Our injury rate is 0.2%. This means 2 out of every 1,000 trampoline jumpers will get some type of injury. We count all injuries, even if we just hand out an ice pack. The vast majority of these injuries are minor. Very few are serious.
In order to understand the level of our injury rate, there must be a comparison to other physical activities that kids do on a regular basis. Below is a chart comparing our facility to other sports*.
Sport Injury Rate % Injuries/1,000
Baseball 1.7% 17
Softball 1.0% 10
Soccer 2.1% 21
Football 1.5% 15
Xtreme Trampolines 0.2% 2
