Participants in the senior level trampoline competition at both the 2016 Winter Classic and the U.S. Elite Challenge were eligible to earn Olympic Selection Points based on performances. Gymnasts needed to finish in the top three and meet a minimum score. At the Winter Classic, the top three finishers needed to earn a combined preliminary round score (two routines: voluntary and optional) of at least 103.0 for men and 95.0 for women. At the Elite Classic, the top three had to have a combined three-routine score (preliminary voluntary and optional, and the finals optional) of at least 159.0 for men and 147.0 for women.
The Olympic Selection Points will be added to the three-routine total score (two preliminary and one final) earned at the 2016 USA Gymnastics Championships, the national championships for trampoline and tumbling, and acrobatic and rhythmic gymnastics that serve as the Olympic selection event for trampoline and rhythmic gymnastics. The male and female trampoline gymnasts with the highest total score (three-routine total and Olympic Selection Points) will be nominated to the U.S. Olympic Trampoline Team, pending approval by the United States Olympic Committee.
