International Association of Trampoline Parks (IATP) Statement on Canadian Trampoline Park Incident

EDMONTON, Alberta - Jan. 19, 2017 - PRLog -- The IATP agrees that trampoline jumping is best enjoyed when appropriate safety measures are in place. We advocate a risk management plan including supervision and protective padding adequate for the facility and activities that are offered. In addition, the IATP supports the ASTM International Standard and the BSI Standard for Trampoline Courts which includes: rigorous manufacturing and design criteria, monitoring courts, redundant netting, training and providing patron education.

We believe that the positives of youth recreational sports far outweigh the negatives and we are actively engaged in programs aimed at promoting the safety and well-being of patrons who visit our member parks.

The IATP encourages and supports more investigation into strategies to prevent injury, not just at trampoline parks, but also at home where guidelines for trampolines are neither as rigid nor effective as those in parks where activities are organized and supervised.

Founded in 2012, the International Association of Trampoline Parks (IATP) is dedicated to serving the interests of its membership and educating the trampoline park industry by promoting optimally safe operations, facilitating commercial success and stimulating growth of the trampoline park industry. The IATP is the trampoline park industry's most ardent safety and injury prevention advocate.  We closely monitor sports medicine, fitness and injury reporting and use it in a deliberate approach to the development of consensus safety standards for our members and for our industry.

The IATP has released the following statement to local and national media outlets:

IATP conducts Winter Planning Meeting
The International Association of Trampoline Parks (IATP) held its Winter Planning Meeting on Feb. 11 in New Orleans at the Double Tree Hotel. The IATP Board of Directors and committee chairs discussed goals, accomplishments, and plans for the future. Committee reports addressed membership, certification, standards, insurance, facility operations, government relations, and more.

Board member Ed Reed of Jumpstreet, said, "Part of the growth and success of IATP is due to the diversity of the Board of Directors, which represents large franchise groups all the way down to single park owners. All have a willingness to share their successes and failures; it's a very together group."

Dian Nissen of Nissen Trampoline Academy, whose father, George, invented the trampoline, said, "Our primary concern is creating safety training and certification that is consistent throughout the industry. I want to see trampoline parks thrive. The association helps guide people in the industry; the purpose is education for everyone involved: park owners, operators, and vendors. I hope more join the association, which brings us all together and promotes awareness of the industry." The IATP Annual Conference and Trade Show will be held Sept. 13-15 at the Sheraton Music City in Nashville, Tenn. For more information, visit (www.indoortrampolineparks.org).
