Trampolines and Fun!

Do you have a trampoline in your backyard?  Or do one of your neighbors or friends have a trampoline?  If so, do your children  love to bounce on it?  Since spring is coming,  I thought you might like to know some interesting things about trampolines:

  • the most injuries occur when jumping more than one on a trampoline.  that is caused by losing their balance and falling ON the trampoline.  The rebound snaps the body and can cause very serious injuries
  • if children cannot do a 3/4 drop, they cannot probably do a safe “flip”.  If you have never heard of a 3/4 drop, you are not alone.  Just give the Horizon office a call at 616-669-7722 and we will explain.
  • check your backyard homeowners policy.  most do not cover backyard trampolines.

Trampolines can be a ton of fun with  the correct supervision (make sure a mom or dad is out there keeping tabs :)) and the above tips are in place.

Have a great, fun day!
