Irish Student Trampoline Open 2021-RCC Fundraiser

The Irish Student Trampolining Open (ISTO) is an annual non-profit event run voluntarily by eight student and former student trampolinists from six universities across Ireland. Preparation begins in September and culminates in a 3 day competition held in April. The Irish Student Trampoline Open was established in 2001 and is now the largest trampolining competition in Ireland, and the largest student-run trampolining competition in Europe.

Between 500-600 competitors attended the competition yearly, alongside numerous volunteer judges, scorekeepers, marshals and competition organisers who helped to make the competition a great success. ISTO is attended annually by 40+ different student trampolining clubs, gaining interest nationally and internationally. Competitors at ISTO 2021 can compete in five events: Individual Trampoline (TRA), Synchronised trampoline (SYN), Double Mini Trampoline (DMT), Tumbling (TUM) and Display Cheerleading. The competition aims to include all ability levels, from beginners competing at novice level, to National-level Elite competitors.

Each year, ISTO selects a charity to fundraise for over the course of the year, this year we did a table knock out and the overall winner pick by you all was The Dublin Rape Crisis Center.All charity donations are nonrefundable for this fundraiser and will be donated to the DRCC at the end of the trampoline year.

The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre was set up in 1979 for the purpose of working to prevent the harm and heal the trauma of sexual violence. This national organisation works with men and women to prevent sexual violence and to eliminate its tolerance in society through education, training and awareness-raising campaigns. 

Their services include telephone counselling through a National 24 Hour Helpline, face to face counselling, training, outreach services, awareness raising, lobbying and accompaniment services. The RCC also act as advocates, on behalf of survivors of sexual violence to help ensure that they have access to responsive and sensitive services provided by law enforcement officials, medial personnel and the courts. 

They offer a safe and confidential space. In contact with clients, they keep the person at the centre and help empower the individual in all the work they do. 

If you are reading this passage and are affected by any of the issues, we encourage you to take the next steps and call the RCC helpline at 1800 77 888.
