“The course allowed me to conduct better organized practices with specific goals in mind. It will help me prepare my athletes better for their competitions mentally and physically, and helped to dismiss a number of historically taught methods for coaching the horizontal jumps. It has also now allowed me to better break down the different phases of horizontal jumps and pass that along to my athletes with confidence.”
Terry Sweeney | Jumps Coach – Halifast Athletics, Canada
“The content is fantastic, this is the first of the ALTIS courses I’ve done and definitely won’t be the last.I’ve particularly liked how the content is delivered and the way explanations are given that relate to different stages of athletics careers. I work solely with 12 to 16 year olds in a Club setting, the knowledge this course has given me will massively help me and the athletes going forward.”
Andy Harrison | England Athletics Qualified Club Coach
“The ALTIS Horizontal Jumps course was the perfect solution – I could go through the content at my own pace and apply it in real time. The combination of written content, images and videos, makes it easy to consume. It’s giving me confidence in new events and furthering my coaching skills for the benefit of my athletes!”
