Coaching Staff at a glance......
The coaching staff is a combination of adult and youth leaders. Our coaching staff goals are to help each jumper to learn teamwork, leadership, fellowship, and how to deal with defeat and success, while building on valuable life skills through all levels of participation within the team and the sport of jump rope. We provide a support structure in which jumpers can reach their competitive, performing, and teaching potential at all levels while growing physically, mentally, and spiritually through character building and community involvement in a positive environment.
