Dear Jumps Coaches,

Following on from the launch of the Sprints and Hurdles Event Group Profiles on LEARN, I am pleased to tell you that the Jumps Event Profiles have now been launched. The Introduction and Learning Outcomes sections explain the objectives of this modules, which are primarily to help coaches to build a better athlete, and prepare the athlete for competition. This information is explained in the short videos and accompanying PDF slides, split into Understanding the Performance Profiles of the Jumps Events: Part 1 and Understanding the Performance Profiles of the Jumps Events: Part 2. You can then test your knowledge by taking the Multiple Choice Test for "Understanding the Performance Profiles of Jumping Events". Links to additional resources on this subject, including technical reports on the Jumps events from the London 2012 Olympic Games are also available. 

In the near future the Long Term Development for Throws module will also be available. We will inform you as soon as this occurs. In the meantime, Alasdair Donaldson and myself have been working on the Endurance Event Profiles. We will also be beginning work on the Event Specific Training Methods modules for the Jumps and Endurance events. 

I hope these updates help in your question to further your coaching knowledge and help improve the performances of the athletes you are working with. 

Bye for now, 

Emily Parker
