Who we are:
We are a professional trampoline gymnastics club based in Loughlinstown and UCD, offering camps and classes to anyone from 4 years of age and up, including adults, in a selection of different classes. Our classes are made up of small groups working one-on-one with their coach on one of our Olympic quality trampolines, so every participant works at their own optimal level and pace. This one to one method makes our classes extremely suitable for people with unique or specific needs such as Dyspraxia, or any motor planning or learning disorders.
Trampolining for Motor Control Development:
As you know, trampoline or rebound training is an excellent activity for use in development of motor planning, balance and coordination. Currently in SuperSonic we have a number of people training with us who have motor control or learning disorders, and we have found that these members have benefited very well from working within our classes. Importantly, they have had no issues integrating perfectly within our regular class setup, as the small groups and direct one-to-one coaching allows for flexibility and focused attention.
Trampolining for Confidence Building:
Our classes are designed to be inclusive and supportive of each child's developmental needs in such a way that the child can build confidence in their own abilities and gain vital self confidence for the development of social skills. We have seen this successfully work in several children who train with us each week. Even in a busy gym environment, these children have learned to adapt and confidently manage themselves through the class, improving dramatically over the course of our terms.
Our experience in this area is, we believe, second to none in the country. Overseen by one of our top coaches, Aisling Smith, all our coaches are directed in best practice on how to work with development of trampolinists with specific or special needs. Aisling is our club's development specialist, a qualified research scientist and psychologist, specialising in cognitive and developmental psychology, and a highly qualified trampoline coach on top. She brings up to the minute information, techniques and ideas specifically beneficial to this area of training.
