During it's 25th anniversary, USA Jump Rope will invite individual competitors and teams from across the nation, including the local Cleveland Heartbeats to as far as Alaska, to compete at the Championship level.
Athletes will qualify at national and regional tournaments held in their home regions before traveling to Northeast Ohio. Approximately 500 competitors, family and friends will bring an estimated $1.3 million in economic impact to the community.
Competitions will consist of age division matches for Single Rope and Double Dutch events in both speed and freestyle for groups 10 and under through 50 and over.
