Though the workshop is designed to promote the physical activity and sport of jump rope through the teaching of skills, it has turned into so much more. Perhaps the most significant outgrowth of the NC Rope Skipping Workshop has been the many relationships that have been formed among participants, spectators and supporters of jump rope. In jump rope, the community of jumpers is known for the exchange of pins, a symbol of unity and camaraderie. The annual NC Rope Skipping Workshop, held on the first Saturday of November each year, has produced a symbol of unity among its own community, the quality of the networks and relationships that have been established at this prestigious, annual event.
I look forward to being a part of the 25th Anniversary Workshop taking place on Saturday November 1, 2014 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and hope that many new, positive relationships will be formed at an event that has a simple goal yet a profound impact.
