Competitive jump rope is a fast-paced, dynamic, and engaging sport that emerged in Canada over thirty years ago. Individuals and teams compete in a variety of speed and freestyle events using both single and double dutch ropes. In order to excel in jump rope athletes must demonstrate speed, power, endurance, creativity, and strength skills. Athletes compete at the Regional, Provincial, National, and International level. Currently there are over twenty countries involved in the sport and we are working towards inclusion in the Olympics.
