Curriculum Guide for the Long Jump and Triple Jump
with Tim Cawley,
Colorado State University Long Jump and Triple Jump Coach

Tim Cawley presents over 50 drills used to develop championship long/triple jumpers. Using on track demonstration, Coach Cawley educates you on the how's and why's of horizontal jumps training. Cawley focuses on the technical aspects of teaching the approach, how to work acceleration mechanics and top speed mechanics, how to cover plyometric drills, and how to long jump and triple jump.

Coach Cawley has his athletes demonstrate easy to follow drills that any athlete can use. These drills cover every aspect of the jump's and can be used as a guide to becoming a championship jumper. Beginning with the Approach and the common elements in the long and triple jumps, Cawley demonstrates how to use your warm-up drills to teach proper running and jumping form.

Moving on to Top Speed Mechanics, Coach Cawley emphasizes the need for "triple extension" in order for your athletes to maximize their biomechanics in their approach. With Transition and Stabilizing Drills, Cawley demonstrates the proper elements necessary for an explosive take-off. He explains how to properly teach all phases of the long jump, including the landing, and how to use the athletes natural reactions and tendencies to put themselves into proper position for the approach take-off and landing.

Coach Cawley also teaches you how to coach the Triple Jump, with both the similarities and differences in the Long Jump, utilizing fifteen different drills to train the different mechanics needed to be successful in each phase of the triple jump. This progression is a great way to build beginning jumpers, and he shows how to use these drills to reinforce good habits for veteran triple jumpers. Coach Cawley's video is an excellent resource for both beginning and veteran coaches of the long and triple jump. His common sense approach keeps practice lively and fun, and his teaching technique is clear with great coaching points! Athletes and coaches alike will be given an outline as to what it takes to improve their horizontal jumping skills.

TD-02579C: with Dennis Barker,
Augsburg College Track & Field / Cross Country Coach

This instructional DVD is loaded with 28 drills for speed and power training for the 800 meters. Coach Dennis Barker stresses that this race requires speed, strength and endurance to be successful. The first set of drills can be used as a dynamic warm-up and to reinforce proper technique. Tall running form is necessary and the stride creates a line of power into the track. Fatigue causes runners to lose form and slow down. The next set of drills are designed to improve endurance and strength during the pre-season conditioning period and focus on the whole range of motion. These drills stress good posture; work the glutes, hams and lower back region; emphasizes good sprinting posture; and strengthens the sprinting muscles. All of these dynamic drills will lead to the Jump Circuit later in the season. Pedestal exercises are the next set of drills, and they focus on strengthening the core. The final progression in Barker's 800 meter training program is hill sprinting and bounding. Coaches can learn how sprinters in the 800 meters can improve the strength, speed, change of pace, acceleration and how to put a strong efficient force down into the ground in their finishing kick.
