Resources

My go-to resources and recent discoveries related to trampoline and gymnastics…

Tramp 4x4

This page wouldn’t be complete without the British Gymnastics site:

We are the UK National Governing Body for the sport of Gymnastics, dedicated to developing gymnasts, coaches and clubs across a range of disciplines.

Go here for the latest news, resources and official update in the world of Gymnastics in Britain.

For a few trampoline specific resources and some news, I like Trampolining Online.

Information & facilities for UK Trampolining clubs

Although I’d say the site hasn’t been updated in a while, there is a shop, the old regional grades information and contact details for the Governing bodies across the UK, including the ones below:

Gymnastics Coaching Blog

Full to bursting with awesome resources this is a go to blog for anything! Including tumbling, trampoline, diving, acrobatics, circus, cheer, dance, martial arts, X sports … and more! With topics ranging from Biomechanics to Cirque, history to roller skating!

Steve Sampson’s Blog

I’ve also recently discovered a blog by fellow British coach, Competitor and Tariff Judge extraordinaire Steve Sampson, who does a great Trampoline, Business and Politics blog with a bit more besides. I was very excited to discover Steve writes about trampoline, because finding UK Trampoline-specific blogs – or just Trampoline related blogs leaves one with pretty slim pickings! So Go Steve!

Hope those are useful! More resources will be added as I discover them.

Happy Bouncing!
