The Calgary Skip Squad is a not-for-profit jump rope club in Calgary Alberta.
All of our competitive skippers, coaches, and volunteers have many years of experience in the sport. Our rope skipping team is comprised of competitive skippers ages six and older from all over Calgary and surrounding areas.
Calgary Skip Squad competitive team meets twice a week for practices to have fun while learning skills, promoting teamwork, physical fitness, and much more!
We also offer non-competitive skipping lessons for children ages six and older. Our recreational skippers practice once per week. This program helps to develop flexibility, balance, coordination, tones muscle, speed and endurance, which provide the foundation for all physical activities, sports and school.
Why Join Our Skipping Club?
Skipping is Fun
A simple piece of rope can be so much fun. Just turn the rope and skip it. This childhood pastime is in fact an invaluable whole-body cardio exercise. But you’ll see that as soon as you discover the rope again, you’ll probably stop looking for lame excuses, because it really is fun. 🙂
Being apart of a team teaches kids many valuable lessons in life. Your teammates support you through your sport, in the classroom, and in your personal life. Research is finding that team sports boost mental health, gratitude strengthens relationships, and positivity trumps negativity.
Affordable & Available
With over half of North America’s adolescents being physically unfit, finding a fun yet affordable sport has never been more important. Besides a decent pair of running shoes, a jump rope will cost you less than a Starbucks. You can take that jump rope almost anywhere you want.
Calgary Skip Squad is a proud member of Sport Calgary. We believe in respect in sport, promoting amateur sport, and helping our athletes grow and improve.
