We offer a unique and fun competitive opportunity for athletes striving for greatness in any or all of the three trampoline and tumbling events. We compete trampoline (an Olympic sport since 2000), power tumbling, and double-mini trampoline. We have a year-round practice schedule, and dedicated and experienced coaches that help foster success in athletes in and out of the sport. Our goal is to increase these athletes’ sense of pride and self-esteem through participation in our program. Athletes will also benefit from increased coordination, strength, flexibility, and maturity.
The MHG Trampoline and Tumbling competitive Team is geared towards gymnasts dedicated to Trampoline, Tumbling, and Double Mini Trampoline. Our TnT Team gymnasts have surpassed expected requirements of both our recreational classes and our Intermediate/Advanced program.
Although Trampoline and Tumbling can be seen as and individual sport, here at MHG we encourage the development of a cohesive team atmosphere and the support of each and every competitor. Our TnT team learns healthy competition with not only other teams of Minnesota, but with their own teammates during in house and preparation competitions. We encourage anyone dedicated and passionate about the sport of Trampoline and Tumbling to ask about our competitive team program.
Along with developing high difficulty trampoline and tumbling routines, our team aims to improve:
- New skills in a safe and encouraging environment
- Strength, conditioning, and flexibility
- Teamwork and encouraging fellow athletes
- Overcoming adversity
- Communication and developing relationships within the MHG community
- Time management and self discipline in and outside of practice
- Developing confidence under the pressure of competition

2018 Summer Practice Schedule
The American Academy of Pediatrics has released a new study on the benefits of a structured trampoline training program, as a competitive sport or for general fitness. The study stresses the importance of “appropriate and careful supervision, competent instruction, and proper equipment and safety measures” as found in USAG member clubs, as opposed to backyard trampolines.
This study also raises awareness of the dangers of backyard trampolines, particularly without proper training and supervision.
