Australian National Rope Skipping Championships

When 9 Jun, 2018 9:00am — 11 Jun, 2018 2:00pm Where AIS Arena, Leverrier Street, Bruce
Canberra’s own Jazzy Jumpers are co-hosting this year's National Championship with Skipping Australia at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) on Saturday 9, Sunday 10 and Monday 11 June. We have over 300+ skippers and officials from around Australia coming to Canberra for three days of furious action with Jazzy Jumpers accounting for 44 of the total competitors.

Skipping is a sport that seamlessly combines skills that most athletes strive to master in one sport and has to be seen to be believed. Competitive events range from single speed and freestyle events, to pairs and teams speed and freestyle events as well as double dutch. Competitors require strength and endurance to compete in speed events yet also require flexibility and rhythm for freestyle events. Competitors range from ages 5 - 18+ years.

Australia is one of over 60 countries worldwide that actively participate in the sport of Rope Skipping. Skipping Australia is the National body representing skippers and is very proud to be supporting one of Australia’s newest and most exciting spectator sports.

At the International level, the Global Association of International Sports Federation (GAISF; formerly Sport Accord) has recently awarded Observer Status membership to the sport of skipping or “jump rope”. This is the first step in taking the sport to the Olympics with the sport now being part of the Olympic family!

This year, Jazzy Jumpers have a team of 18 athletes heading to Orlando, Florida to represent Canberra on the World Stage at the World Jump Rope Championships over the period 1 – 10 July 2018. In addition to these athletes, Jazzy Jumpers has a further 5 athletes who have qualified for the Australian Team and are heading to the FISAC World Rope Skipping Championships in Shanghai in late July 18. The competitors are heavy into their training and in good form to perform well at Nationals.

We look forward to seeing you there!
