    When a teenager named Izzy gives up boxing to join a jump rope team in Jump In!,Jump In! Kelsy Moe, 22, became the female champion last year for moves such as the "double under frog" and "triple under," in which she performs handstands and jumps while twirling the rope around her body up to three times before her feet finally hit the ground. In addition to the Disney movie, which will air six times over the next five weeks, ESPN2 will broadcast the national championships on January 14 and February 13th, and the Discovery Channel is planning to air a documentary called Double Time, which focuses on two top double dutch teams, later this year.
