USA Jump Rope's New Website Format
Greetings USAJR Members!
As you may have noticed, usajumprope.org is in the midst of a big makeover! We will be working diligently over the next several weeks to get everything updated so we ask that you be please be patient with us through this process.
The biggest thanks IN THE UNIVERSE goes out to Mr. Roger Hoggarth, website guru extraordinaire, and member/parent of the Tri-Force Jump Rope Team in Cary NC for his help, along with the USAJR Technology Committee, in the planning and implementation of this new site structure!
USA Jump Rope is Going Green!
We ask that the coaches e-mail the USA Jump Rope office if they would like to receive hard copies for their team and we will print and mail the number requested directly to the coaches to distribute to your team. We hope that this will help us save on purchasing paper products and we also encourage our members to receive the newsletter online to help in this effort. Please e-mail our office at [email protected] with the number of copies you would like for your team or please pass along the online copy to your team members. Thank you!
Over 200 jumpers from across the United States performed in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this year. A very big THANK YOU goes out to Pam and Ken Evans for coordinating this massive effort once again this year. GREAT JOB JUMPERS!
Here are the highlights:
The Kangaroo Kids are just one of several teams in USA Jump Rope that are preparing for the 2013 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade held every year in New York City. Recently, they were on a local morning news program and we now have the link available for you to see it. Click Here!
Congratulations Kangaroo Kids and good luck to all those USAJR members who are participating in the parade this year!
