Skipperoos Regional & State Success

Extra Curricular

Last weekend, King’s Skipperoos participated in two major jump rope competitions. In both events, Personal Best scores were achieved and medals and ribbons were won. The Regional Speed Event was hosted by Earnshaw State College in Brisbane on Sunday, 14 August, and was attended by Skipperoos Bonnie, Chloe, Bella, Cindy, Addison and Ashlee. The girls competed against other schools and clubs in 30, 60 and 90-second speed, double unders, triple unders, relays and double dutch speed events. The day was a great opportunity to join with other skippers and to get in some competition practice before travelling to the upcoming National Championships. Thanks to coach Jill and our King's parents who attended to make the event a success. See their results below:

Regional Speed Event ResultsCanberra Team

Three of our senior athletes, Charlotte, Jordan and Jasmine, travelled to Canberra to compete in the NSW/ACT State Championship which was held at Queanbeyan from 13 - 14 August. This was a great preparation event for the upcoming National Championships which will be held in Darwin during the September school holidays. The athletes competed in all speed events as well as freestyle events. This event was a fun way to connect and compete with other athletes who are also preparing for Nationals. See their results below:
