The Apex Skip-Its is a performance jump rope team for kids from second grade through high school. Coach Tommy Hager, elementary school PE teacher and ambassador for “Jump Rope for Heart,” uses twenty-three years of experience to promote heart health and life-long fitness.
Through community service, skills clinics, half-time shows, conventions, and church and school performances, the team shares the sport of jump rope across the state. The Apex Skip-Its’ focus is on more than just turning ropes. They develop strong character, integrity, and teamwork in addition to practicing healthy lifestyles.
The Apex Skip-Its has traveled the state to perform in countless schools, community events, health expos and parades. We have taught workshops to students as well as to other PE Teachers on both how to jump rope (single rope freestyle, speed & power; partner jumping skills and turning & jumping Double Dutch). The Apex Skip-Its is dedicated to teaching our team members about character development (humility, perseverance, respect, responsibility, servant leadership, etc.), and the importance of a strong work ethic. And we have a blast using the sport of jump rope to do all that! Please contact us to schedule a performance or workshop for your school or group.
