USA Jump Rope is extremely excited to host the 2020 Virtual Nationals to celebrate our 25th Anniversary! You will be able to compete from your home, local gym if your state allows practices or anywhere suitable that works for you. The events will need to be filmed with our timing tracks heard clearly in the background and uploaded to a specific website we will provide. 


There will be a time frame for filming and uploading your events, a time frame for judges to judge and enter scores and a week of scheduled events for athletes, family, and friends to watch pre-recorded events. A virtual awards ceremony will happen after all events are shown. There will be drawings and giveaways during the viewing week!

Watch Party!

Your events will be featured on our YouTube Channel during the viewing time once the events are judged. We will announce the winners in a Virtual Awards Ceremony and medals will be mailed for 1-3 place. We will give everyone their age division and a list of heats so you, your family and friends can view you competing. Everyone can log on and watch from the safety of their homes!
