Suggested Grade Level:
TURNERS: Turn rope with your arms using medium to large circles. Don't turn rope with wrist
TURNERS: Watch jumpers feet as you turn
TURNERS: Don't get too far apart--some of the rope should be dragging the floor
JUMPERS: To enter a turning rope, stand on the side of the rope so the rope is being turned towards you. Enter by following the rope, and go to the center between the turners
JUMPERS: Face one of the turners and while jumping don't move from the center of the rope. It is helpful to tape an "X" on the floor to "mark" the middle
JUMPERS: Make small jumps (just big enough to clear the rope) and land on balls of feet
