Calling all jumpers!
The Comet Skippers Jump Rope Team will hold tryouts for girls and boys in grades 2‐11 for the 2014/2015 Competition Team. A mandatory parent meeting will be held on May 4th at 7:00 pm in the Mason Intermediate 56 Commons.
Training sessions begin May 5th, 6th and 7th from 6:30‐8:30pm at the Mason Intermediate School (MIS) 5-6 Gym. Final try‐out will be held Saturday, May 9th from 9:00am‐12:00 pm at the MIS 5-6 Gym.
Try‐out fees are $35.00 and will include two ropes. Team selection will be posted by the 5:00 pm on the evening of May 9th on the www.cometskippers.org web site. Approximate costs (for uniforms, equipment, tournaments, workshops and team fee), calendar and expectations will be discussed at the parent meeting.
Practices for the jump rope team are held every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evening throughout the school year. Other days may be added as needed to prepare for demonstrations / shows / competitions, etc.
In addition to regular weekly practice, we attend occasional workshops for learning and sharing skills, perform shows and demonstrations to share our sport with the community, and compete in regional competitions. The Comet Skipper team does attend a National or World Level Competition held in July each year, which is a mandatory part of the team schedule.
What to wear/bring:
• Good supportive tennis shoes ‐ please no zipper or shock‐type shoes

We look forward to meeting everyone and having a fun year jumping rope. If your child is interested please call (513) 459-9297 or email
