Key Information

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.
