Saturday Hillcrest High School hosted a region 12 USA Jump Rope Competition. This competition is the qualifying event for the national competition in long beach, california. Summer Joy stopped by to see what she could learn.
Attending teams are from Idaho, Utah and Montana. Many of these kids have been training for their performances for over a year and now they'll find out if they have what it takes to make it to nationals.
This event featured double-dutch pair and many other exciting jumping techniques. Pro-form airbone is in its 25th year and is coached by monica foster and melinda andrus. The team travels around the region performing at school assemblies while promoting a healthy life style and encouraging kids to stay away from alcohol and tobacco.
"I think the most important thing is that they develope great friendships with teams from all over the region. We have a great time meeting these guys and working together; even though we are competing, it's a big jumprope family. It's a great way to stay fit and healthy and also have a great time doing it. These kids enjoy what they do!"
Jump roping classes are available for all ages of kids and Proform Airbourne offers a free clinic every monday at four PM at Ammon Elementary and in Sugar City at Central Elementary.
