Open to all Newtown children ages 5 and up and teens. Experienced athletes from Newtown's former competitive jump rope team, the Moon Jumpers, will lead the workshop, along with some special guests who want to show their support for the town. Guest instructors will include jumpers from champion jump rope teams in Torrington, CT, and Rhode Island, plus a couple of master jumpers from South Africa.

During the workshop, kids will be grouped according to age and ability to learn single rope tricks, Double Dutch, and even some advanced jump rope group skills, such as Chinese Wheel and Traveler.

The jump rope workshop is sponsored by Newtown Parks & Recreation, and there is no cost to attend. Newtown children only, please. Kids should come ready to jump, wearing sneakers and athletic clothing and with a water bottle.
