Many kids like jumping and doing tricks on a trampoline in their backyard, but how about in a warehouse full of the springy toys where you can literally bounce off the walls? Nation wide Sky High Sports recently opened its newest family friendly gym right here in Naperville.
“This is nothing like I’ve ever seen before, said Brianna Clark, Operations Manager, Sky High Sports. “To have kids come in and literally bounce off the walls kind of excited me.”
“I loved growing up with trampolines,” said Greg Forster, Naperville resident. “It was really, really fun, and when I heard about a warehouse full of trampolines with walls and everything I got so excited.”
Sky High has a main trampoline, a foam pit to practice your tricks before trying them out on the springs, a kiddie area for youngsters who are worried about getting bounced around, a private jumping area for parties, and perhaps the most popular spot, a dodgeball court.
“They get so into it and so excited,” said Clark. “The little kids love when they can throw a ball and tag out the big kids.”
“I love playing dodgeball. You get to jump around on trampolines and pretty much just get some air,” said Forster.
“Everybody knows how to play dodgeball, everybody likes throwing balls at other people,” said Ed Schultz, Regional Director, Sky High Sports.
11-year-old Megan Campbell thought the bouncy fun sounded like a great place for her and her friends to play and decided to have her birthday party at Sky High.
“I like how you can jump on trampolines and you can jump with all your friends because most trampolines you can only have three or four people on at a time,” said Campbell.
Whether you just want to jump around or show off some skills, jumping for even 15 minutes can be a great workout and tire out even the most energetic kid.
“A lot of kids right now sit in front of the computer, they sit in front of the electronics,” said Schultz. “This is a great way for them to get exercise and they don’t even know they’re doing it.”
Sky High Sports is now open for business. They will soon be offering an AIRobics class and a dodgeball league.
