LONG & TRIPLE
Welcome to Long and Triple! Since 2017 we've offered free assistance to those that are interested in the long and triple jump events in track and field. To date, the site has assisted countless national and international athletes with their development that has lead to great success in that time. Our goal is to continue to develop worthwhile information for any interested coaches, athletes, parents, etc. to grow the sport of track and field as much as possible. It isn't by any means a "mainstream" sport here in the United States and our goal is to change that. If you have any questions or would like to contribute to the site please don't hesitate to reach out!
CRITICAL UPDATE FROM COACH EWING - PLEASE READ!
COVID-19 halted much of the progress here on Long & Triple. Like the rest of the world, I was waiting by patiently for everything to find balance once again. With that said, the book I have discussed on this site (and give details of below) is very much still being worked on, and is on track to hopefully be published near the end of 2021.
To prove my dedication to the book and helping every visitor and member I recently signed up to become a certified Strength & Conditioning coach and have begun working with a local sports performance team to build my knowledge in hopes to build these two wonderful events even more in the near future.
Lastly, and possibly most important, I no longer coach for the Sun Prairie Cardinals as I had for many years prior to the inception of this site in 2017. In many cases athletes/coaches from other districts/states/countries would find my school specific email and would use that to communicate with me. That email address is no longer active so I ask that you use email@example.com.
If you need ANYTHING from me this season please don't hesitate to reach out and I will assist you the best I possibly can. It's time to get our athletes back out there and enjoying the best events there are - Long & Triple.
As the site began to grow in popularity so did my thirst to help as many people as possible. Thus, I began writing a book focused the two jumps and all that goes into coaching them to the highest of levels. As of now, I plan to release the book by the end of 2020 (despite COVID-19). The book will cover (but isn't limited to):
Drills need to be progressive in nature. Athletes need to be taught things in order for them to tansfer.
Progressive Drill Breakdowns
Strength & Conditioning is a tricky thing. Everyone is different and has different needs. I'll break down MUSTS in this area.

I feel there are some very strong misunderstandings when it comes to coaching middle school.

I've spent an immense amount of hours creating video/audio for athletes and coaches to use in training.
Countless Video Tutorials
The word "checklist" makes me thing of routine. That's why I created a "checklist" for routine/success purposes.
Coaching high school track is a passion of mine. I'll share all I've learned over the years in hopes to help you be successful.

There are a TON of special considerations coaches just don't seem to think of. These can be game-changing!
I created a youth track and field program from scratch. That program has been wildly successful.

I'll go beyond my role as a high school coach and provide amazing resources from the "next levels" of competition.
