Oct 11th, '18 - 2019 Nationals Update

Coaches and Teams,

UPDATE: NEW OPTIONS FOR TICKETS/HOTEL for the 2019 U.S. National Jump Rope Championship

We sent out a survey over the summer. You spoke, and we listened! We are happy to announce that our Walt Disney World® Sports partners will provide package options for competitors and coaches that do not want the park tickets. You will have the choice between a package with 3-day park passes and one that is competition-only.

The headquarter hotel will be Pop Century Resort. Members will also have the option to upgrade their packages to a moderate or deluxe hotel of their choosing. And anyone can customize your packages to include meals, drink packages, etc. Your Disney Planner will help you through the process.

We are very excited to host our event at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex Arena! The Arena is a new state-of-the-art facility with a ton of room, awesome food choices and plenty of comfortable seats.

Again, this year, we will host a one-day camp, June 30th after Nationals. We have a very exciting announcement to make about Nationals. You won’t want to miss out this year. Look for the announcement in November.

We will also announce the location for 2020 at Nationals! Where will we be??

For now, get your memberships in, start working on your awesome routines for Regional Tournaments and we will see you all June 25-30th!
