The National Skipping Challenge is a nationwide skipping competition organised by Skipping Workshops. Children and schools compete against each other in 6 different categories, and be crowned the overall National Skipping Challenge School Winner and Individual Winner.
Since the competition started in 2002, over 5000 children from over 600 different schools throughout England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland and the Isle of Man have taken part. We’ve also had special entries from the Channel Islands, Hong Kong and Dubai.
The National Skipping Challenge motivates and inspires children to raise their own standard and improve their skipping skills. Over the last 14 years the National Skipping Challenge has led to a huge rise in standards of skipping across the country.
