Technique Drills 2

A-Skip

Hurdle Bounds

Coaching Notes: Upright posture, feet together and bound with high knees. Ensure not to over rotate forward as this makes the feet land behind the centre of gravity and makes it very difficult to re-bound and causes stress and imbalance though the whole of the kinetic chain.

Power Up Drill

1,2,3 Drill (ignore false start!)

Coaching Notes: Head tall, upright stance and long back. Driving arms. Maintain position during the hold. “Power” through the feet. Listen and feel for the “hit” as the foot strikes the ground. [NB: The coach would have liked to have seen a bit more dorsiflexion of the foot.]
