Questions About the Camp

What will I learn?

All key disciplines of rope skipping will be covered during the training sessions, including Single Rope (manipulation, power, multiples, pairs interaction, speed), Double Dutch (single, pairs, triad, speed), Chinese Wheels, DDC (turning, dancing), and Gymnastics. There will also be choreography workshops throughout the week.

Will this camp help me get better at competitions?

Yes! This camp will help you learn new skills which you can use at competitions. On top of the skipping skills, you’ll also participate in a workshop with our professional choreographer which will help you make your skipping routines even more visual and engaging.

Will we do anything else besides skipping?

Of course! Besides the skipping training sessions in the mornings and afternoons, you can also participate in a choreography workshop and we’ve also planned some other exciting stuff for some of the evenings where you can have fun, unwind and build relationships. In the evenings we’ll be running an obstacle course, scavenger hunt and we’ll also be taking you to a trampoline park.  On the last night we’ll also be having a disco!

How experienced are the trainers?

Very experienced! The trainers that we’re inviting are some of the top skipping athletes in the world. They have vast amounts of experience, including being on stage and on TV.  They’re all looking forward to teaching you what they know so you can take your skipping skills to the next level.

Will I make lots of friends?

Yes! We’ll have participants coming from all over the world, so we’re sure that you’ll make new friends. Some of the activities you’ll be doing will also involve teamwork with other participants which will help you build friendships. You never know, some of these friendships may even last a lifetime.

What do I need to bring with me?

You’ll need to bring some comfortable training clothing and shoes for the skipping sessions and for some of the evening activities. Don’t forget to bring your jump ropes (speed and freestyle) for the training sessions and if you come as a team, please also bring double dutch ropes.

For the disco on the final night, you might want to bring some nice clothing 🙂

Finally, all catering and accommodation will be provided but if you want to go out to explore the town or buy something in a local shop, please make sure you bring some spending money as well.
