Week 3 – Standing Long Jump

Standing Long Jump

    • Standing long jump can be measured with a tape measure on any (reasonable) ground surface – on a trampoline is cheating!

    • Athletes should jump forwards from a standing position and land as far from their take-off point as they can. Athletes must start and land with two feet together. Should they fall back on landing, they should take their attempt again.

    • A responsible adult should judge the attempt and read the final measurement. Measurements should be rounded down if the athlete lands between the centimetre markers: 1.65m, 2.08m
