Introduction

Skipping is an activity played by children and many young adults, where one or more participants jump over a rope swung so that it passes under their feet and over their heads. 

Skipping may be used for a cardiovascular workout, similar to jogging or bicycle riding. Skipping can achieve a "burn rate" of up to 700 calories per hour of vigorous activity, with about 0.1 calories consumed per jump. Ten minutes of skipping is roughly the equivalent of running 1 kilometre in eight minutes. Jumping rope for 15–20 minutes is enough to burn off the calories from a bar of chocolate.

Objectives

a. To stimulate interest and love for the sport amongst the pupils
b. To instil sportsmanship and fair play
