Can you learn how to do the triple jump? How far can you jump?

  • Place a starting marker on the floor
  • Stand behind the marker with your weakest foot forward
  • Take off from your front foot and land on the same foot (hop). Practice the hop a few times.
  • Next add the step in, so when you land from your hop, now step and land on your opposite foot. Practice the hop-step a few times until you feel confident
  • Add the final part, the jump! When you have landed from the step, take off from the same foot and land with both feet together. Practice your hop-step-jump until you feel confident.
