Trampoline Safety

It is vitally important to use your trampoline properly and follow all safety guidelines. Improper use of a trampoline can result in a serious injury. Most trampoline injuries result from jumpers colliding, landing badly from a somersault or stunt, or falling off the trampoline.
  • Inspect your trampoline before each use to ensure that it is in good repair.
  • Use an enclosure net to improve your trampoline’s safety and stability.
  • Ensure that safety pads and foam pole sleeves are properly installed to cover springs, poles, and the trampoline frame.
  • Make sure there are no objects under the trampoline before jumping.
  • Do not use your trampoline in rain or high winds. Never use a trampoline when lightning is in the area.
  • Do not jump on a wet trampoline.
  • Jumpers should always be supervised by someone who is not on the trampoline, regardless of age or experience level.
  • Remove jewelry and any sharp objects in your pockets before jumping.
  • Teach children to control their bouncing height and landings.
  • Do not attempt somersaults, flips, or gymnastic stunts without proper training and supervision. Serious injuries or death can result from attempting gymnastic stunts without training.
  • Do not jump toward the edges of the trampoline or net enclosure. Teach children to jump toward the center of the trampoline.
  • Use a trampoline ladder to get on and off trampolines that are too high to step on to easily.
  • Never jump off of a trampoline. Teach children to get off the trampoline by stopping bouncing, sitting on the edge, and sliding off.
  • Remove ladders from trampolines when they’re not in use to prevent young children from climbing onto them without supervision.
