Backyard Trampoline Safety Tips
Trampolining has become a fun and fitness sport for families around the world. Though a lot of
people prefer to preach about how risky and dangerous the trampoline is, most of us still enjoy
it. By simply learning and playing by the rules we won't have much concern with accidents.
Trampolines don't kill or injure people. The way it is used is what causes accidents. If we learn
about the causes of accidents and how to prevent them we won't have problems with
Buy the Right Trampoline
Find the right trampoline store and choose a trampoline with padding to protect bouncers from
bits that could hurt them, such as the springs, hooks, and frame. Just because there are plenty
of stores around or one by your street does not mean you just hop in and pick a trampoline
there. The first step to safety is buying the right trampoline.
Get a good safety net, it helps keep bouncers on the trampoline. Even when there is a wrong
landing it helps keep the bouncer in a safe place instead of falling off the trampoline. Falling off
is a major cause of trampoline injuries. Providing measures to avoid falling off would have
greatly reduced accident possibility.
Always follow the product instructions and warnings before use. Take time to read through the
instructions and be sure you understand what the information the manufacturer is trying to pass
One at a time! Most accidents happen when there are two or more bouncers using the
trampoline at the same time. Parents or supervisors should ensure this rule is religiously
adhered to. About 70% of trampoline accidents happen as a result of double jumping. If you
avoid double jumping you've also avoided 70% of the possibility of an accident.
If you do let two people bounce together, make sure they’re a similar size - adults and children
shouldn’t bounce together. Better still double jumping should be totally banned.
While the most common injuries are to the wrist, elbow, and shoulder, awkward landings especially on the head or neck - can cause life-changing injuries. If we can get our kids off
performing stunts we would have reduced greatly chances of trampoline accidents.
Learn from the experts - for example at school, gymnastics or trampolining club - before
attempting anything fancy. Visit a trampoline park and get a trainer to train you. Don't do what
the experts do when you haven't learned how to properly do it. Don't get too excited and begin
acting recklessly. Play safe!
Save the Olympic somersaults until you know what you’re doing. With some patience and
dedication, you can learn but before then play safe.
Keep it Simple
Don’t let kids bring sticks, bikes, scooters, skateboards, plastic swords, cricket stumps or
anything else they could fall against or impale themselves on the trampoline
Remember - alcohol and trampolining don’t mix. If you want to drink don't jump. If you want to
jump don't drink.
Never place animals or pets on a trampoline - they don’t enjoy bouncing as much as you.
Avoid ties, scarves or anything around the neck that could get caught and strangle you.
Young children have the least control over their bodies and are more likely to get hurt. A
trampoline tent should be used if kids must play on it.
Many trampolines aren’t suitable for children under 6 - always check the manufacturer’s
instructions first. Safety should be your watchword not just an opportunity to bounce, have fun
and have some fun.
Trampoline Safe Keeping
Your trampoline will last longer if you pack it away over winter. If you must use it then ensure
you keep it safe for use always.
Whether you pack it up or leave it out you need to check regularly for rips, tears and worn or
damaged parts and repair them before use
Take time to drill your kids on these safety tips. Make it a test for anyone who must use it. Test
them regularly on safety tips and be sure they are abreast of the safety tips.
Those who fail the test should be reeducated and tested again. Trampolining is fun but safety
must be our foremost concern as parents.
Trampoline accidents are absolutely preventable. They don't have to happen if we do what is
right. These accidents don't just happen, there are causes if we can find them and avoid them
we would have gone a long way in assuring safety for our kids and family.
