Jump roping is a conditioning exercise to be reckoned with, and when you install the lost art form of double dutch then best believe your child’s skillsets will be elevated beyond normalcy which allows for better technique in his or her other sports. Enter the Greenbelt Sity Stars Jump Rope Team who recently hosted a performance fundraiser in Greenbelt, MD. The boys and girls on the squad are dedicated, focused, super fit and coordinated.
For example, my daughter has excelled at a rapid pace in her first season with the team. Thanks to the hard work ethic instilled by Coach Kim Bradshaw, Aya is now able to complete multiple, full routines succinctly. Jumping teaches coordination, adaption of new lessons and patterns and of course physical fitness and endurance. Aya is now quicker and stronger than ever which helps with her soccer, running and basketball.
It certainly doesn’t hurt to give your kid a shot at it. For more info on the team visit www.greenbeltsitystars.org.
