Trampoline Park Guidance (FS120425)

(Published January 2019 replacing version September 2018)

Introduction

Trampoline parks and indoor centres have been springing up across the UK over the past few years. These commercially run centres have a high rate of incidents and injuries occurring on their premises. The following guidance has been developed to support members who are looking to participate in these activities with their young people.

Within Scouting this activity would fall within rule 9.77 - other activities. You can find out more by looking at either trampolining or other activities on the A-Z Directory of Activities.


Planning

When planning to use a trampoline park, consider the following to make sure that your group get the most from their session:


Other things to consider:

Supervision

It is important when planning to use trampoline parks and centres that supervision of Scout members is properly planned for. You must take into consideration the requirements of the park/centre, follow section ratios and put a supervision plan in place.


Disclaimers/Waivers

Trampoline parks should ask for a disclaimer or waiver to be signed for each person taking part in the activity. This is something which parents/carers must sign on behalf of their young person; not the leader. Parents/carers should be given sufficient information along with the disclaimer/waiver to make an informed decision to sign it or not. Leaders can only sign disclaimers/waivers for their own personal participation.

The activity organiser must notify Unity (Scout Insurance Services) before any disclaimers or waivers are signed.
