'REBOUND PLUS'
(Online version for trampoline coaches)


REBOUND PLUS IS A SPECIAL NEEDS TRAMPOLINE TRAINING COURSE
which is an add-on module to the Rebound Therapy practitioner certificate.

The course equips candidates to teach trampoline exercises up to Winstrada grade 8 to people with disabilities.

 

Pre requisites for the ONLINE version of the Rebound Plus course:

  1. The candidate needs to have completed the Rebound Therapy practitioner course and have an up to date certificate (The Rebound Therapy course can also be taken online if required.)
  2. The candidate must have a trampoline coaching course that is recognised in their country.

The course is significantly different to a mainstream trampoline course as it is focused on using teaching techniques that are more accessible to people with disabilities. Therefore many more progressions and supporting techniques are used.
This course will equip you to enable your students with disabilities to continue their progression into trampolining; subject to their abilities.
It will also enable you to attract more people with disabilities into your club or centre.

Many trampoline coaches also use the techniques and additional progressions they learned from the Rebound Plus course when teaching their mainstream classes; particularly when teaching younger children.

 

The course comprises four steps:

1) Study of the reading material

2) Study of the video of practical aspects

3) Study of the progressions for key elements

4) Practical assessment by video. ((Candidates will be asked to get someone to film them on a mobile phone demonstrating the teaching points of key skills.) 

 

You may complete the programme as quickly or as slowly as you wish. Each time you complete one step, we will send you the next step.

When all steps are completed you will have completed the programme and we will send you your course completion certificate and validation number.

 

This is a distance learning programme and you have access to the office by email at any stage for advice and clarifications.

(This is the Level 3 certificate in Rebound Therapy.)


The cost of the online Rebound Plus course is £189 (plus vat if you are a UK citizen.)

FLEXI-BOUNCE THERAPY
(Practical and online versions)

 

FLEXI-BOUNCE THERAPY is the specific programme of use of an orthopaedic quality rebounder.
Currently, a common issue for many special needs schools and centres is that they can only provide Rebound Therapy sessions once or twice a week due to their number of students and only having one or two full sized trampolines. And during holiday times, sessions stop altogether. Some schools and centres are not able to provide Rebound Therapy at all because they do not have the budget or space for a full sized trampoline.

Flexi-Bounce Therapy is the solution to this dilemma and is the ideal complement to Rebound Therapy.
Flexi-Bounce Therapy can be provided on a daily basis in the classroom, or at home, in between the students' usual Rebound Therapy sessions.

VIEW A BRIEF INTRODUCTORY VIDEO HERE


There are two options for this course:


An In House one day workshop for schools who have a number of staff who require the training.

Contact info@reboundtherapy.org for more information about the in house workshop


or

 

An Online course for individuals and small groups.

GROW YOUR OWN COACHES PROGRAMME
Strategy for retaining members and developing coaches

Two of the most common challenges gymnastic and trampoline club owners will tell you they face are:
1) Recruiting coaches.
2) Keeping older members motivated and retaining them as they get older

ReboundTherapy.org in association with Gymnastic Britannia and Authority Sports UK have developed the 'Grow Your Own coaches™' programme to offer a solution to these challenges.
We have introduced a pathway of courses that gymnasts and prospective coaches can start taking from the age of 13. 
By encouraging your teenage members to enrol on the courses in this pathway, you can keep them motivated, retain them as members as they get older, and help them develop into your coaches for the future. 
As they work through the pathway, you give them the opportunity to gain recognised coaching certificates and to use their skills to help out in classes other than their own; maybe with the incentive of a small payment which would rise with each course taken.

This offers them a structured pathway to becoming a fully qualified, paid coach at the age of 18, and a valuable member of your club's team.

on the trampoline or rebounder (Online)


THIS IS an online CPD course in using the trampoline or rebounder for brain stimulation.

If you have ever wondered what you could offer your students during 'free time' on the trampoline, when they are not working on the development programme, this will be ideal for you, (and them.) It is a CPD add-on module for qualified Rebound Therapy practitioners, Flexi-Bounce Therapy practitioners, and those with a recognised trampoline coach qualification.
Pre-requisites for this course:
For trampoline, the candidate must have completed the accredited Rebound Therapy practitioner course if working with people with disabilities.
If working with mainstream students, either the Rebound Therapy practitioner certificate or a recognised trampoline coach certificate is necessary.
For rebounder, an orthopaedic quality rebounder is required (see www.Flexi-BounceTherapy.org for information on approved rebounders) and the candidate must have completed the Flexi-Bounce Therapy practitioner course.
