I'm a new middle school track and field coach doing middle distance and long distance. I am also doing long jump and triple jump. Are there any practices, drills, or websites that would be good. Thanks so much!

Coach Thomas,

We have a few drills that you can view at www.y-coach.com/CD/Track_and_Field_Drills.htm.

In addition I would recommend the following track and field instructional videos.

Training for Track and Field: Jumping Events DVD
Training for Track and Field: Distance Running DVD
Training for Track and Field: Sprints, Hurdles and Relays DVD
Training for Track and Field: Throwing Events DVD
