Winning Jumps & Pole Vault - Jacoby

by Neuff

Ideal book as a starting point for coaches to develop their own scheme.  Excellent replacement for Complete Book of Jumps, which is now out of print.  The authors are well known experienced USA coaches.  Although varying with each event the themes are,

  • Warm-up/cool down
  • Approach & training drill
  • Take off and drills
  • Landing & drills
  • Competition strategy
  • A sample training scheme


Part l deals with simple biomechanics.  Part II individually, considered event technique, strategy and programming for each event.
