We started our day off with our team/individual photos.  It took a long time due to how large our team is, but was a fun experience.  

After we finished up our photos we had a quick meeting, and then went outside for a speed-focused day.

This time around I star...

We are so lucky to have a parent take pictures at every one of our meets!  Dan has done an amazing job over the years, and has been vital in not only helping me to put amazing pictures up on the site, but also to catch things I may have missed otherwise from a mechanic...

We had our 2nd meet of the season on Saturday and I thought it went GREAT for the jumpers!

Last Saturday was a little nerve wracking for me because it was the first meet of the season and I was unsure the jumpers (triple jumpers especially) were ready.  This week though...

Sorry this one is a little later than usual.  This past weekend was extremely busy. 

Day 16 was a recovery day for the athletes that were set to compete on Saturday and a lactic acid day for everyone that wasn't.  

I started the day working with a very small n...

Tonight was an X-factor day.  A lot of really great explosive movements were used/tested.

Tonight was a speed day.  Just like Monday, I was given a group during the sprint block to work on approaches.  This time around it was the girls first, and they did GREAT!  Their consistency and awareness of the board is coming along nicely and will undoubtedly serve...

Tonight's practice was another X-factor day.  So, in light of that I decided to work with triple jumpers again today.  The first thing we did was work on "baby bounding".  Basically it's bounding but with very little emphasis on height or explosiveness.  The foot conta...

 This past weekend in Whitewater the coaching staff and I had some discussions about approaches in the jumps.  We had a lot of scratches, and I told the head coach we simply weren't ready.

With all that we've add this year (the big one being our new mental strength...

The meet was a "mixed bag".  There were some accomplishments that I feel will fuel our jumps program moving forward; and there were some questions that I spent time reflecting upon so that we can move forward in an effort to maximize potential.

First up was the boy...

Day 11 was a recovery day for those that compete tomorrow (Saturday), and a "lactate" day for those that are not competing.  The recovery day was a reward for the hard work and dedication the athletes we've chosen to take to Whitewater, while the lactate workout is for...
