Springfree Trampoline wants everyone to enjoy safe jumping in their backyards.
To help keep jumpers safe, Springfree Trampoline offers 10 tips for safe jumping:
- One at a time please – Multiple jumpers increase the risk of injury from collision. Statistics show that with more than one simultaneous user, the smaller/lighter of the two is almost always the one sustaining an injury.
- Don’t flip out – Untrained jumpers run the risk of landing awkwardly.
- Avoid roughhousing – Some kids love to play rough and tumble, but this type of behavior can result in injury.
- Let Fido watch from the ground – While the family pet may love to have a turn, this can cause collisions and damage to the trampoline.
- Keep it clean– Trampolines should be void of foreign objects. Any new object introduced to the trampoline is another potential “hard surface” that can result in injury.
- Stand watch – Keep an eye on children and inexperienced jumpers while they are on the trampoline.
- Steer clear – Do not allow children or pets underneath the trampoline while someone is jumping.
- Stay in control – Stay in the center of the trampoline. If you deviate during jumping, stop and move back to the center.
- Practice safety before and after – Aid jumpers in safely entering and exiting the trampoline.
- Talk it out – Discuss the importance of trampoline safety with your kids, and tell them about the risks of not using it properly.
