Long Jump

Competitors in the U7-U8 age groups have two jumps, and jump from a 1.22 metre by 1 metres mat placed not less than 0.5 metres from the near edge of the pit. Competitors in the U9 - U11 age groups have three jumps, and jump from a 1.22 metre by 0.5 metre mat placed not less than 0.5 metres from the near edge of the pit. Competitors in the U12 - U15 age groups have three jumps and jump from a board 1.22 metres by 0.20 metres placed 1 metre from the near edge of the pit.

For a jump result to be recorded, an athlete must take off on one foot from either on or behind the take-off mat or board and land in the sandpit.

Measurement:

Off the mat: A jump is measured from the front of the imprint on the mat to the closest indentation in the sand made by the athlete. If an athlete takes off before the take-off mat, the jump shall be measured from the break in the sandpit to the back edge of the take-off mat.

Off the board: A jump is measured from the front of the board to the closest indentation in the sand made by the athlete.

A foul jump (no jump) is recorded if:

· Any part of the athlete's take-off foot crosses the front or side edge of the take-off mat or board;

· After completing a jump, the athlete walks back through the sandpit;

· In the course of landing, the athlete touches the ground outside the landing area nearer to the take-off point than the nearest break in the landing area made by the jump; or

· The athlete does not land in the sandpit.
