New Zealand’s ONLY safety certified Trampoline Park!
JUMP Avondale is proud to be the only indoor trampoline park company in New Zealand that is safety certified by the International Association of Trampoline Parks (IATP) and Australian Trampoline Parks Association (ATPA).
Our parks are independently audited annually by representatives of the IATP and the ATPA.
JUMP invests in the safety of our customers and the general public, our park is independently audited annually by representatives of the IATP and the ATPA from Australia. To comply to this certification we have to prove our equipment is to the ASTM standards of testing and measuring by not only having the correct frame height from the ground, safety nets under ALL of our trampolines and the padding is durable and a certified thickness to sustain any impact, to name a few measures we take, we also have to provide the testing documents to prove this.
Safety is our #1 priority!
JUMPing on a trampoline is an inherently dangerous activity and can be categorised as an action or extreme sport. It is important for participants to follow set rules, safety guidelines and to JUMP within their own ability.
At JUMP we want all our JUMPers to leave our building happy and with exciting stories to share with their friends. Because of this, we have gone to great lengths to reduce or eliminate some of the hazards associated with trampolines and are continually working to ensure a safe environment through superior structure, staff training, research, education and planning.
We realise that there are quite a few rules, but these are designed to minimise the risk of injury to yourself and others, so we have displayed these at the entrance to the trampolines and around the park. Prior to your session time you will be given a compulsory safety briefing from our trained court monitors outlining these rules and guidelines to make sure all JUMPers can have the most fun possible whilst practising JUMP safety standards.
Safety is our number one priority so please ensure you always:
- Follow our rules
- Watch out for other JUMPers
- JUMP within your skill level
JUMP staff will be enforcing our rules so please read and follow them as staff reserve the right to remove guests from further JUMPing in our facility if they are acting in a way that may endanger themselves or others.
All of our equipment is designed and tested under IATP (International Association of Trampoline Parks) safety standards. We have gone to great lengths to reduce or eliminate some of the hazards associated with trampolines. JUMP trampoline parks are very safe and inclusive for all ages. Not only is the equipment specially designed and tested, our court monitors who are also trained are monitoring each area to ensure our customers and enjoying the benefits of the trampolines while still safely jumping within our guidelines.
Staff members perform daily equipment and maintenance checks to ensure all equipment is functioning properly and is in suitable working order. Our trampolines have no gaps to fall through, nor are there any exposed springs or steel. All steel and springs are covered by several inches of resistant certified padding and every trampoline has a safety net underneath if there was to ever be an incident where a trampoline was to split. No other trampoline parks in New Zealand follow these safety guidelines. Public safety is paramount.
While we do absolutely everything we can to prevent injury by providing a compulsory safety briefing prior to each session and having active court monitors stationed at different areas of the park ensuring everyone is following our rules and guidelines. Sometimes accidents can still happen, we go to great lengths to be prepared to respond quickly and continuously train our staff on safety procedures, at least 50% of our staff on any given shift, are qualified in First Aid management.
We’re extremely proud of our staff at JUMP Avondale. Our employees are dedicated to your safety and to providing professional customer service and attention. You’ll find there’s much more to our staff than friendly faces. An ability to enforce our safety rules is a prerequisite to employment.
JUMP is also proud of our injury rate. Having to record every incident, even the ‘magic ice’ moments and with over a hundred thousand customers each year we hold an impressive 0.45% injury rate. That is less than half a percent! This is because we care and we reinvest into our maintenance programme for the safety of our customers.
Our terms and conditions outline these risks and anyone using the trampolines at JUMP is deemed to have accepted these conditions prior to JUMPing.
