Rec Skipping Lessons

Ready to Jump? Learn to Skip with Calgary Skip Squad!

The Calgary Skip Squad recreational skipping program is a non-competitive jump rope program for children 6 years old and up. Our jump rope classes give the kids opportunities to learn jump rope skills with single ropes as well at double dutch. The program is designed to help children develop a foundation for all physical fitness activities by improving such things as balance, co-ordination, flexibility all in a fun, non-competitive environment.

The program is taught voluntarily by members of the Calgary Skip Squad Competitive Jump Rope Team who want to help kids learn to skip and give back to their sport. We also follow the CANSkip model.  CANSkip is Canada’s national rope skipping skill development program. The program consists of 12 levels of single rope and long rope/double dutch.

Rec Skipping Classes

Each rec skipping program includes 1 hour of jump rope instruction per week as well as a skipping rope.  The goal of the recreational program is to provide a fun and relaxed, yet safe and healthy, non-competitive and recreational environment for all.
