AFFILIATIONS OF OTHER ORGANIZATIONS
JUMP ROPE ORGANIZATIONS
Rope Federation organizes jump rope camps and tournaments
in Double Dutch and Single Rope competition around the U.S.
every year. The national championship tournament is held at
Disney World in Orlando, Florida every June. USAJRF also offers
promotional and educational videos,
two of which I authored (I'm a former board member and former
educational committee chair). Although most of the members
of USAJRF are children, the organization is not only open
to adults, but also offers competitive events for adults.
