Freestyle Trampoline builds on the basic skills of traditional trampolining and then allows the athlete to develop their own set of skills using a fundamental progression of skill development for each trick. Traditional “competitive” Trampoline works on the skill movement in the 3 main axis whereas Freestyle Trampoline uses all axis, multiple trampolines, walls and structures. Freestyle Trampoline is the basis for spatial awareness skills in all sports. No longer is it just the “Extreme” sports that are doing aerial movements.
All lessons are taught by certified coaches using the Canada Sport For Life age-appropriate levels. Classes start for kids age 3 and up. Start with the basics of trampoline safety and continue to work on developing skills at your athlete’s pace and comfort level.
We love to Bike, especially when it involves jumps, bumps and pumps. We have a few different types of programs to meet your bikers needs. The Bike Skills Development Program is designed to build riders all-around skills. Riders will learn a solid foundation with emphasis on jumping skills, cornering and generating speed with pumping. These skills will set a core foundation for all aspects of biking. In Nanaimo, we use all areas of the Steve Smith bike park for this training. We offer training levels for riders of all ages and abilities.
Mt Bike Freeride is designed to teach the fundamentals of Mt Biking. Athletes should have solid bike skills already and be ready to transition to single track trails. Bikes must be able to handle the varied off-road terrain and be tuned and ready to ride. In Nanaimo we ride the trail systems in Dumont and Westwood. We offer training for riders aged 8 and up who are intermediate and higher level.
BMX Race is designed to improve all aspects of their BMX race skills. Riders will learn a solid foundation with emphasis on jump skills, cornering, generating speed with pumping, gates & race strategy. We will utilize the Nanaimo BMX track for this training. These sessions are for riders who have solid bike skills. Riders should be able to ride the BMX track with confidence from the start hill and be comfortable in the gate on their own.
Skateboarding is the ultimate freestyle sport and today’s top athletes have taken aerials to a whole new level. Skateboarding will be debuting at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and a whole new world is opening up for young athletes. Our skateboarding programs start for first timers all the way through to advanced skaters. We use a mix of mini pipe, street and park features in our progression. Skateboarding is a great, and cheap, way for kids, of all ages, to get out and get moving. Set your kids up for success by having a great time starting and building on a solid foundation of skills.
Parkour is about getting from one point to another in a complex environment and without assistive equipment. We also focus on teaching tricks and acrobatic skills that can be combined to add complexity and style to the movement. Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, crawling and other movements suitable for the situation or obsticle.
