The FTA is taking another approach to help guide these new athletes in the right direction that will allow them to be knowledgeable about the decisions they are making during thei training sessions. The FTA’s perspective is to create a series of small local feeder system style events, leading to larger National events, in order to show them in a live environment that training through safe progression does matter!
The FTA is always looking for new safety measures and new ways to approach the athletes that will educate them and encourage them in a manner that they will understand. We hope they will take their training seriously and implement safety precautions at all times, whether at home or at their local trampoline park.
THE SPORT BORN ON INSTAGRAM (L.A TIMES)
Gtramp is a movement being led by teenagers around the world, short for garden trampoline. They are elite athletes, mostly self-taught, who connected via social media and are now pushing themselves to learn more and more difficult skills on the trampoline. They’re doing triple, quadruple, even quintuple flips (rotations in the air). The boys bounce 12 feet in the air and embellish their moves with multiple twists and an array of skills.
Gtramp is considered a renegade sport, blending the countercultural aspect of skateboarding with the daring of parkour and the energy of freestyle snowboarding, all of it fueled by the new technology. Gtramp has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hashtag #gtramp has more than 200k posts on Instagram, where participants share their progress via photos and video and encourage one other. The powerful combination of social media, along with the accessibility of apps for video editing and, most importantly, the kids themselves has helped fuel sport’s growth.
They are a fiercely loyal band of athletes who care about and support one another. They may train in their own backyards and basements, but through videos and live streams remain firmly connected. Unlike the organized gymnastics, these athletes have taken training into their own hands and forged a tightly knit community in the process.
Gtramp skill is now one of the most popular international freestyle communities organizing many competitions that gather teens from around the world.
