Jump Rope Clinic Attracts Hundreds

More than 350 people took part in "The Heartthrobbers" jump rope clinic at John Tyler High School today.

The clinic is one of the largest of it's kind in the country, and it's meant to advance kids in the sport of Jump Roping.

Teams from as far away as Washington State showed up to practice their jump rope skills and routines. Many use the clinic as practice for future competitions.

It's the 8th year for the workshop, which is hosted by "The Heartthrobbers" team out of Jones Middle School in Tyler.

As well as putting on a clinic for jumpropers, adults were trained as coaches and a certification course for those wanting to judge jumprope events was also held.

The clinic is held every year on the third weekend in January.
