Welcome to Stoke Elite Trampolining Club
Stoke Elite Trampoline Club is home to recreational through to youth International trampolinists. The club is based in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire.
Stoke Elite Trampoline Club was formed in 2009 from City of Stoke Trampoline Club to originally cater for just elite/competitive trampoline gymnasts, however the club has expanded and now caters for all ages and abilities. The club is run by a dedicated team of volunteers and coaches. We are the only club within Staffordshire to cater from recreational through to International standard, and have many of the highest qualified coaches within the area.
The club has produced various National School Champions (Team and Individual) British College Champions, Regional Individual and Team Champions, NDP National Age Group Champions and qualifiers for the British Trampoline Championships. An example of some basic moves from competition routines may be found in the following video

In 2011, the club was awarded GymMark accreditation for excellent work in development, training and events programmes, duty of care and child protection, sports equity, ethics and administration. Accreditation is British Gymnastics? endorsement of a quality run gymnastics club. Parents/Carers of children who are members of a GymMark club can feel confident that their children are enjoying gymnastics in a "safe, effective and child-friendly"environment.
Joint head coach Louise has been involved in trampolining for over 20 years, firstly as a competitor and now as a high performance coach and has developed gymnasts to a youth International standard. She is assisted by Kate Lawton who is also a joint head coach, is also a high performance coach in addition to being a British Gymnastics Performance Pathway coach. Kate was a trampoline gymnast at National Level before devoting her time to coaching. Both Louise & Kate mentor a number of more junior coaches many of whom are current competitors as well. The coaches are primarily responsible for recreational through to National standard gymnasts and also guide the assistant coaches.
All trampoline gymnasts within the club are placed into an appropriate class and with an appropriately trained coach. At a recreational standard all gymnasts will complete British Gymnastics award schemes and upon completion of award ten will be offered the opportunity to compete for the club.
