Rain City Ropeworks Jump Rope Team is a performance and competition team based out of West Seattle.  Team members range in age from 8 to 18 and are proficient in performance jump rope, double dutch, long rope, acro jump rope and single rope skills.  The team performs at special events, halftime shows, festivals, motivational school assemblies and we compete in local, regional and national tournaments. Our goal is to share our passion of  jumping rope for fun and fitness and build well rounded athletes with a strong sense of growth mindset, confidence, inclusion and sportspersonship. 

Rain City Ropeworks is a registered 501 c 3 non profit organization registered in WA state.  
Jump rope is portable, inexpensive and can be done virtually anywhere – making it an incredibly equitable activity.   We believe anyone should have access to the joy of jumping rope and be able to learn new skills. All of our programs offer a no questions asked scholarship policy and we partner with organizations who offer the same.  EIN 

We provide funding for travel and performance opportunities as well as outreach to area youth.  We aim to raise funds to support Rain City Jump Rope Team for travel to competitions, performances and workshops, overhead cost and athlete scholarships.
