RULES & SAFETY | Sky High Trampolining

Safety

Freestyle Trampolining is an extreme sport and just like any other physical sport there are risks involved. However if you listen and follow the instructions of our fully trained staff members and comply with the Sky high rules these risks are greatly reduced.
 

Age 0-5 years

Sky High now offers it services for under 5-year-olds and our safety training is tailored to this minimum level of maturity. Please bring along on your first visit proof of your date of birth/passport to confirm their age and you will be admitted to Sky High. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) indicates that if more than one person is using a trampoline, the person weighing less is five times more likely to be injured and children under 6 years old are particularly vulnerable to injury. However, we have many experienced gymnast and safety rules in place at our venue capable of providing a safe and enjoyable environment at Sky High for your children. The child should always bounce in the centre of the trampoline, no more than one person should bounce on the trampoline at the same. If in doubt seek advice from our site staff who are experienced gymnasts. We recommend that all under 5’s are accompanied and supervised at all times by an 18+ adult. Under 5's are not allowed on the Air Bag Zone, our staff will announce when Mini Jumpers can participate in the Dodgeball Area during designated timeslots. The adult accompanying a mini jumper must also sign the Risk Acknowledgement and Waiver on their behalf.

Age 5-13 years

Please bring along on your first visit proof of your date of birth/passport to confirm their age and you will be admitted to Sky High. 5 - 13 year olds must be supervised by an adult aged 18+ throughout the duration of their visit. This 18+ person must also sign the Risk Acknowledgement and Waiver on their behalf. As a spectating adult, you do not have to join in if you don’t want to and you can spectate for free. You can grab a coffee from the café and enjoy the view from our elevated viewing area.

Age 14-15 Years

If you are aged 14-15 years, you will have a level of maturity and therefore do not need to be fully supervised at Sky High. A person aged 18+ must drop you off at site and sign the Risk Acknowledgement and Waiver on your behalf. After that, your parents can leave and you can start your Sky High experience.

Age 16-17 years

You can sign your Risk Acknowledgement and Waiver yourself and you don’t need anyone 18+ to come with you. However, you cannot supervise or sign for under 16’s.

Age 18+

You can supervise and sign for others as well as yourself. If you are supervising, you can do this as a participant or as a spectator (spectating is free). Each person 18+ can supervise a maximum of 10 under 16’s.
