Tsunami Skippers Jump Rope Team

Tsunami Skippers Jump Rope Team was founded in 2006. The goal of founders Stacey Dundas and Shannon Carey is to give kids an alternative sport in Clatsop county. A sport that would help young people learn teamwork, the benefits of exercise, self confidence and respect for others.

Over the years they have performed at events such as Elementary School Assemblies, Parades, Community events, corporate events as well as half-time show for High School, College and professional sports.

The Tsunami Skippers compete in open tournaments as well as regional, national and world championships each year. They have competed with grace, composure and are a great example of true sportsmanship!

“I have seen a transformation in my son since he joined Tsunami Skippers!  He has developed so much confidence, leadership skills, and has made friends he will have for life.  As a family, we get to travel and experience things we would not ordinarily do.  As a parent, I love my Tsunami Family!”

Kelli B, Mom

“We were new to the area and my daughter mentioned offhand wanting to try out for a jump rope team (I didn’t even know that was a thing!). I admit to being skeptical at first but over the last year she has worked her tail off and had so much fun doing it!  She loves Tsunami Skippers and being a part of the awesome skippers community”

Jennifer S, Mom
