Description

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 takes you through a teaching progression for one of the most exciting events in track & field; the long jump. Coach Geopfert uses an easy to follow discussion along with excellent demonstrations to pinpoint the common errors that are hampering your long jumpers.

You will see athletes demonstrate each error and a series of drills used to correct the error. Geopfert supplements these drills with personal "Coaching Points" you can use to develop championship-caliber jumpers.

The majority of the drills focus on developing a consistent approach. Geopfert shows drills you can use to train your athletes to push through each step in the approach and to develop proper sprint mechanics to maximize your speed and power coming down the runway.

Correct mechanics also lead to a consistent approach. Coach Geopfert shows you how developing rhythm in your approach will keep your speed up through takeoff. You'll also see how body position at takeoff improves the distance of your jump.

To create a uniform stride pattern, Coach Geopfert demonstrates short approach jumps. The focus of these drills is to keep the correct form on a 10 step approach and then transfer that into a 12 step approach and eventually into a 14 to 16 step full approach. He also explains the rationale behind choosing the correct number of steps.

Proper in-air technique is discussed with numerous athlete demonstrations of correct and incorrect technique for the half-hitch and hitch kick techniques. These drills will help your athletes position their body's for an effective jump and landing.

The landing is covered in great detail. You will learn the importance of pressing the knees and chest together while keeping the eyes up to promote proper rotation and landing position.

Create more speed, power and distance in your jumpers by correcting common errors and improving their technique!
