King's National Skipping Success
King's Skipperoos had a team of 17 athletes compete at the National Skipping Championships held at Carrara Sports Centre from 4-6 June, against 200 athletes from across Australia (unfortunately VIC competitors could not attend). King's team competed in Single Rope and Double Dutch events as individuals, pairs and teams and achieved many top 10 placings. Thanks to Head Coach, Elly Meteyad for her dedication and supreme coaching, as well as judging some of the events. It takes a team effort to achieve such outstanding results at this level, and King's are grateful to have such a talented and supportive skipping community.King's Skipperoos Top 3 Placings
The national event concluded the majority of the Skipperoo's competitive 2021 season, however, Year 12 student Skipperoo and coach, Jasmine Hawkins, is still in training as she prepares to compete in the virtual World Championships. Students Annie Myburgh, Charlotte Mikkelson, Zoe Mitchell and Jordan Smith are also working hard as they prepare for the virtual International Open tournament. These events will be televised worldwide on the Olympic channel and other media outlets, with results expected in October.
King's is also creating a new All Schools Jump Rope competition with two events already scheduled for this September and November this year at King's. This will attract many schools and will build from year to year.
