PAYG RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

The following skills MAY be practiced after a thorough assessment by a NCCP Comp 1 coach and under their direct supervision:

  • Maximum of 1 forward or backward rotation (360°) allowed with coach permission and supervision
  • Maximum of 180° inverted twists allowed with coach permission and supervision

DROP-IN CLASS SKILL LIMITATIONS: The following skills are likely NOT ALLOWED during PAYG classes and pop-ups, based on coach qualifications:

  • NO 1.5 – double + inverted twists (e.g. NO Rudy’s, Randy’s, etc), unless a NCCP Comp 2 certified coach is present to assess and instruct.
  • NO 1 ¼, 1 ½, double + rotations, front and back
    • NO off axis skills (e.g. NO corkscrews, or other snow/ skateboard tricks), unless an Air 2 certified coach is present to assess and instruct. The exception is Fridays Freestyle Ski and Snowboard drop-in which has an Air 2 certified coach present.

These limitations are for the safety of the athletes. PAYG athletes caught attempting any prohibited skills, will be removed from the trampoline immediately, as per posted trampoline rules. If you would like to learn more advanced skills, please speak with a coach about our program offerings.

PARENT INVOLVEMENT DURING PAYG: Parents of children 6YO+ (who do not require 1-1 adult caregiver support for self-regulation and safety) are expected to watch from upstairs in the parent lounge.

If you are required to be in the gym as a 1-1 support of a child with exceptionalities, we ask that you refrain from providing instruction or coaching. Parents/ caregivers are welcome to reinforce the safety rules and feedback for basic skills provided by our coaches. As with all Gymnastics Ontario clubs, only NCCP coaches insured by the club (in this case, Vertical Zone) are permitted to provide instruction and teach new skills.

PLEASE NOTE: Vertical Zone Trampoline Club is NOT a trampoline park or indoor playground. We are a trampoline gymnastics training facility, governed by Gymnastics Ontario policies and staffed with coaches who are trained in accordance with the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). It is our goal to provide an environment that is as safe as possible.

RECREATION CLASSES

These classes follow a level 1 through 5 structure that allows the athletes to start with basic skills and progress to difficult inversions and twists. Each athlete progresses through levels at their own pace. NEW for 2020: Progress is assessed and documented on a report card provided at the end of each session.

COMPETITIVE CLASSES

These classes are broken into 3 groups: Inter-club, Provincial and National level classes. The Inter-club classes are similar to the Recreational classes, but have an additional focus on executing routines and give the athlete the opportunity to compete.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What should my child wear to train at Vertical Zone?

All athletes who jump at Vertical Zone must wear suitable gym attire. Children should wear 1 piece gymnastics leotards and/or lycra or cotton shorts and a properly sized T-shirt. No zippers, ballet skirts or loose-fitting clothing are permitted. Long hair must be tied back. Dangling earrings, bracelets, watches, anklets, rings, or necklaces should be left at home. Athletes are barefoot or wear socks in the gym. Open wounds or warts must be bandaged with athletic tape and socks must be worn.

If I miss a recreational class, do I get a make-up class?

If Vertical Zone cancels classes due to unforeseen circumstances, we will provide make up classes for those athletes affected by the cancellation. If your athlete misses a class for personal reasons, there will be no make-up class, as our programs are purposefully scheduled and staffed according to registrations.

Can I just drop in to jump on a trampoline?

Due to the ongoing pandemic and changes to our programming, Vertical Zone is re-inventing Public Jump/ Drop-in by offering Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) classes and pop-ups! 1 hour PAYG classes and pop-ups require registration on Uplifter which closes 1 hour before the start time.

What is a GO fee?

As a member club of Gymnastics Ontario (GO), we are required to pay additional insurance fees directly to GO. These fees protect the athlete and club by providing additional insurance if necessary. Being a GO accredited club insures your athletes are being coached by trained National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) coaches. Below is the link to Gymnastics Ontario website that explains what the Membership Fee covers.

Can I leave the gym, once I’ve dropped my athlete off for a recreational class or public jump booking?

Parents must remain at Vertical Zone for athletes 4 years and younger, or for any athletes who will require assistance going to the bathroom. For safety reasons, our coaches will not leave their group unsupervised, and there are rarely additional staff available to provide 2-1, staff-camper, supervision required when managing personal care issues. For public jumpers, we request parents and caregivers remain at the gym in case of emergency.

My athlete is progressing very well in their recreational class and is interested in competing. How can my athlete join Vertical Zone’s competitive team?

Competitive team tryouts usually occur in the summer. However, you can email our Head Coach, Allison Mackay ([email protected]) to inquire about a tryout at anytime. If there is still space on the competitive team, Allison will book a tryout time for your athlete. When the competitive team is full, there are Elite Recreational classes for those athletes who are waitlisted for competition opportunities.

Are there subsidies available for my child to participate in your recreational programs?

Vertical Zone is committed to creating a fun, fitness experience while learning the fundamentals of trampoline.
