For Double Dutch specifics, the Jump2BFit Double Dutch Program supports greater challenges and learning using ropes all the way up to 36 ft.
For Coaches and Trainers:
JumpFit is a jump rope only workout program that will enhance anyone’s cardiovascular program.
To start a team or jump rope club, first decide on the ropes and instructional/coaching materials you will need. Ropes can be ordered with quantity discounts in lengths from 6ft to 36ft.
Start with a few dozen single speed ropes in a variety of lengths. Speed style jump ropes are an ideal starting point as they are least costly and light weight. If you plan to include double dutch, we suggest ordering either the Beaded or Cloth style ropes. They are best for teaching skills and for beginners to control when turning. The sound of the rope hitting the ground also assists new jumpers.
Our Jump2bFit® Rope Skipping Fitness and Activity Program will be perfect for your jump rope club or team teaching and coaching needs with sections on skills (single rope, long rope and double dutch for individuals, pairs and groups), club practices, routine choreography, competition rules, performing for audiences and much more. Learn more about the Jump2bFit® Program.
It is very easy to start a jump rope club or team because the skills are easy to learn and to teach. You do not need a highly specialized or qualified instructor. Many excellent teams and clubs are coached by an interested teacher, parent or other adult who had a group of kids, a place to practice and some basic equipment and teaching information. Many nationally and internationally competitive teams simply started with the types of skills found in Jump2BFit to start, then building on the basics!
