Basically, it helps you to work on the basics. Also with the foam pit you can get used to inverts. ('m just starting on those).
Do you have a local snowboard/skateboard training park? Or is it just a gymnastics center? What does tramp training cost (and entail)?

EDIT: Also, would they allow you to strap a skate deck on your feet and use that on the tramps?
