The Bayside Skippers

20 years of jumping for joy

Since the team’s formation in 1993, the Brewster Bayside Skippers have been promoting the sport of jump rope while teaching the value of self-motivation, physical fitness, and teamwork. Started by coach Paul Mullin and now coached by John Hammond, the team has grown from a handful of elementary students into a team of national and international champions.  This year there were over 30 athletes participating in the Skipper program from ages 7-18, with the oldest girls coaching the youngest members in a wonderful mentoring situation.

In 2005 the Skippers’ five member high school team represented the US at the World Jump Rope Championship in Brisbane, Australia, where they placed 1st in Double Dutch Freestyle and 7th overall. In 2010 at the USA Jump Rope National Competition in Galveston, TX, the Skippers, proudly representing their hometown of Brewster, Massachusetts placed in the top ten in several events where there were 1000 competitors from all over the US. So far in 2013 the team has hosted its 16th annual Jumpin’ By The Bay Competition in Orleans, Massachusetts and again had all 19 competition team members qualify for Nationals in Long Beach, CA this June. 

Most recently at The USA Jump Rope 2013 National Age Division Championships our team placed in the following events:
