Cover: 20 drills & techniques for teaching the triple jump
20 Drills & Techniques for Teaching the Triple Jump
with Jeremy Fischer,
Head Coach and Lead Instructor at the Chula Vista High Performance Training Center/USA Track and Field;
USATF Level 3 Certified, holds Level 2 Certificates in the sprints, jumps and throws and currently serves as the Level 2 (event specific school) Jumps Lead Instructor;
former University of Oklahoma Men's and Women's Jumps and Multi's Coach; 2007 Midwest Region Men's Jumps/Combined Events Coach of the Year; All-American and All-Big Ten jumper for the University of Wisconsin (He also coaches Olympian & medalist Will Clay, 6x National Champion Amanda Smock)

Jeremy Fischer, head coach at the USATF High Performance Training Center, teaches you how to understand and fix common errors every coach deals with when working with triple jumpers.

With demonstrations from All-American and Olympic trials finalist Toni Smith, Coach Fischer dissects every aspect of the triple jump, including: the approach, establishing marks, acceleration, transition, maximum velocity and speed mechanics.

Coach Fischer emphasizes body awareness, body position, postural integrity, and learning how to run off of the board. Through the use of over 20 drills, Coach Fischer takes the triple jump from the approach, to the runway, to the board and then to the landing. These drills will teach the athlete to:

  • Focus on reactive strength
  • How to get into position to finish the jump
  • Learn forward rotation
  • Maintain posture
  • Have a free leg
  • Learn timing

Not only do you get drills, but more importantly you get the insight, knowledge and technique to better pinpoint flaws every triple jump athlete seems to struggle with.

Establish an Effective Approach

Starting consistently out of the back of your mark is one of the most overlooked parts of the triple jump. Coach Fischer breaks down the specifics for executing a more effective approach and how to establish jump marks. He explains acceleration, transition, to maximum velocity sprint mechanics and how to fix common problems in the approach phase of the triple jump.

Board to Box Drill

One of the biggest gaps limiting the triple jump athlete is an inability to push off the board. This requires proper hip displacement to achieve greater horizontal distance. This drill teaches athletes how to keep their take off leg underneath their center of mass while triple extending through the entire leg system, which promotes a more effective jump off the board.

1-2-3 Drill

This drill teaches athletes how to maintain vertical body positioning with proper thigh angles for increased vertical push against the track, which will improve horizontal speed.

Coach Fischer explains the outside factors that must be accounted for to build the compete triple jump athlete. These include rest, recovery, nutrition and pre-habilitation. Many coaches overlook these factors, which limits their jumpers' overall success.

Coach Fischer delivers one of the most comprehensive and concise teaching tools to build a more competitive triple jump athlete.

Cover: becoming a champion: triple jump for girls' track & field
Becoming a Champion: Triple Jump for Girls' Track & Field
with Stacey Smith, Baylor University Assistant Coach;
9x All American and 1999 NCAA Champion in the Triple Jump at Baylor, former member of the US National Team

Stacey Smith uses her experience as both a coach and competitor to teach the triple jump from warm-up to practice, from competition to cool down, in this outstanding track DVD.

Coach Smith introduces the concepts necessary to be a successful triple jumper. She then covers warming up, including drills and how to incorporate sprints into your warm-up. Head Circles, Arm Swings, and Trunk Circles are just some of the drills that are covered. The importance of putting in 30-45 minutes to properly prepare your body is stressed because of the explosive power needed to triple jump.

As with the long jump, triple jumpers are sprinters first and controlling that speed is the focus of this section. A-Skip, Karaoke, and High Knees are some of the drills used to develop controlled speed to keep the jump horizontal and not vertical.

The approach, which is the main part of the jump, is covered from the beginning to end. Coach Smith covers how to teach a proper approach, showing numerous drills using both the track and run-way. Smith puts it all together by teaching the proper way to execute the three phases of the actual jump (the hop, the step and the jump). Smith offers simple, effective coaching cues and drills that drive home the point that The Hop is the crucial point to the triple jump, The Step is the most difficult part, and The Jump just follows.

Along with technique, Coach Smith offers over a dozen drills to increase the strength and form of your triple jumpers. In addition, she discusses meet day providing you with a series of hints to help manage your jumpers in competition.

Coach Smith provides over 20 drills that cover the triple jump from start to finish. Having a large selection of different drills which develop the entire athlete is key to successful triple jumping.

Arkansas Track and Field Presents Common Errors and Corrections Triple Jump
with Travis Geopfert, University of Arkansas Assistant Coach (field events and multi-events);
Decathlon coach for the 2009 USA vs. Germany Thorpe Cup; former UNI Head Coach, 2009 MVC Indoor and Outdoor Champions

University of Arkansas Assistant Coach Travis Geopfert identifies and diagnoses the most common mistakes athletes make when triple jumping. With demonstrations by 4x All-American Tarik Batchelor, Geopfert walks you through the poor technique that hampers performance and provides drills to correct the technique. He supplements these drills with "Coaching Points" that he uses to develop championship jumpers.

The most common error in triple jumping is an inconsistent approach. A consistent start provides a more consistent approach and increases your chances of hitting your mark at the toe board. This is accomplished by creating a uniform stride pattern. Coach Geopfert explains the rationale behind choosing the correct number of steps.

Lengthening each phase of the approach is covered and Coach Geopfert stresses only giving your athlete as much speed as they can handle. This is especially important early in your athletes' development.

The majority of the drills in this video focus on getting full power out of each step down the runway and how to keep your speed, rhythm and form once you take off. In addition to the approach, Geopfert teaches bounding to help incorporate the arms into the jump, the step and skip phase, and how to put it all together.

Not only does Geopfert deliver drills and techniques, he explains the reasons why he uses these particular drills, all relating back to correcting movements which hamper performance. Order now and provide your athletes with the tools they need to reach their potential!
