An Introduction to Track and Field 1

Track and Field 1, An Introduction to

Track and Field is the name given to a series of popular jumping, throwing, and running events that are an integral part of the Summer Olympics and interscholastic competitions throughout the world. The basic skills required to compete in Track and Field events are fundamental to many other sports and the equipment requirements for the events are minimal. In this program viewers are introduced to the myriad of modern Track and Field events, including sprints, long distance runs, hurdles, the steeplechase, and relays; the long jump, high jump, and triple jump; and the shot put, hammer throw, javelin throw, and discus throw. Viewers become familiar with Track and Field terminology, such as the standing start and crouch start, pre-zone and passing zone, runway and takeoff board, and vaulting box and landing pit. The program focuses on development of proper running techniques, and more specifically on the interrelationships among frequency, stride, body position, and speed control in the various running events. Student athletes demonstrate how to execute quick starts, clear hurdles cleanly and crisply, and pass the baton smoothly during a relay race. The program includes several training exercises prospective athletes can use to improve their reaction times, develop a sense of rhythm, and enhance their overall conditioning to ensure fun and success in Track and Field events. 00/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
