About Rope Skipping
Rope Skipping (British English), or Jump rope (American English), is a creative and fun physical activity enjoyed by children and adults alike. One or more participants jump over a rope swung so that it passes under their feet and over their heads. This may consist of one participant turning and jumping the rope on their own (Single Rope), or three or more participants taking turns jumping and turning a variety of ropes (Long Rope, Double Dutch and Partner Skipping).
Rope Skipping Canada supports all forms of rope skipping. From recreational programs to high-performance competitive teams, we are here to offer world-leading program support to all of our members.
