The Rapid City Sports Commission will host the 2025 United States Tumbling and Trampoline National Championships with more than 300 athletes expected to compete.
Trampoline is part of the gymnastics discipline that will compete in the 2024 Olympic Summer Games in Paris. The 2025 national championships will be from June 15-21, 2025.
“This is the first national championship win since the commission was formed,” said Domico Rodriguez, executive director at Rapid City Sports Commission. “We have big goals for Rapid City and look forward to seeing how we continue to grow this sector of our tourism economy.”
The Rapid City Sports Commission was formed in October 2022 to drive year-round events to the South Dakota destination and increase tourism to the region. Rodriguez was named as executive director two months later in December 2022.
The event will bring 2,000 room nights to Rapid City hotels with an estimated economic impact of more than $1 million. This will be the third time the United States Tumbling and Trampoline National Championships will take place in Rapid City, as the destination also hosted the event in 2005 and 2015 at the Barnett Area in The Monument.
“Having events of this stature in Rapid City will open the door for other gymnastic and national-caliber events,” Rodriguez said. “We look forward to continuing to see the positive role sporting events will have on Rapid City, our economy and way of life.”
