We are very excited to be kicking off 2014 with our first big event of the year: the Jump Rope Competition! It will be held this Saturday, January 25th at the Pleasanton Studio from 11am to 1pm. We will be accepting forms until Friday, so there's still time to practice and enter the competition! Continue reading for more information about this weekend.

Time: 11am - 1pm

Students will be placed in divisions according to age and will be given a time limit based on these divisions. The competitor with the highest number of jumps in a division will be awarded first place. If a student stumbles or stops jumping and starts again, the judges will continue counting the jumps, but the time will not stop. The score is based on how many jumps can be accomplished in a given amount of time.
After all competitors go up once, they will all be given a chance to beat the front-runner's score within that division. If after this second round, no students beat the front-runner, then that student will take first place without having to go a second round. If the leader is passed, then he/she will go for a second round to be given a chance to beat the new leading score. The highest score after this will be awarded first place.
Little Tigers have the option of spinning the ropes themselves or having the rope spun for them by the masters and instructors. All other students must spin their own ropes.
Students may bring their own jump ropes if they prefer. Otherwise, we will provide ropes for competitors.
Students are not required to come in their uniforms. We encourage students to come in something they are comfortable in to maximize their performance. For students who do wish to wear their uniforms, we actually recommend that they do not compete in their belts, as they often fall off after several jumps and become obstacles.
