Steve McGill is a high school hurdles coach who understands the unique challenges of coaching the hurdles. In this insightful DVD, McGill explains and demonstrates how you can train your athletes to reach their potential.

Coaching the Hurdles
McGill shares his six intangibles of becoming a successful hurdles coach and then answers the question: Who are my potential hurdlers? This segment provides invaluable tools for identifying the physical and personal attributes of successful hurdlers. You will learn how to test potential hurdlers and which sports best fit a hurdler profile.

In addition, McGill offers solutions for practice challenges such as how to manage with limited space and time and solutions for setting up expectations and goals for athletes.

Training for the Hurdles
To assist you in effectively training your hurlders, McGill lays out a three-phase seasonal planning model and a weekly workout example for each phase. This model is specifically designed with the high school season in mind.

On the track, McGill demonstrates a series of four sprint drills to fine tune sprint mechanics - the basis for great hurdling. Through each drill, McGill details the nuances related to hurdling.

McGill offers a simplified front side-back side systematic approach to teaching the hurdles and details a 1- and 3-step drill sequence to help train the technique. Included are essential strength exercises and starting techniques.

Strategies for the Hurdles
This section addresses the typical challenges of coaching the high school hurdler including: Strategies for knowing when to 4-step and when to 3-step, how to transition between the two and strategies for the 300-400 events. Includes meet day protocol for normal meets and championship meets.

This presentation is the most comprehensive hurdle instructional product that has ever been produced. It is packed full of coaching strategies that address the real challenges of coaching high school hurdlers.

I gave this video to one of my assistant coaches. He wrote me this email:

"Hey,

The Hurdle DVD from this set is garbage. All that it includes is some North Carolina high school coach doing a monologue for 72 minutes. It is sort of a pep talk for coaches and insights that are in themselves not unhelpful, but what is not included is the most important things. That would be demonstrations of drills, proper movement over the hurdles etc. In fact the DVD has NO demonstrations at all.

I think you should send it back and complain.

It will be great if we can find a solid hurdle DVD or two.

The High Jump and Sprints DVD’s are both very good. I am about to watch the Long Jump and later Sunday I will push through the 3 hour middle distance DVD. If the hurdle DVD was the only bad one – the package was still a good deal in my opinion.

Dan"

I'll leave this here for you all.

While I know that Coach McGill has a good reputation for his knowledge of the hurdle events, this video was very weak. I was quite disappointed that there was no technical content and no workout specifics. Mostly Coach McGill talking to the camera about how he runs his high school program. Not of much value to anyone wanting to expand their knowledge on the event. I really wished I could have my money back.

While Coach McGill has enjoyed great success as a high school coach and has a terrific website, I was underwhelmed by this video. The overall quality of the video is weak and the content incomplete compared to similar videos on this site by Gary Winkler or Will Freeman.

Not a great hurdle video. Hard to believe but video didn't go into any detail explaining lead leg or trail leg position or action. Some drills not performed correctly, the trail leg was pointing down with foot dangling down toward ground and not out to side.
