High Jump Help's mission
"To help coaches understand the high jump event, so that their athletes may reach their potential."
Over years of coaching the founder, Cory White discovered that most high jumpers he coached were coached incorrectly in the high jump.
He discovered that the least important part of the high jump was focused on the most!
He sought out to provide proven resources in the high jump event so that any coach could help an athlete reach their potential.
Coach White's mission came alive when he was having a conversation with a new high school coach.
The high school coach was desperate for simple tips to help her coach her talented high jumper, who had already competed at the state championships the year before.
This coach said to Coach White,
"I have a very talented high jumper who has
made it to state, and I am afraid to mess her up!"
He quickly explained 4 parts of the high jump to look for and so the 4 Baby Steps of High Jump were born.
