My Students

The students-athletes here are enrolled at a Title I school with large concentrations of low-income students that already receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting student’s educational goals. On the other hand, the outlet I see for many of the students-athletes here are through sports, especially running. The majority of my students, albeit young, are extremely talented runners and they have an opportunity to go to the university on an athletic scholarship for the sport of cross-country and/or track and field.

My Project

Having the sets of hurdles gives me the opportunity as a coach to implement better training regimens for my runners. For instance, I could have them run over hurdle. The hurdle spacing can teach them how to improve their running economy, especially by increasing stride length.

In running, stride length is important, but so is lower limb strength and with these hurdle sets I could implement a plyometric regimen, where my athlete's jump over the hurdles to increasing lower body power and strength.

All in all, these hurdles would be a great commodity for these student athlete's to use in their training.
