From the Author
This jump rope program became an instant hit for the students in my school district. It was not enough for students to work on their jump rope skills during their PE classes. The students came in droves to work on their skills during recess time and after/before school. My Principal even commented on the great excitement that was caused throughout the whole school by this program!
