SKIPPING

Promoting active lifestyles. Skipping is a great way to stay fit and have fun. These programs will introduce youth to the various techniques of skipping – single rope, long rope and double dutch – following the CanSkip Badge program for both Individual and Team skills.

 

Connectivity Skippers are a registered jump rope club with both RSC (Rope Skipping Canada) and RSA (Rope Skipping Alberta Association) at both the Recreational and Competitive levels.

 

The CDL Skipping program runs September to June and concludes with a group performance in the CDL Year End Showcase at the Maclab Centre for the Performing Arts in Leduc.

SKIPPING PROGRAM INFORMATION

  • ALL SKIPPING PROGRAM classes  are designed on a combination of age and experience.  If instructors feel that a skipper is either surpassing peers in areas of technique or are not yet able to achieve the required skills, the instructor may recommend the skipper try a more suitable class or increased training hours.
  •  Advancement to “Competitive” within the program is possible after the first year. If wanting to compete, skippers must notify their coach so proper skills assessments may be completed.
