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!
