USA Jump Stars was founded by veteran jumper Melinda Everett in 2007 as an effort to promote physical education to children of all ages. We promote jump rope as a means for creating a healthy body and mind. Our focus is fighting childhood obesity and heart disease while developing personal values, team spirit and sportsmanship through competition, live performance and fun! Our programs are offered at numerous elementary schools, community centers and YMCA facilities.
The Coronado Speed Spinners are a competition and performance jump rope team based in San Diego, CA. This competition and performance team has been featured in the Fox show “Glee” twice, and McDonald’s, Hillshire Farms, Lance Cracker, Shoe Carnival, and Sport Authority commercials. They were also welcomed to appear on the TV show “The Doctors” and “American Idol”. The Speed Spinners maintain a lineup of some of the best jump rope athletes in the nation, with several regional, national, and world titles.
