The Girls Bounce Back program promotes girl empowerment by building confidence and teaching teamwork through jump rope and other physical activities.
Our 6 -week program is designed to help young women between the ages of 8 -16, become resilient leaders by leveraging the competitive nature of double-dutch.
Girls will participate in training clinics while working as a team to execute turning, freestyle jumps and paired jumping styles. At the end of each session, girls will use their new skill sets to compete for a scholarship opportunity.
