Making exercise fun for all children is not easy but this fantastic activity can do that and more! Skipping is making a comeback big style! Gone are the days when skipping was thought of as a playground game for girls.

Skipping 4 Life provide a new and exciting approach to skipping making it appealing to every child. Head coach Skippy John (the name Richard Hammond gave him after his appearance on the hit TV show Total Wipeout) has taken his unrivalled enthusiasm for fitness and skipping to schools and children all over the UK and Ireland.

Not only is skipping one of the best forms of all-round exercise but with the popularity of films like “Jump In” and the children’s TV programme "Jump Nation" skipping is now officially cool!

Skipping 4 Life workshops mix traditional skipping skills together with exciting Partner, Double Dutch and Long Rope games to appeal to every child and promote cooperative play. John has over ten years of experience of working in primary schools and knows how engage with every child and delivers entertaining and amusing but professional sessions, challenging the talented and encouraging and inspiring the not so sporty or reluctant to achieve skills they never knew they had.    John and his team will also help your school structure and organise the day so you as teachers can sit back (or join in of course) and watch every child improve not only their skipping skills but also their self-esteem.

We guarantee your playgrounds will go “skipping crazy” after our visit but these workshops are not designed as a short term fix, as our company name suggests, once the children have been taught properly they will never forget so will be able to “skip for life”!  We will also help and encourage schools to sustain skipping by providing age/skill appropriate challenges, advice and ropes to take these new found skills forward.

We can contribute to healthy schools week and/or special events such as sponsored skips, teach the teachers or hold an after school workshop for children and parents.
