In our previous post, we mentioned that trampolining can help to improve confidence. But how exactly does it work?
For kids, especially the younger ones, trampolining might be an unfamiliar and occasionally terrifying experience as their sense of balance is not as developed as adults yet. Trampolining forces their bodies to constantly adjust to the movement of the trampolines and they often lose their balance on the mats.
However, their sense of balance improves when they spend prolonged time on the trampolines and can provide a sense of achievement when they finally stop falling down as much as when they first started. This achievement helps build confidence and makes them more willing to move on to new things such as learning basic trampoline tricks.
The instantaneous gratification of being able to learn and do something independently also helps to build confidence and this can carry over to other aspects in the kids’ lives as well! For example, instead of avoiding new and unfamiliar things, they would be more likely to try it out for themselves.
Trampolining is more than just a fun physical activity. It can also serve as learning platform and be a positive influence in the kids’ lives. Hence, wes, we greatly encourage parents to join the kids for the jump session as this can be a great confidence booster to them and make the jump session so much more enjoyable!
