Jumpin’ Allstars heading to national competition

Dylan Bilicki and Kaileigh Hermann turn double-dutch speed for Margot Moffa at the 2017 Grand National championship. They jumped 716 times in two minutes, placing second overall in the event.

Led by 2016 Grand Nationals Freestyle Pairs Champions Tyler deBeauclair (Pinckney) and Ben Phillips (Brighton), and 2017 Grand Nationals Double Dutch Speed Runners Up Kaileigh Hermann (Howell), Margot Moffa and Dylan Bilicki (both of Brighton), the Jumpin’ Allstars Jump Rope team is sending a strong team of jumpers back to the USA Jump Rope National Championship in June. The 37 nationals qualifiers comprise the biggest team the Jumpin’ Allstars have taken to nationals. Team veterans are joined by 12 first-time qualifiers who will compete in 13 individual and group age-level events over three days at the competition in Wisconsin Dells. Jumpers placing in the Top 12 across all age groups will compete at Grand Nationals on the fourth day.

Coach Renee Nix says that the team has never been better prepared for national competition. They are surpassing their speed goals, and freestyle routines have improved in both technical skills and presentation.

The annual Jumpin’ Allstars Summer camp will be held after the team returns from Wisconsin on June 27-29.
