30 year NCAA Division 1 Track & Field Coach, Dr. Rick McGuire, describes how you must have confidence in order to deliver your best performance. The athlete must focus on his or her performance, not on the race outcome. Your best performance gives you the best chance of the best outcome.

Confidence

The number one reason for losing is because the athlete did not deliver his or her best performance.

Improve Your Landing to Increase Your Distance

By nate.landas - Last updated: Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Kansas State Director of Cross Country and Track and Field, Cliff Rovelto, shares a drill that teaches athletes how to have an active landing rather than a passive landing. Coach Rovelto explains how proper landing technique can prevent injuries and extend your jump six to eight inches.

Teaching the Landing

Setup: The athlete places a chair in the long jump pit and sits in it. The athlete sits in the position where the upper body is vertical, the legs are extended as much as possible. The toes are dorsiflexed and the arms are alongside the hips. The athlete then drives the arms and hips forward. Once the heels make contact with the sand, the athlete lift the legs, rather than letting the feet dig into the sand. The coach is behind holding the chair, and pulling it out as the athlete drives forward.

Improve Your Shot Put by Mastering the “Simon Says” Drill

By nate.landas - Last updated: Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Brian Forrester, the University of Akron Throws Coach, shows you a drill that takes all of the concepts and drills, and combines them to challenge the athlete. Coach Forrester explains that the more advanced the athlete, the more advanced the drill can be.

Simon Says

Setup: The athlete starts in the beginning position for the shot put in the ring. The coach tells the athlete a specific position or drill. The athlete listens to the coach, and quickly accomplishes the drill. This is a good drill to simulate the reaction time a thrower has in competition.
