Over and above the unique health & fitness benefits rebounding, the programme have been designed to address many of the physical, intellectual, social and emotional needs in the healthy development of children including:
- Balance and coordination
- Focus and concentration
- Fine and gross motor skills
- Mid-line crossing awareness
- Spatial awareness
- Social and environmental awareness
- Confidence and self esteem
The magic of it all is that participants aren’t even aware that they are achieving these benefits – because they’re having SO MUCH FUN!
The program was originated and designed by ReboundSA, South Africa’s leading authorities on Rebounding. They are the original creators of themed rebounding “Journeys” and “Adventure” classes for children. They began working with classes and programs specifically for children in 2008, and developed unique and effective techniques to facilitate fun, safe and effective childrens rebounding classes, video’s and Instructor training courses.
The catchy sing-a-long songs were written by Keith and Justine McFarlane who’s songwriting background includes international publishing deals, hits in SA, Europe and the UK, and a SAMA award.

2. THE NOOBOUNCE SAFETY GUIDE (6min video)
An entertaining educational guide on safety – for children to watch before their first few sessions.
To the delight of the happy and responsive happy audience, Batty, a fluffy purple bat tries to read the safety guide, but without her glasses, she cannot read the script and gets most of it wrong.
The film director does his best to help her along, but eventually calls in Safebee to assist. The audience, SafeBee, and the director adore the fluffy old bat, and everyone joins in for Batty and SafeBee’s finale, the ABC safety song!
