12 Step Approach and Takeoff Discussion

Long Jump Coaching Tips

  • Use only maximum controllable speed.
  • Train the full approach with check marks.
  • Ingraining good mechanics in the penultimate set-up is very important.
  • Maintain horizontal velocity.  Do not slow down at take-off.
  • Practice jumps are used for technique, not for distance.
  • Good technique will eventually create good distance.
  • Practice jumps off of a box into the high jump pit for easy landing.
