Long Jump ....

This week Kahikatea have been out practising for our upcoming Athletics Day. 

Here is Harry from K16 showing the correct technique for long jumping.... remember you need...

  • a quick run up
  • to have a one foot take off as close to the front of the mat as possible
  • a two feet landing
  • a forward projection of your body - try not to put your hands down behind you to balance yourself!
  • to walk out the END of the sandpit

You can practise all of these things at home in the backyard!
