At trampolining competitions, gymnasts compete two routines with ten skills each. For double mini-trampoline (DMT), gymnasts compete four passes, performing one skill on the DMT and one dismount skill onto a matted landing area. The routines and passes are marked by a judging panel, and the scores added together to form the total mark in each discipline.
For many of the children, it was their first competition. For others it was a chance to compete at a higher grade.
