Trampoline instructions and resources
Safe operation of your trampoline
However trampolines are large, heavy pieces of equipment with a lot of moving parts, and can cause injury to people setting them up or putting them away unless they are properly trained. Trampolines must be set up and put away correctly in accordance with British Gymnastics guidelines and instructions from the manufacturer.
We are pleased to provide below various resources regarding the setting up, using and folding away of trampolines:
British Gymnastics resources
British Gymnastics offer useful documents providing guidance on the setting up and folding away of trampolines and the matting necessary around trampolines:
|General guidelines on the use of trampolines||Trampolining Code of Practice||Trampoline matting provisions|
Association for Physical Education (AfPE) resources
The Association for Physical Education is the primary professional body for PE teachers and provides guidance and advice to its members such as the document below regardiing the use of trampolines in schools

Continental Sports resources
We are pleased to provide our trampoline owners manual for download below. A copy of this manual is supplied with all our new trampolines and the owner of the trampoline should ensure they are aware and have read and understood this document. It is free to copy and a copy should be provided to all coaches, teachers and facilities staff who will be setting up or using the trampoline.

Video instruction manuals
We are pleased to show below videos demonstrating how easy it is to set up and fold away trampolines correctly if you follow the instructions. If you follow the instructions as demonstrated in the videos, setting up and folding away your Continental trampolines will quickly become second nature.
We have shown three videos below. The first shows the smaller school model "77 Series" trampoline on fixed height roller stands. The second shows the larger club model "99 Series" (which is the same size as the competition model "101 Series") on Safelift hydraulically assisted roller stands. If you have a 77 Series trampoline on Safelift stands or a 99/101 Series on fixed height stands you will need to combine the method from both videos. The third video shows how to attach the end deck spotting platforms to your trampoline.
