Tip of the Week

Do you like movies? If you are a hurdle coach, you had better like them because you’ll need to watch a lot of film! Hurdle coaching is very technical. Not only do you have to be able to explain, possibly demonstrate, and know what hurdlers need to do with their limbs and for training, you also need to be able to visualize the small or sometimes big things that hurdle athletes are doing that are holding them back from progressing.

These things are often difficult to recognize at full speed, so filming athletes and critiquing their technique by viewing and showing film will allow you, the coach, to make sure you get it right, and will help the athletes get a picture of what they do need to correct.
