Created in 2010, OPEN ROPES our community double dutch program has been designed to bring jumpers of all backgrounds together in an accessible environment by hosting jump rope events in public spaces.
OPEN ROPES is FREE and open to all ages, skills, and jump styles. Our skilled instructors are on-hand to provide ropes and basic instruction in a fun block party environment!
Through OPEN ROPES we continue to build 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.
