Jump Energy in Labrador!

Jump Energy had a blast at the Sheshatshiu Innu School in Sheshatshiu, Labrador. The team put on a great show and workshop for all of the students and everyone had a wonderful time. Hopefully the trip started the ball rolling and we'll see some more jump rope coming out of Newfoundland and Labrador! Check out the photos below!

Putting on a Good Show!

Competing is great, but performing for an audience is also a very important part of rope skipping. It allows jumpers to go beyond the confines of the rules and guidelines of competition, and really showcase our sport's limitless possibilities. The Comet Skippers of Mason, Ohio, can certainly put on a show! With guest jumpers from Belgium, Germany, France, and all across the USA, sit back and enjoy!
