          • Use your trampoline only with mature, knowledgeable supervision.
            • DO NOT attempt somersaults. Somersaults are advanced skills that should be attempted only by experienced and competitive trampolinists, and then only with a strict supervision, professional instruction and additional safety equipment. Most crippling injuries that occur during trampoline activities involve somersaults.
              • Permit only one performer at a time on the trampoline. Two (2) or more performers create additional risks of injury due to collisions, being bounced off the trampoline and unexpected responses by the trampoline mat.
                • DO NOT use the trampoline when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
                  • DO NOT use the trampoline as a springboard to or from other objects.
                    • DO NOT use the trampoline without proper trampoline safety pads.
                      • Stop your bounce by flexing your knees as your feet come in contact with the trampoline mat.
                        • Secure the trampoline against unauthorized and unsupervised use.
                          • Learn fundamental bounces and body positions thoroughly before trying more advanced skills.
                            • Climb on and off the trampoline. DO NOT JUMP.
                              • Avoid bouncing too high or when tired.
                                • Focus your eyes on the trampoline. Failure to do so may result in a lack of balance and control. Always control your bounce.
                                  • Keep objects away that could interfere with the performer. Maintain adequate overhead clearance, and there must be no objects beneath the trampoline.
                                    • Use the trampoline only when the mat is clean and dry. A wet mat is very slick and prevents a controlled bounce, as well as a stable landing. A worn or damaged mat should be replaced immediately.
                                      • Do not stand on trampoline frame or pads while waiting for a turn to bounce.
                                        • For further information or additional instructional materials, contact a competent trampoline instructor.
