Trampoline Zonal 2022-23
This year’s Zonal Round was held on Sunday 15th January 2023 at Jumpers Rebound Centre, Mill Road, Gillingham ME7 1HN.
The results are now in, and can be downloaded here. Please note that there were a number of adjustments to the teams results as a result of technical challenges with the scoring system. Karen has emailed all of the affected schools explaining how this will be addressed so that nobody misses out.
Huge thanks as always to the volunteers who make these events possible, and of course to the amazing trampolinists and their coaches who have worked so hard to get to this level of competition.
Congratulations to all of the qualifiers. Information and the entry form for the Finals are now available.
You can download the start list here. Please check this carefully for your entry and ensure that names are spelled correctly, your competitors are in the correct group and that teams/individuals are correct. This list will be used to generate certificates and given to the t-shirt company to print their transfers.

In order to get the competition started on time please wait until the competition has started before you check in if your competitors are not in flight 1. Check in is on the 2nd floor.

Officials – all to report to Mel Alesi on the 2nd Floor
Check in officials should arrive at 7.30am. Once the initial busy period has passed please agree between yourselves a rota for manning the desk for the remainder of the day. Once the last flight has started (or everyone is checked in, whichever is the sooner) you are free to go. Please let Mel Alesi know you are leaving.
Refreshments and lunch
Please arrive at 8am and go to the second floor (one side of the room is being used for check-in, the other side for judges, please go to the judges side). Please ensure that the urn is switched on and tea/coffee making is set up for the judges. Once that is done please see Harriet Curtis so that you can bring the judges lunches in. Outside of lunch time please ensure that the urn is topped up and the area is kept clean and tidy. Once flight 3 is underway please set out the judges lunches so they are ready for when the judges have their lunch at the end of that flight. After lunch please tidy up and leave anything remaining out for judges to snack on during the rest of the day and ensure that the urn is topped up regularly.
Please arrive at 7.45am ready for doors to open to spectators at 8am. After you have checked in and collected the float you will be at a table downstairs. Once the initial influx has subsided please agree breaks between yourselves ensuring that someone is on the desk at all times. Once the last flight of the day is underway you are free to go, please ensure that the cash tin is handed to myself or Mel before you leave.
Please arrive at 8am. You will be on the doors to the competition hall ensuring that only competitors with wristbands, coaches and judges have access, and ensuring that footwear is removed upon entry and no food or drink is taken into the competition hall with the exception of water in sealed bottles.
