Who are are we?
We are a friendly and approachable Trampoline and DMT club based at Cambourne Sports and Fitness Centre, Cambridgeshire, who welcome bouncers of all ages and abilities from beginners through to National Competitors.
We are registered with British Gymnastics through whom all our coaches and committee are trained and are dedicated to providing positive trampolining opportunities for all within Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas.
How do we operate:
Cambourne Comets is run by a committee of volunteers and we employ a number of coaches up to level 3. We believe in communication and accountability and are fully committed to the welfare of the children bouncing with us.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
To ensure the welfare and safety of our members the Club has adopted in full the British Gymnastics 'Health, Safety and Welfare' policy, Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy and their 'Child protection Policy'
We have appointed welfare officers who are fully involved in the running of the club and with whom issues can be raised.
What days do we train?
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.
We also offer Double Mini-Trampoline (DMT) sessions on Thursdays at 6.30pm.
How much does it cost?
Sessions cost £5.50 and run for an hour. You will be invoiced at the beginning of each term. We are happy to allow the payments to be spread over the term but ask all accounts are cleared before the last week of the term. We will assume membership is continuing unless we are emailed to confirm cancellation.
Payment is done by bank transfer of which details will be sent with invoice.
How are the sessions run?
Sessions have either 2 or 3 classes running at the same time and bouncers are allocated a coach to suit their skills and needs. We provide one-to-one coaching to ensure we meet the individual needs of the member.
Bouncers will take part in a five minute floor warm up at the start of the session, followed by a warm up on the trampoline bed and then they are all set to train.
What should you wear?
Suitable sports clothing without buttons, zips, toggles, hoods etc that may get caught on the bed
Trampoline shoes or socks are a must.
Jewellery, watches, badges and anything else that may catch must be removed.
Long hair must be tied back.
Regular bouncers will be expected to become members of Cambourne Comets Trampoline Club and British Gymnastics (BG). Fees are payable monthly thereafter preferably by standing order.
Club membership costs £45 and includes affliation to Eastern Counties Gymnastic Association (ECGA).
We offer a taster session so that you can "try before you buy" where you can come along and meet the coaches and train with other members. There is no charge for the trial session if you decide not to join the club.
Holiday sessions are handled on a pay as you go basis and must be booked in advance.
