A Quick Thought Before I Break Down The Jump...
I'd like to take a moment to advocate for the triple jump and explain the processes that I went through to get where I am as a triple jump coach.
First off, let me start by saying there was a point in time when I was extremely "scared" to coach this event. I knew nothing about it and avoided getting fully invested due to fear and a lack of knowledge. If this is you (coach or athlete) please get to know this jump!!
I can now say (after extensive research, collaborations, etc.) that this is by far my favorite of the two jumps, as well as an event I feel I have thrived in as a coach over the past 5-6 years. This success has been due in large part to the drills I've chosen. They are easy, self-explanatory, and set athletes up for success quite nicely. Until I found these specific drills though, I was absolutely lost.
Take your time, look over all aspects I provide you with on this site, research for other credible information sources online, buy books, watch videos, and leave the excuses behind you! It's time to dominate the triple jump - are you ready?!?!
