Youth Track and Field Drills - Power Start Drill

Purpose: Great drill to work on firing out of the blocks.

Set up the sprinter in the normal position in the starting blocks. Stand approximately 4 to 6 meters away in front of the sprinter. As the sprinter fires out of the blocks extend your arms and place them on the shoulders. If the sprinter is coming out too high, you will be able to stand them up and stop them. If they are coming out correctly they will drive you back out of the way.
