In competition, it can be simple jumps in the upright position, pike, folded or riding on more complex combinations of somersaults or twists. The score is based on the difficulty and the total number of seconds spent in the air. The points are deducted in case of bad shape and horizontal displacement from the center of the bed.

Outside of the Olympics, the competitions are called GymSport, Gymnastics Trampoline (TG) or Gymnastics which includes the Trampoline, Synchronized Trampoline, Double Mini-Trampoline, and Tumbling events.

In the early 1930s, George Nissen observed trapeze artists perform tricks by jumping off the safety net. He made the first modern trampoline in his garage to reproduce it on a smaller scale and used it for his diving and tumbling activities. He created a company for the construction of trampolines and used as a brand, variant of the Spanish word trampoline as a trademark.

The first individual trampoline competitions were held in colleges and schools in the United States and Europe. At the beginning of the competition, there was no defined format, as performers often performed long routines and even climbed again, if falling off partway through.

Competition Format

The competition had rounds as qualification and final. In qualifying, the gymnasts performed two routines mandatory and voluntary. The scores of both were added together and the top eight gymnasts qualified for the final. The final consisted of a single routine, with unreported qualifying scores.

The qualifying system underwent a major revision following the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. Team competitions in Artistic Gymnastics will be reduced from five to four members, but a maximum of two additional places will be available for competitors in individual events, allowing in principle for one or two athletes per National Olympic Committee (NOC) to enter as specialists.

In order to link the FIG competitions to the Olympic Games, it will now be possible to qualify for the Olympic Games on the basis of a total of scores obtained in the World Cup Series of Artistic Gymnastics and various Continental gymnastics championships.
