Summer Safety: Be Safe on Your Trampoline This Summer

Trampolines are a backyard institution, and you’ll be hard pressed to find any kid who doesn’t enjoy spending some time bouncing around on one.  And while most of us have probably heard of some trampoline mishaps, the good news is that with some simple precautions, you shouldn’t have to stop the fun for a visit to the urgent care clinic.  Here are some summer safety tips when it comes to your trampoline:

During the set up, choose a level location that is not on any sort of hill or incline. Double check to make sure there are no obstacles or large rocks in the area.  Finally, follow the instructions carefully.

Before each use, check for any damage and make sure that no tree branches have grown over the trampoline that could accidentally be jumped into.

Before anyone uses the trampoline, make sure that they are wearing appropriate clothing that cannot be tripped over and that their pockets are empty.  All children should have adult supervision, and children under the age of six should not be using a full-size trampoline.  Lastly, pregnant women and people with medical conditions should check with their doctor before they use the trampoline.

During use, the most important thing is to never attempt any flips or jumps and never jump on to or off of the trampoline.  Always keep your bouncing low and aim for the center of the trampoline.

With these summer safety tips, you and your kids will enjoy using your trampoline for years to come.
