Coordination, body and limb designs are related to the environmental objects and events. The aim of this study was to investigate the necessity to implement rope jumping program in Iran schools and since one of the major problems in learning how to write is eye–hand coordination, the effect of a rope jumping training course on eye–hand coordination was investigated in the fourth grade elementary students. In this case, 60 male students from fourth grade of elementary schools in Baharestan city of Tehran (in 1390-91) were selected by stage sampling method and were divided into experimental and control groups. Experimental group performed the selected rope jumping program three sessions a week for 10 weeks. To evaluate the eye–hand coordination skill, the Vienna test was used in pretest and posttest. After the normality of data was tested by K-S test, they were analyzed using independent and dependent t tests at P˂0.05. Results indicated significant improvements in the experimental group (P=0.44 for the right hand and P=0.009 for the left hand). Also, there was a significant difference in the posttest mean scores of eye–hand coordination between the experimental and control groups (P=0.0009). The results showed that the rope jumping exercise program enhanced eye-hand coordination. So this research necessitated the implementation of the rope jumping program in Iran schools.
