Bringing Aerial Sports to everyone
Aerial sports are sports with a complex aerial acrobatic component. Primarily, Aerial Sports Academy is focussed on trampolining, aerial skiing and diving. All of these sports are unique, yet they share the same biomechanical principles and share some common practices.
We work with all athletes, at all abilities and all levels, whether you are there to have fun, or to be an Olympic Champion.
AirSkills is our recreational program. It is fun, helping kids aged 6-12 build confidence and develop a healthy relationship with sport and physical activity. AirSkills is run in schools and local halls and gives kids a taste of aerial sports while they learn fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, landing and rolling.
We are partnered with the best trampoline and diving clubs in the state to provide competitive trampoline and diving classes.
Depending on your goals, these classes can help you win Olympic gold or they can simply be for recreation and leisure.
Trampoline and diving are not your main sport? Our supplementary programs are customised and personally tailored programs to help you achieve success in your sport. Perhaps you need a little more aerial awareness so that you can backflip your bmx or perhaps you just need to learn how to jump higher and avoid landing injuries such as ACL's and ankle sprians.
For all coaching enquiries, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
What is AirSkills?
We have partnered with TriSkills Australia to bring an after school program called AirSkills.
