High school athletic departments need grants to help pay the expenses for football teams, baseball teams, soccer teams, basketball teams and other sports teams. Funding is needed for travel, equipment, uniforms and field maintenance. While schools do support athletic teams, more money is often needed from outside sources. High schools can find funding for athletics from a variety of organizations, including local Major League Baseball (MLB) teams and local National League Football (NFL) teams. Area community and corporate foundations also provide support for athletics and school programs.

6. Repeat same steps til you get to the end of the cones. Now you’re ready to jump over the second cone.
7. Bend the knees to a 90 degree angle and extend your arms behind you.
4. Turn around and keep going until the time is up. EXPLODE off the ground over the first cone and thrust your arms up for extra height. When you land, land like a cat. Set up 3 cones (or shoes if you don’t have cones) about 2 to 3 feet apart in a line.
2. You should not be able to hear yourself hit the ground. Stand in place in front of the first cone, feet shoulder width apart.
3. This is a good one to get a good sweat going.
Some people like to use reps and other like to use time. I personally prefer timed exercises, because that way you are able to improve and do more repetitions in the future. Height is key here! Not speed!
5. Use your legs to absorb the impact and bring your knees back to the 90 degree position. Anyway here is one of my favorites:

Meanwhile Saunders’ opponent hit the mat with such force that he was rendered unconscious as well. The opponent’s legs arced through the air with frightening velocity and smashed against the side of the referee’s head, knocking him out cold. After circling each other on their feet for a few moments, Townsend secured his opponent’s head and arm and executed a beautiful and supremely violent hip throw.
