As our sport and outreach programs grow, so do our expenses. The success of our program is not only dependent upon the hard work of our jumpers and coaches, but also through the financial support of parents, local merchants, our community and corporations.
We are so grateful if you would consider a donation to our team to support our efforts!

The success of our program is not only dependent upon the hard work of our jumpers and coaches, but also through the financial support of parents, local merchants, our community and corporations.
As a corporate sponsor of the Comet Skippers, you will promote your business, and you will receive positive media attention and community exposure through your association with The Comet Skippers.
Becoming a corporate sponsor of the Comet Skippers is a tremendous opportunity to support a program that enhances the wellbeing of 1000’s of youth every year. You are not only supporting our Mason, Ohio team, you are helping to facilitate the sport of jump rope all around the world and often to young children who would not otherwise be exposed to it.
Thank you for your consideration!
Your donations help support:
A. Domestic travel for one jumper/season = $1000
This includes fall workshops for learning skills and competitions in the spring.
B. Domestic travel for one jumper/season = $2000
This includes fall workshops for learning skills, competitions in the spring and one domestic season end championship.
C. International travel for one jumper/season = $4000
This includes workshops for learning skills, competitions in the spring and one international world championship.
A. International travel for a coach and 6 jumpers for one outreach = $10,000.
We receive numerous invitations to visit foreign countries to help start up the sport of jump rope, build new teams and educate coaches and judges in the sport. The hosts usually provide meals, host homes and ground transportation to help minimize costs.
B. Domestic travel for a coach and 10 jumpers for one outreach = $6,000.
We receive numerous invitations to visit regional, national and continental areas to help start up new teams and mentor existing teams. Our US, Canadian and Central America friends also cover as many expenses as possible.
College scholarships for one graduating senior = $1000.
Currently colleges do not have sports scholarships available for jump rope athletes. Our athletes are honor students, very active in clubs and activities and are leaders in their schools. We grant each graduating senior $1,000 toward their higher education. We have 1 high school senior this year, we will have 6 seniors in 2020, and 12 seniors in 2021.
Team Van = $50,000
We travel as a team dozens of times each season for workshops, competitions, demonstrations and more. A 15 passenger team van emblazoned with the team logo would be an amazing marketing vehicle and very functional for us. It would aid us so much in being able to accept more of the outreach invitations we receive. We would proudly display the sponsor’s name and logo as well.
A. Uniforms and Equipment = $250 / athlete; $20,000 / team.
The uniform package per athlete on our team includes a team owned formal uniform and warm up. Each year the jumper needs to purchase 5 team shirts and 3 team shorts. New jumpers purchase a $50 team backpack. They replenish jump ropes as needed throughout the season. On average, each team member spends $100 / season on uniforms and equipment. Most jumpers go through two (2) pair of shoes each season, on average $125 / season.
B. Team Equipment = $500.
We purchase team equipment occasionally and only as needed. This includes ropes, sound equipment, etc. We are very frugal and only purchase team items as needed.
