RECREATIONAL Jump Rope
Jump Rope - Recreational Level
Join in for 45 minutes of fun learning agility skills with a jump rope and games with friends in the long rope. This class is highly interactive, full of heart pumping exercise and engages our jumpers to develop fast twitch muscles for future athletic endeavours.
Jump Rope - Pre-Competitive Level
Join us one night a week to train at a challenging level to help you decide if you wish to join our competitive team. Train individually and with other jumpers to learn speed, double unders, freestyle, double dutch and more. This program gives you a chance to experience the competitive program without any pressure.
Jump Rope is fun!
There is nothing better than jumping rope to get your heart rate up and increase muscle strength and coordination.
Skipping is an activity fun for kids and adults, athletes and non-athletes alike. Not only is skipping fun, it's also an excellent calorie burner, increases bone density, builds agility and improves your brain function! It's a great training method for many other sports, from football to swimming, too.
At JDFA, you don't need any experience or athletic ability to start skipping with us! Give jump rope a try -- you might just love it!
COMPETITIVE Jump Rope Team
We want you! We are going into our 8th season as the only competitive jump rope team in Halton!
Come and be a part of our team. All you need is enthusiam and the desire to practice. Our competitive jump rope team will meet two times a week to practice various skills to prepare for two annual rope skipping competitions and also optionally to compete at the National or World level.
We will work individually, with partners, in small groups and large teams to create competitive entries for The Ontario Skipping Organization competitions along with Rope Skipping Canada Nationals Competition. We are looking forward to participating at the world level with International Jump Rope Union (IJRU) in the future for our elite athletes.
This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who wants to get active and work with a team. We have a lot of fun and love working together to accomplish jump rope routines that perform to impress.
Practices are held two - three times a week.
SKIPPING IS GOOD FOR YOU!
Skipping is not just good for your body but for your mind too! It's a great way to get fit and improve your overall health. Here are a few key benefits of jumping rope:
It's about the best calorie burning exercise out there
Increase Bone Density
Science suggests that jumping rope is one of the best methods of building bone density!
Build Agility & Quickness
Skipping rope improves your balance and quickness by making your mind focus on your feet for sustained periods of time. You become more agile and coordinated over time and your balance improves too.
Improve Your Brain
We all know that exercise is good for our brain but it turns out that exercise that involves the brain and body (like ballroom dancing or jumping rope) is even better than exercise alone!
