CELEBRATING 22 YEARS!
Palpitating Panthers Jump Rope Team is proud to have a long and rich history in the Southern California area as well as in the jump rope world. The team began in 1990 under founding coach, Janis Fuhrman. Palpitating Panthers and its team members have been at the vanguard of the sport, appearing in multiple commercials, videos, and tv shows. In order to spread the sport and promote a healthy lifestyle for children, the Panthers perform and teach for numerous schools and other events with the American Heart Association. We compete at the local and national level through AAU Junior Olympic Games, and at USAJR Nationals.
We hope to teach hundreds of kids in the future the fun and amazing sport of jump rope!
The Janis Fuhrman Scholarship Program
This scholarship fund began ten years ago under founder and former coach, Janis Fuhrman. Recipients are jumpers that have been an active member of Palpitating Panthers Jump Rope Team throughout their middle and high school years. Graduating Seniors in Palpitating Panthers are highly trained performers as well as inspirational teachers to our younger members. We believe that after several years of experience on the Panthers, our jumpers have great sportsmanship as well as role-models. To reward their years of hard work and dedication, those graduating seniors receive the Janis Fuhrman Scholarship.
