Standing Triple Jump Sportshall Event

Standing Triple Jump athletics events are part of the Sportshall series designed for the indoor use of school age competitors. This test involves a hop, step and 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 and a met is used rather than a sandpit. This is just a brief outline of the event, for more details see official literature. A good introduction to this event is the 5 Strides Event.
