Event Specialization

  • Choose an event area you want to be in, or think you can be good at
  • What are your strengths? (speed, endurance, power, jumping) Each strength leads to a specific event area
  • The learned (technical) events (hurdles, jumps, pole vault, throws, and even distances) take time to master—you must be persistent!

*Be careful not to try and master too many technical events in the first year—they are time consuming.

**If you are a sprinter you should attempt to jump or hurdle. If you are fast in the 100m you can probably also long jump!

BE COMPETITIVE – SET GOALS – TRY NEW THINGS – GO FOR IT!
