Standing Long Jump Sportshall Event

The standing Long Jump athletics event are part of the Sportshall series designed for the indoor use of school age competitors. This is a brief outline of the event, for more details see official literature.

This test involves a two-footed jump from a standing position, and tests the co-ordination and leg strength of the participants. It differs from the outdoor traditional long jump in that there is no run up allowed, two feet instead of one is used for takeoff, and a landing mat is used rather than a sand pit.
