Recreational athletes demonstrating advancing skill and enhanced motivation, may be invited by the coach to join Aeros' Competitive Team. This core group of athletes and their parents form the heart of the KATC and represents a significant commitment to the sport and to the club. Normally an athlete will join the competitive program as a pre-competitive athlete. Competitive athletes will compete against other trampoline athletes in Ontario and Canada at either the provincial or national levels.
Pre-competitive athletes will normally jump a minimum of 6 hours per week. They will work together with the more advanced athletes to increase their skills and refine their form to prepare themselves for future competition. Athletes will normally acquire club tracksuits, but are not required to have club competition uniforms.
Competitive athletes will normally jump 9 or more hours per week. The specific amount will be determined in consultation with the coach. Training hours may vary as competitions approach. Competitive athletes will compete at either the provincial or national level through a series of qualifying meets during the season. Those that qualify may be invited to attend the Provincial, Eastern Canadian and/or National Championships.
When an athlete is interested in joining the competitive team, we will invite them to a try-out practice where they will train with our competitive coaches and athletes and parents will meet with some of our board members to go over specifics such as cost and volunteer commitment.
If you are interested in trying out, please give us a call or send us a message today!
We will be holding competitive tryouts on Friday June 21st from 5:30 to 8:30pm!
