At KSTP, our focus is on providing a quality experience for all our members by nurturing each students strengths and building a sense of confidence and achievement. The sport of tumbling and trampolining is ideal for boys and girls alike, the focus being on fitness and strength, rather than body image, is we believe a healthy attitude for the development of your child.

We are proud to be accredited providers of Gymnastics Australia’s LaunchPad Initiative and The Australian Sports Commission’s Sporting Schools Program.
About the disciplines:
Gymnasts who excel in this discipline combine a high degree of spatial awareness with power, strength, coordination and courage. The gymnast has a 25 metre track on which to perform a series of somersaults and twists. High scoring runs include no less than two double somersaults with additional twisting elements.
Gymnasts perform routines, which contain a variety of twists, bounces and somersaults. Precise technique and perfect body control are the hallmarks of a good routine, with judges evaluating gymnasts on degree of difficulty, execution and flight time.
Athletes will compete the same routine side by side, aiming to be completely in time with one another. Pairings are usually designed so that that skill level of the athletes complements one another. This event is a crown favourite to watch.
Double Mini Trampoline (DMT)
Double Mini is a combination of gymnastics, trampolining and athletics. Similar to the vault apparatus in artistic gymnastics, athletes sprint down a track, before jumping onto the DMT to perform two skills in a row with numerous twists and flips prior to dismounting onto a landing mat.
