Skipping Workshops promotes health and fitness through skipping nationwide in the UK, and occasionally abroad.
Most of our work is done by our visits to primary schools, but we also organise regular skipping clubs, 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.
We think skipping is a great activity for people of all ages, but especially children. We have found that skipping improves fitness, coordination and cooperation skills, and behaviour, but equally importantly it is a form of exercise which can be enjoyed by all.

We are proud to organise the annual National Skipping Day - a yearly event where children celebrate skipping and healthy exercise through schools in the UK. In 2013, over 32,000 children took part from schools all over the UK and Ireland.
In addition to this we organise a yearly skipping competition called the National Skipping Challenge. Schools can compete in a variety of skipping categories, and the best schools and individual skippers are recognised at the end of each year.
Winners of the last National Skipping Challenge 2012 were Watermore Primary School (South Glos.) with the individual skipping award being shared between Nicole Wade (Watermore Primary) and Ben Jeffrey (St. John the Baptist, Richmond).
"We now have a skipping craze at school. 10 out of 10 and plan to book again next year." -
