Program Details

CanJump Steps 5 - 8 - LTAD 2

The CanJump program allows athletes to further develop their skills in trampoline and tumbling. Each step teaches more advanced skills. These 12 steps help athletes develop flexibility, courage, strength, technique and landings in a safe environment. 

CanJump Steps 5 - 8 is a one and a half hour class that introduces participants to twisting on the trampoline, where they will learn swivel hips, airplanes and rollers. Participants will also be introduced to some more advanced tumbling as they work on round-offs and progressions for forwards and backwards handsprings as well as front saltos. This is a class for anyone who has experience in gymnastics and is comfortable jumping and landing on a trampoline in various body positions and has completed steps 3 & 4.

Step 5: Athletes will learn combination tumbling on floor, front tuck mounts and baranis on double mini-trampoline and cradles, front tucks and full twisting back drops on trampoline. Strength conditioning is also introduced at the this level.  

Step 6: Athletes will learn front handsprings, roundoff back handspring series on floor, front and back tuck combinations on double mini-trampoline and corkscrews, back tucks and porpoise on trampoline. 

Step 7: - Athletes will learn skills such as front tucks onto mats, front pikes, baranis, forward handsprings, back tucks on floor and more advanced transitional skills. Conditioning is an integral part of this program. 

Step 8: - Athletes will learn tumbling series with saltos both front and back, back full twist and rudy off double mini-tramp and optional routines with saltos on trampoline. Conditioning is an integral part of this program. 

*Steps 5 - 8 are part of the same class. While the athlete can advance faster in one discipline than another, all compulsory skills must be completed in this tier to advance to step 8 and beyond.

CanJump is Canada’s recreational development program for trampoline and tumbling. Trampoline and Tumbling (T&T) consists of 3 disciplines; Trampoline, Double mini-trampoline (DMT) and Tumbling. CanJump was designed to cover the basics of the sport.

CanJump is a safe, fun, and motivational program that allows participants to track their progress throughout their classes. It is comprised of 12 different levels. It is an individually paced program. That means no pass or fail!

Program is broken down into tiers:

  • Steps 1 & 2: Focus on basic development – LTAD2 (ages 6-12)
  • Steps 3 & 4: Focus on skill acquisition – LTAD2 (ages 8+)
  • Steps 5 - 8: Focus on combinations of skills & mastering of skills- LTAD3 (ages 8+)

In order to progress to the next tier, all compulsory skills must be achieved. For example, in order to advance to Steps 9+, all skills must be successfully completed in steps 1-8.

Gymnastics is a fun-filled, non-contact activity through which children can develop self-confidence, experience a wide variety of challenges and opportunity for social interaction.
Gymnastics helps develop physical literacy in children. The development of these physical tools are needed to take part in activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. You’re never too young to gain something positive from the sport of gymnastics.
For full details on Long Term Athlete Development refer to Gymnastics Canada website. We have selected a highlight from each stage.
