The third year of the summer jump rope camp is over. The event took place on 1-4.8.2019 in Prague, in the sports hall Eleven. 150 participants and 20 staff, overall from 9 different countries (CZ, SK, DE, HU, RU, FIN, CH, BE, USA) and 3 continents attended. As usual, a big staff team from the USA and Europe came. Many of these young talents have won the World Championship title from this year's World Championship. All participants, coaches and judges did an amazing job while participating at this event. In the end there was a spectacular camping show, in which all participants and staff performed. Videos and photos from the jungle themed camp can be found below.

STAFF TEAM 2019
The Staff team of the third year of the camp consisted mainly of American staff (17). We also had staff from Hungary (2) and Germany (1). This year, the staff team was extraordinary in that many of them took the top positions of individual and team freestyle disciplines at the World Championship. Seth Ingram - Single World Rope Champion 2019, Bailey Andrus - Single World Rope Champion 2019 and many more. We had the great honor of hosting the world's best jumpers in Single Rope and Double dutch.
PROGRAM FOR COACHES
The program for coaches led by Roger and Juliet Crozier has been a great success as usual. 10 participants have gained a lot of new coaching theoretical and practical knowledge from the four-day training. In addition, they also rehearsed and performed an amazing final performance.
IJRU JUDGES TRAINING
A total of 15 judges were trained and became judges according to the new IJRU rules. The training was led by Monica Foster, the most experienced judges trainer. The contents of the training were speed and freestyle disciplines (presentations, required elements and difficulty), which the participants intensively practiced for 4 days, always in the afternoon.
New to this year was CAKE CONTEST, competition for the best cake camp. Individuals and teams took part in the afternoon snack. Everyone could taste and then vote for their favorite. All the cakes were excellent, but there were only 3 best places. Martina, Ami and Štěpánka got an award for the best three places and discount vouchers for next year. Thank you all. :)
EVENING SOCIAL PROGRAM
Everyone enjoyed the evening program with staff playing social games. We had so much fun together and we got to know each other even better as well. :)
