champion, but everyone can work towards their own personal goals, whether it is fitness, British Gymnastics Award Schemes or local/regional/national competitions. The only thing is compulsory is to have fun!
This flexible and laid-back approach has produced several National Grade Performers and equally importantly, has seen several members qualify as coaches and judges in their own right and go on to pass their knowledge and enthusiasm to the next generation. It is this family atmosphere which gives the club its unique character.
