Jumpstart was PJRA’s first virtual event via Zoom. It was through this event that PJRA first introduced itself as an association as well as its mission and vision for jump rope in the Philippines. Since it was the first event, the program was focused on teaching the basics skills required for jump rope as well as its health benefits.
This was PJRA’s second virtual event. The goal for this event was to emphasize the versatility of jump rope as an exercise and a sport. By combining the elements of jump rope and dance, PJRA was able to introduce different jump rope skills and techniques while making use of the elements of dancing such as the music, beat and choreography.
FIRST SESSION WITH THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED AND AMPUTEES
This was PJRA’s first session in collaboration with PAVIC or Parent Advocates for Visually Impaired Children. In this session, PJRA designed a program that would make it easier for the parents of visually impaired children to teach the basic jump rope skills. In this session, PJRA was able to exemplify its mission of working towards “jump rope for all.”
TRICK OR TRIP!
For this event, the board members of PJRA customized a session wherein 6 different jump rope skills/tricks were demonstrated. The tricks were taught according to the level of difficulty. This session will be a staple for PJRA’s virtual events as there are multiple skills and techniques to learn.
JUST DU IT
For this event, the six tricks previously taught during the “Trick or Trip” event were integrated into a combination of a full body workout and a jump rope workout. After two rounds of the circuit, PJRA introduced the competitive aspect of jump rope by asking the members to complete two rounds of trying to do the most repetitions of single unders within 30 seconds as well as one round of trying to do the most repetitions of unbroken double unders.
JUMP DANCE #THROWBACK
Due to the positive feedback from the first jump dance session, PJRA decided to hold another Jump Dance event. This time around, the event was focused on a throwback theme. PJRA used 70’s disco music both from local and international artists. The members were also encouraged to dress up in their best #throwback outfits.
