About The Event

On June 29, 2018 the GTGames will return to Escondido for the second time to showcase the best of the best in the “Gtramp” community, or backyard trampoline athlete community. Still a movement in its infancy it has steadily grown with the explosion of trampoline parks opening up in their cities. More kids today than a decade or two decades ago will go to trampoline parks to learn their skills, which they then translate into use on their own backyard trampoline. Entries are by invitation only based on video submissions with the hashtag #GTGames2018. However, we are offerign 25 tickets for a Friday afternoon meet & greet session for locals to come out and bounce with the athletes. Spectating over the weekend is FREE for fans and families. Spectators are always welcome and information can be obtained on the GTGames website at: www.gtrampgames.com

GT-GAMES COMPETITION RULES

The following is a breakdown of the “competition” system of the Skybound GTGames presented by GRT. It is important to emphasize that this year’s GTGames are not focused on concrete analytical judging but an overall impression based on:

Difficulty - How many flips and twists the athlete accomplishes

Execution - The level of accuracy and precision the athlete is able to maintain during the skills. Is it safe and controlled?

Creativity - How unique are the athletes tricks compared to other athletes? Includes unique positions in the air and unique combinations.

It is important to note that this year the GTGames will be based on creating more publicity around the event and increasing the safety awareness level. We have carefully chosen a wide range of athletes from the hashtag submissions to compete in both junior and senior age groups.

Juniors will be from age 11 to 14 and Seniors are from 15 and up.

We are creating a new awareness for the G-Tramp community, not the actual determination of specific skill levels and quantifiable results comparing athletes. As the awareness grows different categories, styles of competition and opportunities will become available.

Athletes should be supportive of each other no matter what the competition outcome is. Although there is always a bit of controversy as to judging and scoring subjective movements, our judges have taken an oath to use their best discretion in an open and fair system and their acrobatic background to judge based on overall creativity, control/execution and degree of difficulty. This is why we have chosen judges within the freestyle and traditional communities that are well known for their integrity and knowledge.

Acrobatic skills that seem dangerous or inconsistent and not ready for competition will not be allowed.

All athletes are encouraged to only showcase skills they are confident in and ask for help if need be. With many years of experience in the sport of trampoline, gymnastics, tricking and tumbling, our judges understand what is a true demonstration of skill and what is simply “chucking it.” Judges have the right to stop athletes from performing skills that are dangerous. At first the athlete will be asked nicely to pick another skill, or do a few more preperations if any of the judges deem any athletes to be jumping dangerously. If the athlete gives undue attitude, disrespect or blatantly ignores the judge or organizer, they may be removed from the field for the entire event. This is a promotional event to inspire G-Tramp Athletes to take training seriously and to inspire education and safety for the community as a whole. Any dangerous bouncing will not be permitted.

Event Options

Below are a few options of events that we will host during the actual competition portion of the event. Not all athletes have to compete at each event.

GAME of T.R.A.M.P

Athletes will be put into groups of 6 and assigned to a trampoline. Depending on exact number of participants this may be modified.

A set time limit will be enforced to keep on schedule. To be determined at the event.

Athletes try to one-up each other in a friendly game of “who can match the trick” each time an athlete is unable to land the skill they receive a letter

Each athlete will go in order to set the next round to ensure all athletes have a chance to set. The judge at your trampoline will keep everyone on track as well as record letters of all athletes.


Combinations of no more than 4 skills will be allowed unless agreed upon by entire group on that trampoline


 Athletes must call ‘landed’ or ‘not landed’ prior to the new set skill and any other clarifications that are necessary such as positions, number of bounces etc.


Skills deemed not landed means the athlete can land on their knees or back/rear-end 


Double bouncing will NOT be allowed 


Hands touching the trampoline do not count as landed 


Athletes who accumulate all 5 letters of the word TRAMP are eliminated 


The last athlete remaining from each trampoline who has accumulated the least amount of letters moves onto the Finals on Sunday and competes for a top 3 finish in Junior or Senior

2 Trick Spectacular

Athletes demonstrate their best 2 or 3 skill combinations

Athletes have to show their style, creativity and difficulty. Each component will be scored out of 10 for a total of 30. Each judge is scoring the overall impression of Difficulty, Execution and Creativity. All aspects are weighted equally. Athletes who only focus on one aspect will receive lower scores overall. Think of it as a Penalty for only demonstrating one aspect.

Greg Roe, the Host, has the option to give an additional 1.0 bonus score to any athlete given the case that the scores are tied or too close to call, based on showmanship and personality and crowd engagement demonstrated throughout the performance


Athletes will be allowed if they choose to nominate one person to double bounce them 


A second ‘spotter’ will be on the trampoline to throw a mat if judges deem necessary 


Athletes can have two attempts to land their combo


Tricks that are deemed dangerous by the judges, Skybound or GRT will not be allowed. Athletes will be requested to change their trick or be eliminated 


The top ten (10) contestants for junior and senior will move onto the Finals on Sunday and compete for a top 3 finish


30 Second Freestyle


Athletes have 30 seconds, timed, to show their style, creativity and difficulty. Each component will be scored out of 10 for a total of 30. Each judge is scoring the overall impression of Difficulty, Execution and Creativity. All aspects are weighted equally. Athletes who only focus on one aspect will receive lower scores overall. Think of it as a Penalty for only demonstrating one aspect.


Greg Roe, the Host, has the option to give an additional 1.0 bonus score to any athlete given the case that the scores are tied or too close to call, based on showmanship and personality ad crowd engagement demonstrated throughout the performance
