DMT (double mini trampoline) is another discipline of trampolining which is offered across two of our sites in Surrey, – Tadworth and Donyngs. DMT involves both running and performing skills which are usually learnt on trampoline before transferring and executing on the DMT.
To begin you run along a matted area to build speed and momentum before mounting the apparatus, similar to a large trampette, you are allowed one straight jump before performing your first skill on the top of the DMT and then a second skill off onto a specific matted area. A DMT has a sloped area, known as the mount, and a flat area, called the spotter. When a gymnast competes DMT at regional or national level, they perform two rounds which consist of two passes in each. A pass has 2 skills which are both performed on the DMT.
It can be either of the following:
- A mount skill from the mount onto the spotter area and then a dismount skill off onto the landing zone (a large matted area)
- A straight jump from the mount to spotter (not marked), a skill that takes off and lands on the spotter, then a dismount off
