There are different techniques of leaping on jumping rope, eg: run skips, criss-cross, with both feet, or on one leg. A jumping person jumps and says the rhyme: "Pan Sobieski miał trzy pieski: czerwony, zielony, niebieski” (Mr. Sobieski had three dogs: red, green, blue). At the end of the rhyme the person throws the jumping rope behind herself/himself and tries to estimate the distance to the rope. It is measured by: elephant steps, normal steps and small steps. She/he turns around and heads in the direction of the rope counting as many steps as she/he marked out. If the person will touch with the last step the rope – then she/he wins.
