The Tournament of Champions began in 1980 when Bob Melson, original coach of Hot Dog USA, held an open invitational jump rope tournament in the Seattle, Washington area.  He invited teams from all over the world to come and compete in a fun tournament to promote the infant sport of jump rope.  The Tournament of Champions has always been about providing opportunities to compete in a fun and friendly environment where jumpers can share skills and make new friends. The Champions of this tournament are the jumpers who spend countless hours working to improve their skills, and sharing those skills with others.
