Athletics 365: Section 19 - Challenges

19. Triple Jumps And Standing Triple Jumps

Multiple Jumps such as Triple Jump, Standing Triple Jump and variations of Hopscotch require good coordination and rhythm. The ability to combine two or more jumping actions under control requires the athlete to correctly coordinate their body movement while maintaining rhythm through each phase.

Athletes should try to maintain equal phases and not overstretch.

Athletes should also demonstrate all Long Jump technical competencies for their stage of progression, demonstrating the ability to take off either leg.
