Be safe at Jump Nation
Here at Jump Nation, your safety is our number one priority (as well as ensuring you are all having fun of course!). But jumping on trampolines is an inherently dangerous activity and is categorised as an extreme sport. As such, it is really important for all participants to understand the risks and to follow set rules, safety guidelines and jump within their own ability. Serious injury and death can result from the use of trampolines.
Our rules and guidelines are designed to minimise risk of injury of both yourself and others. You will see our rules displayed near to the jump arena, as well as being told about them in our safety briefing before you jump.
The Jump Nation referees will also be ensuring that the rules are adhered to on the arena and at all dedicated sections, including the Air Bag, Dunk Nation Basketball & 3D Dodgeball.
Jump Nation operates a yellow and red card system. Any participant endangering themselves or others will be given a yellow card and an appropriate warning. Any subsequent offending behaviour will result in the participant being given a red card, where they will be sent off the jump arena and not allowed to return to any session that day. If an action is considered extremely dangerous then the jump referees reserve the right to issue an immediate red card. Our referees decisions are final!
We want all of our jumpers to have a fantastic, fun-filled, high-flying experience and leave us feeling exhilarated! We therefore do everything we can to reduce the risk of injuries associated with trampolining. We have designed a highly robust bounce arena structure and had it independently tested. We train our staff to the highest standards and continually research the market to always ensure we continue to use the best quality equipment. As well as our scheduled maintenance programme, properly trained staff perform both daily and weekly checks on all equipment to ensure its safety.
We ask that all participants over the age of 16 years complete a waiver form before entering the jump arena (a parent/guardian aged over 18, must complete a waiver form for any participants under the age of 16 years). Please note that you may be asked to provide valid proof of age photo ID on entry. Waivers must be filled out completely & correctly with all information required in order for them to be valid and allow arena access.
Unfortunately there are NO EXCEPTIONS. No waiver = No Jumping!
If you need assistance in completing the waiver for any reason, a member of our staff will always be on hand and happy to help!
