How old must my child be to participate?
Our jump rope program is customized for children in grades 1 - 6. We welcome kindergarten students at our jump rope workshops and holiday camp, as well as at most of our after school jump rope classes later in the school year.
What should my child wear?
Children should wear shorts and a t-shirt or other similar comfortable clothing. (Long pants, long shorts, skirts and "skorts" can pose a problem as jump ropes will frequently catch on the hem of these items.) Also, the right footwear is really important, not just for comfort, but for safety.
Children should wear supportive athletic shoes (and socks!!!) with laces tied appropriately tight for good foot and ankle support.
Do I need to purchase a jump rope or can my child use their own rope?
Students may use their own jump ropes.
NOTE: Ropes will also be available to borrow and/or purchase.
Is food or water provided?
We do not provide snacks or lunches for students who participate in our jump rope classes or camps, as many families are dealing with food allergies. For the after-school classes, please send your child with a snack to eat prior to the start of class, as they will need fuel for jumping rope. (They should bring water too, if there is no water fountain in the gym where we are teaching.)
For our jump rope workshops and camps, children will bring their own snacks AND a lunch.
NOTE: If your child has a life threatening allergy, please be sure and notify us at the time of registration so we can work with you to help ensure his/her safety.
Are scholarships available?
Sometimes scholarships are available through the PTA at the schools where we teach. If not, depending on the number of students we have registered for each class, workshop or camp, we can offer a limited number of partial scholarships. To inquire, please contact us.
Can I get a refund if I need to cancel?
Full refunds, less a $12 registration fee, will be issued if notice of cancellation is received prior to the start of the jump rope program your child is signed up for. Partial refunds will be issued on a case by case basis in the event of an emergency related to an injury or extended illness. However, once the program is underway, no refunds will be issued. Please contact us if you have further questions regarding the cancellation refund policy.
What happens if school is cancelled due to snow?
If there is a school closure that cancels after school activities in your district due to weather or other circumstances, there will be no jump rope class that day. Since we are not able to extend the sessions to make up missed classes, you will be issued a coupon to apply to a future class, camp or workshop.
