Jerry Raymond, owner of Sky High Sports, is the father of a son with Asperger’s.

He’s found that there aren’t many places for families like his to enjoy active fun, so he began a program of regular monthly jump sessions to fill a need for families like his own.

“No one will wonder why your child “plays differently.  Plus, experts agree that jumping is great exercise and helps with motor skills development, confidence and socialization,” Raymond says.

On any typical day, the atmosphere of Sky High’s enormous trampoline center might be overwhelming for children with special needs.

So, once a month, Sky High turns off the music, dials down the distractions and limits attendance for the comfort of our special guests.

One of the many trampoline courts is designated especially “quiet” for children with sensory disorders or physical impairments.
