Momentum will remain the same until changed by an external force.  This applies to both linear and angular momentum Conservation of Momentum Regardless of the type of momentum wether angular or linear, once the body has left contact with the bed, momentum will be conserved.   There is nothing theContinue Reading

Rotation about an axis Angular momentum is created by torques whilst in contact with the bed during the take off phase.  The energy remains in the body until it is removed by other torques upon landing in the bed.  You must be in contact with the bed to create aContinue Reading

Linear Momentum Movement from A to B The amount of energy in the body as it moves from A to B.  Momentum is created by external forces and remains in the body until removed by an external force. Eg, we push off the bed for straight bouncing, the moment ourContinue Reading

Momentum The amount of energy in the body as it moves Momentum depends on the mass and the amount of force applied.Continue Reading

The centre of mass is an imaginary point.  It is the point at which the body’s weight can be considered to act. It represents the centre of all the mass and the body will balance and rotate around this imaginary point. The position of the centre of mass will dependContinue Reading

Axes of rotation  are Imaginary lines which represent the axes about which the body should rotate during the flight phase of trampolining skills.  In trampolining we can conveniently describe all trampoline skills using three axes of rotation. It is easier to remember where each axis is if you can image yourselfContinue Reading

A rotational push or pull. Rotational push or pull that results in the body rotating about one or more axes Torque occurs when the force is not directed  through the  exact centre of the centre of mass (CoM)  This is know as  an off-centre force Examples.   ○ Pushing/pulling aContinue Reading

The Centre of Mass must remain over the base support to maintain  stability. A stable object is difficult to move or push off balance. Two factors that effect stability are the objects base support and the position of the centre of mass. The centre of mass must remain inside theContinue Reading

It is advisable to have gym mats around the trampoline to protect your pupils when getting on or off the trampoline and from trips and falls, which are common place in the trampolining environment. Gym mats should not only cover the sides of the trampoline, they should extend past theContinue Reading
