What a Great Weekend!

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the 2012 Rope Skipping Canada National Championships! We had a great event with some big speed scores, fantastic freestyle routines, and a whole lot of fun! Thank you to all of the tournament organizers, volunteers and sponsors! Thank you to the International Demo Team (L to R: Wouter Tack, Monica Harlow, Sebastien Deeg, Vivien Vajda, Sam Ashley, Sarah Dobrowolski and Willem Tack) for their help promoting rope skipping throughout Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and performing at the Opening Ceremonies. Most of all, thank you to all of the athletes for making Nationals one of the best championships we have ever had!
Results, photos, videos and other information will be coming out over the next few weeks so please check back often for new items!

Jump Anywhere!

Rope skipping isn't just for gymnasiums! One of the beautiful things about rope skipping is that you don't need anything more than yourself and a rope. No fancy facility or equipment necessary, shoes are even optional! Check out this great video from some jumpers on their trip to Hong Kong!
