At Extreme Trampoline we pride ourselves on having the best competitive trampolinists in the country. If you would like to be invited in to the Competitive Programme you must register for a trial with one of the highly trained and experienced competitive coaches.
All competitive athletes are expected to commit to attending trampoline lessons three or more times per week, as well as entering competitions and therefore purchasing a club uniform.
Our competitive squads are comprised of the following squads:
Talent : Novice : Regional : National : Junior : Junior Elite : Senior. Each of these squads have different expectations in relation to hours of training, strength, conditioning and flexibility etc.
If you would like to be assessed to be part of one of our competitive squads please contact us to book a trial or for more information.
Internationally Competitive Athletes
We pride ourselves on producing internationally competitive athletes - a few of whom are aiming at representing New Zealand at the Olympic Games in 2016, 2020 and beyond. This is not an easy goal to have and not one which we take lightly. The athletes who have chosen this pathway train 12-15 hours per week on the trampoline, plus outside fitness, strength and conditioning programmes.
As taken from the Gymnastic Canada Long Term Athlete Development Programme: Scientific research has concluded that it takes a minimum of ten years, 10,000 hours of deliberate training for a talented athlete to reach elite levels. This translates into an average of more than 3 hours of training daily for 10 years. There are no shortcuts; athlete development is a long term process. Short term performance goals must never be allowed to undermine long term athlete development.
