At the 2017 Rope Skipping Alberta Annual General Meeting, Denise Fisher presented the concept of forming the Alberta Rope Skipping Foundation (ARSF) as a completely separate entity from Rope Skipping Alberta. The objective of ARSF is to support the development of rope skipping in Alberta by providing resources to rope skippers at all stages of development to continue their pursuit of personal excellence.
Over the next few years, ARSF will seek to provide:
- Grant opportunities to clubs wanting to host skill development workshops
- Travel support to athletes on elite development pathway to attend international competitions
- Grants to new support the development of new clubs
- Grants for sport science and technical support
ARSF will not be competing with Rope Skipping Alberta to pursue recognition as the provincial sport organization for rope skipping in Alberta, but rather will encourage and support the efforts of RSA.
ARSF requires five committed individuals to form its Board of Directors to apply for incorporation of ARSF.
If you are interested in lending your time and talents to support the launch of the Alberta Rope Skipping Foundation, please contact Denise Fisher at
