Scottish Student Trampolining (SST) is one of the most rapidly growing and popular SSS sports!
The Scottish Student Trampoline Open is the flagship event of the Scottish Student Games with over 500 students competing from across the UK and Ireland.
Throughout the year there are four league competitions with the 3rd competition each year being the Scottish Student Trampoline Open (SSTO). Competitions take place on Saturdays with SSTO being a weekend-long competition. There are nine universities within Scotland that offer trampolining; Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian, Robert Gordon University, St Andrews, Stirling and Strathclyde. Additionally, students from England, Ireland and Wales are invited to participate in our competitions too.
At SST competitions, there are six levels to compete at, ranging from novice to pro-elite. Trampolining in SST is judged on three things: execution, difficulty and horizontal displacement. However, BUCS competitions also include time of flight.

I’m currently going into my fourth year of studying Primary Education at the University of Glasgow. During my time there I’ve been Social Secretary, Club Secretary and Captain of GUTC and have got a great feel for what goes on behind the scenes of Trampoline competitions. My previous working roles have also included: disability multi-sports coach, dance teacher, netball coach, summer school counsellor and nursery teacher.
This year I’m looking forward to introducing a disability category to the SST leagues, as well as bringing SSTO back with a bang for the first time since 2020! As a queer, non-binary person I also hope to be a role model for the promotion and inclusion of LGBTQIA+ people in sport.
One of the biggest goals for SST this year is to continue to help clubs get back on their feet after the COVID-19 pandemic by running and promoting as many judging and coaching courses as possible. Alongside this, we also want a full return to leagues including our amazing Bouncy Ball after the final comp. Finally, I’d like to promote a bigger and better showing of Team Scotland at BUCS this coming year!
