Athletics Ireland will commence a jumps initiative in September. This will be aimed at identifying athletes who have ability in these events. There will be a particular focus on the pole vault and triple jump. There will be a series of “open days” and athletes will be encouraged to attend with their coaches. It is anticipated that this will lead to training days for interested coaches and athletes.
