What is the triple jump pattern?

A Child's Game

It's just a hop, skip, and a jump to the pit! When beginning jumpers are starting to learn the triple jump, the hop, skip, and jump pattern is the easiest cue for them to remember and follow.

For beginning jumpers:

  • hop = same foot to same foot
  • skip = one foot to the other
  • jump = one foot to two feet
