Rope Skipping

Description of CCA

Skipping is an activity not only suited for competition or recreation but also for a cardiovascular workout, similar to jogging or bicycle riding. Pupils in the skipping CCA compete in individual and team events using single ropes or double Dutch. In freestyle routines, jumpers have a set time limit to demonstrate a combination of skills in four categories- footwork, strength, multiple unders and rope manipulations; in many competitions these are choreographed to music. During the speed events, athletes try to complete as many jumps as possible within a particular amount of time. Skipping builds up the pupils’ perseverance and confidence.
