Welcome to Skipping Workshops

Skipping Workshops promotes skipping as a healthy form of exercise throughout the UK.

We organise a national skipping competition, the ‘National Skipping Challenge’, visit hundreds of schools a year with our proven and high-quality skipping workshops, and we also sell gymnastic skipping ropes.

Skipping is a great activity for people of all ages, but especially children. We have found that skipping improves fitness, coordination, cooperation, and behaviour. Grab a skipping rope and join us!

Children & Schools

Most of our work is done through our visits to primary schools across the UK, but we also organise regular skipping clubs, and work with youth groups and play-schemes.

We can tailor our daily schedule to suit the size of your school or group, ranging from special PE classes for every class in a school to our free skipping demonstrations.

Skipping for Fitness

Skipping is an ideal form of exercise, as it quickly gets the heart and lungs working hard. It is something that can be done on the playground or in the school hall, and doesn’t require any expensive equipment. Skipping helps develop coordination and cooperation skills, and is a form of exercise which can be enjoyed by all.

National Skipping Day 2016

National Skipping Day 2016 is being held on Friday March 18th.

National Skipping Day is an annual event, organised by Skipping Workshops and sponsored by Nortech Jump Ropes, where children from across the UK celebrate skipping as a healthy and fun form of exercise.

Over 64,000 children from over 250 schools took part in NSD2015 and we hope that NSD2016 will be even bigger.

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks very much for organising the skipping day with Jamie – it was a resounding success! She was great with all the year groups and had the children focused, motivated and coached them brilliantly. Really got the children engaged and by last break time I would estimate at least 3/4 of the school were out skipping on the playground. Would be great to get you in again next September so will keep in touch, Many Thanks.
