A unique sport will be taking over the Dow Centennial Centre this weekend.
The Rope Skipping 2017 Provincial Championships will see 110 athletes from across Alberta competing for gold.
The Heartland High Energy Jump Rope Club, which has nine athletes from different towns within the area, will be the host team.
"I got into competitive skipping because it is unique and not a lot of people have heard about it. I thought it fit better than dance or anything like that," said competitor Alynn Lega.
Competitive rope skipping combines elements of aerobics, synchronized dance, gymnastics and breakdancing all tied together with jump ropes.
"I love this team a lot," said Everett Grahamn, another Heartland High Energy competitor, "they're very fun and enjoyable to be with. I think our greatest strength this year is our speed."
The competition runs April 8 and 9 and is free for the public to attend.
"The provincials is where these kids get to showcase and they love showcasing. The harder you clap, the louder your cheer, the better they do. Competitive jump rope is a mixture of everything. It's hard to explain, you have to come see it," said Jackie Lega of the Heartland team.
Events start at 9:00 a.m. both mornings and runs until 4:00 p.m.
