Overview & History

The event was founded by Rope Sports (Singapore) and Athlete Development. The very first JumpFest was held at Hongwen Primary School in 2009 with only six schools and about 87 participants.

JumpFest 2010 and 2011 were held at United Square Shopping Mall and the National Library respectively.

The last JumpFest in 2012 was held at Shelton College attracting 13 schools and more than 300 participants.

JumpFest was not organized in 2013 due to the lack of resources, as Rope Sports (Singapore) was hosting the  Asian Rope-Skipping Championships held at ITE College East.

The two main objectives of JumpFest are:

 

1. Sport/CCA promotion

 
Provide an organized competition for secondary  schools students since the national schools competition is held only at the primary school level.
 
2. Promote rope-skipping as a sport and fitness activity for everyone
 

Team challenges such as the SkipFit® Long Rope Relay were included to attract both children and adults to get excited about participating in rope-skipping as a multi-faceted fitness activity and sport

After a one year absence, JumpFest is back and will for the first time incorporate the latest in rope-skipping technology  (Rope Skipping Auto Detection System) with the team challenges. For JumpFest 2014, we aim to garner at least 500 participants from 20 different organizations.

JumpFest 2014 is made up of 2 main segments:

 1. Team Challenges

  • SkipFit® Long Rope Relay

A team event made up of TEN team members and one reserve.

The objective of the Long Rope Relay is for teams to complete as many successful skips as possible in the long rope within 1 minute. Every jumper will enter the long rope, performs a jump, before exiting in a “figure 8” pathway around the turners.

There are 2 categories – Primary (for primary school students) and Open (for anyone age 13 and above).

  • SkipFit® 3 min Challenge

A team event made up of TEN team members and one reserve.

The objective of this challenge is for all ten skippers to make as many successful skips as possible within 3 minutes. This challenge will be conducted using the Rope Skipping Auto Detection System (RADS).

There are 2 categories:

Primary (for primary school students), and Open (for anyone age 13 and above).

2. Fringe Events

Participants will be entertained by freestyle rope-skipping performances, and a line-up of rope-skipping workshops will also be conducted for participants to pick up new rope-skipping tricks, and also for PE teachers to discover new rope-skipping games and activities for their students.
