Coach Hoskisson's student athletes have earned conference championships and All American awards at each of the levels that he has coached. Progressions for Coaching the Vertical Jumps systematically presents each event from the approach, to the takeoff, to bar clearance and provides the coach with sample trouble spots and an assortment of remedies to work through them with their athletes. The drills and sample training plans sections include a wide variety of each to help you construct a sound training plan for your vertical jumpers.
