By Jacinda David, Owner, Just Bounce Trampoline
North York’s Just Bounce Trampoline Club Team Athletes kicked off their season this weekend as they attended the 1st Ontario Cup for Trampoline & Tumbling and brought home some amazing results!
“The addition of Time of Flight to the scores has really helped our own athletes score higher and set themselves above the rest of the pack” says Jacinda David, Coach and co-owner of Just Bounce Trampoline Club. “This means that the athletes are now also given points for how high they are jumping, measured by time spent in the air, in addition to difficulty, form and how close to the center of the trampoline they land.”
These Just Bounce athletes walked away with some heavy hardware and are still wanting more! This event is used by the Provincial Stream athletes to try and qualify for both Ontario Championships and Eastern Canadian Championships. 4 Just Bounce athletes were aiming to hit a mobility score which would allow them to move up to the National Stream in our sport. All 4 of those athletes hit their mobility score and will be able to attend 2nd Ontario Cup as National Level athletes!
Laine McCrory, Mariko Nagano and Ty Zukerman Schure will be offered positions on the Team Ontario Tour to British Columbia based on their performances on the Double-Mini Trampoline, while Mariko and Ty are also being offered a spot on the Individual Trampoline for Team Ontario for this event as well.
“At the beginning of the season, we initiated a new team philosophical statement, “We do things the right way because it is the right thing to do. This team has been living up to this statement all year and the results are showing based on their efforts and their process” says Coach Stephen David. Coaches Jacinda & Stephen David are extremely proud of their team and are looking forward to a great season.
