This great YouTube video features some incredible skill and showmanship. It’s halftime at an Army-Navy basketball game. These colleges are fierce rivals. What could bring both sides to a standing ovation?

What about a team of girls jumping rope? The Firecrackers are a team of elementary and junior high girls from Ohio. And they’ve taken jumping rope to the extreme. Their skills have made them a sensation at sporting events. They’ve jumped in the Macy’s Day parade. They even had a spot on The Late Show with David Letterman.

The Firecrackers practice for two hours a day, five days a week. That’s on top of keeping their grades up. And each girl must pass an etiquette class to make the team. After watching this, you’ll see that they deserve every ovation they get.
