Competitions / What Happens? Arrival On the day of the competition you should arrive ahead of your  warm up time. Exact timings for each event are usually announced as late as one week before the competition via the web site and via your coach.
 
 
Warming Up A warm up time is allocated for each performer which usually consists of 4/5 warm up turns each. There will be a Marshal organising the order in which you get your turns. You will then be asked to complete one ‘controlled’ warm up which is your final  practise routine before you compete and are judged.
 
Competing When it’s your turn to compete, competitors are asked to sit/wait on the trampoline until asked to begin by a Chair of Judges. Competitors will then compete the first 10 bounce routine or 'set' routine which is scored by 5 judges. Five scores are displayed, the middle three only are added together to be your score.

The first routine is a fixed or ‘set’ routine and usually everyone in your group will compete the same routine.
 
After everyone in your group has performed their ‘set’ routine you will move onto the second round or ‘voluntary’ routine.  This can often be the same as your first routine.

As your trampolining progresses this voluntary routine may be a more difficult routine of your choice and will include more complex skills. An extra score for difficulty could also be added in this round, however at beginner level / lower levels there is usually no extra score or ‘tariff’  added.
 
Results After both performances your  scores from each round are added together to give your total score.

After everyone in your group has competed the scores will be added and the results announced.

All performers receive a certificate showing their scores and usually the first three places receive awards.
