“All national team members have learned how to jump through the Bermuda Heart Foundation’s youth active outreach program “Jump 2B Fit” . The program has worked hard at becoming a model for producing youth ambassadors for the island who are passionate about jump rope, physical activity, civic engagement, and personal empowerment!

“Our jumpers train 3 times a week for 3 hours consisting of a mix of strength, conditioning and endurance training as well as working to enhance their single rope, double dutch, speed and freestyle jump skills.

Head Coach Sionna Barton states, “Although the sport may be a new one, and not one widely recognized, we are proud of the growth and the hard work and dedication put forth by these Bermudian youth, and is something that should be highly recognized by our community.”

“Throughout the Spring/Summer term the Bermy Bouncers will be doing a demonstration assembly tour at primary & middle schools as a way to promote the sport of jump rope! The best way to get your child into jumping is either through a school based Jump 2B Fit program or they can sign up for the JAG Athletic Jump Rope Program.
