a community jump rope program
Created in 2010, OPEN ROPES was program designed to bring jumpers of all backgrounds together in an accessible environment by hosting jump rope events in public spaces.
OPEN ROPES was FREE and open to everyone of all ages, skills, and styles. Our skilled instructors were on-hand to provide ropes and basic instruction in a fun block party environment!
Through OPEN ROPES we built a community that encourages everyone to jump, regardless of experience, age or gender. We believe that EVERY able bodied person can double dutch and we are committed to creating double dutchers with every turn of the rope.
