3 Of My Favorite Hurdles Posts

Posted by Latif Thomas

It’s not easy to teach most high school kids how to hurdle well.

Or, I should say, I have a hard time developing consistent, aggressive and technically sound hurdlers.

I think the difficulty in teaching it explains why there are usually about 10 times as many 100 meter runners on a team as there are hurdlers.

If you can figure out some fundamentals, you can really do a lot of damage at scoring meets.

With that in mind, here are 3 of my favorite hurdles specific posts from the site, all from USATF Master Coach Tony Veney:

  1. How to Fix 6 Common Mistakes in the Hurdles
  2. How to Teach Kids to 3 Step
  3. Annual Planning for High School Hurdlers
