About US


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!
