Why use our Skipping Challenges?
Our Skipping Challenges are simple to use with everything you need all in one place. the Challenges Series enable the needs of all ability levels to be met whilst enhancing some key life skills!
Pupils will need to practice (RESILIENCE) to achieve the times required for each award, they won't realise how much exercise they are doing as they will be having FUN!
You do not have to submit any results. Pupils can record their own progress (INDEPENDENCE) and Skipping Leaders can undertake key roles (LEADERSHIP).
Schools can use the pupil's record as evidence of improved COORDINATION; SPEED; AGILITY & ENDURANCE.
The challenges are easy to use and can be used:
