They participate in major competition events at state, national and international level. Beenleigh Skipping Banditz are part of "Skipping Australia", who are dedicated to the promotion of the sport of rope skipping as a fun and competitive aerobic activity. Beenleigh Banditz have 5 experienced coaches. Head coach Nikki Turner has 21 years coaching experience with the Heart Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart program and holds formal qualifications with Skipping Australia.

Beginner Lesson Information

Plain sticky notes

Beginner- white level

Level One is designed to give skippers confidence at single rope, partner rope, long rope and double dutch jumping. Some basic arm and leg skills are taught, and students are encouraged to ‘have a go’ at all types of skipping. Most skippers (except the very young) will progress through white level in one term.

Intermediate - yellow level

Level Two is designed to allow skippers the time to consolidate basic skills. Some more intermediate single rope skills are taught, and skippers are learning to turn as well as jump in long rope, multiple ropes and double dutch. Skippers are expected to be able to do most skills in combination with other skills, in a routine style with confidence and fluency. Most skippers will take at least 2 terms (sometimes longer) to complete yellow level.
