Friday  6.00pm – 7.00pm Assessment sessions 7.00pm – 8.00pm  8.00pm – 9.00pm 


Beginners 6+: Hugely popular, this course gives children the chance to move from basic bouncing to front and back landings, with plenty in between as they work through six trampolining awards. Come on Fridays for a free assessment session to see if trampolining suits you.

Improvers 6+: Heading for the big somersault, children aged six and up work through five award stages (levels six to ten) and progress with every session.

Adults 14+: Re-discover the joy of the jump with trampolining sessions for adults and young people (from 14 years). An increasingly popular way to get fit and have fun for all ages.

A course of six sessions during JMHS term time will cost £50. Check availability and book by clicking the link here.
