COACHES ATTENDING WITH ATHLETES:

All athletes are highly encouraged to attend with a coach. The curriculum is focused on athletes at that are at a minimum competing at the juvenile level in Regional / Sectional / U.S. Championships, and consistently perform double and triple jumps.

 

However, coaches of ALL levels, who are members of PSA, are welcome to attend. There are no restrictions on coaching level. 

 

If a coach does bring athletes, effort will be made to place their students in the same group (assuming that they are comparable age and skill level), so the coach will be able to observe them as much as possible.  Free time will be allotted in the Coaches Education schedule for coaches to observe their students' classes on Friday and Saturday.  

 

TENTATIVE FACULTY to INCLUDE*:

World-class faculty from around the world, in addition to sports science experts and national level officials.
