The School Hula Hoop Contest We Want To See

FlagThis story makes it clearer than any other in a long time that the face of hula hooping is most definitely turning our direction. In Jamaica, West Indies, Forty-eight students from 21 schools that entered the National Health Fund (NHF) Hula Hoopers competition will participate in the finals. But just in case you were thinking it was going to be another 1950’s style hoop off, in this case it’s something else. “At the final, the hula-hoop routine will be judged on degree of difficulty, use of body movement, rotation speed of hoop, choreography of routine, creativity with the hoop and fluidity of movement of the hoop. The NHF is seeking, through the introduction of the Hula Hoopers competition, to expand the opportunities for children to become physically active. Competitors are vying for bicycles, sports gift vouchers and trophies for the top three schools. Jamaica Gleaner News
