The Hop Phase
The hop phase is the first phase in the triple jump. Without performing it properly the triple jump becomes a great deal more difficult to pull off. I will go over the drills that I use to help my athletes with this part of the jump. As well, I will go over the various technical components to make sure you understand how to do the hop phase correctly.
The Best Hop Foundational Drill Out There!
The video shown goes over one of the best foundational drills (for the hop phase) out there. This drill makes things extremely simple and can be used with almost any age level! I highly recommend trying it out if you are looking to either coach this phase, or are looking to perform the phase better as an athlete.
You can find more suggestions on how to work on the hop phase by looking at my practice inventory.
