Jumping rope

rope skills
are fun for everyone while promoting
the value of physical activity
and teamwork. This is a group
version of jumping rope to try.
A fairly long, substantial rope is
turned by two people, one at each
end. The remainder line up and
follow each other, in quick succession,
to skip, jumping one, two, or
three skips and then joining the end
of the queue again. A more complicated
variation is to use two ropes.
(Dutch Ropes), the turners hold a
rope in each hand and turn the ropes
alternately. It is quite a feat to skip
over the two turning ropes without
getting fouled up.
