I use a bar jump set low abut 16 inches across the middle of the broad jump so they get the visual of jumping up and straight over the broad jump, while I call them straight over the jump, and gradually move to the side, once they are steady in that I do the broad jump exercise with a dial rod stuck in the end of the last broad jump board. so it helps them jump straight out, then turn around it. I also set one of my ring gates to the side, so once they jump they have the gate as a guide straight into me to help with the front. Even after they have the jump down well, I'll still set the whole thing up again as a reminder now and then of how to jump it so they don't develope a habit of cutting that corner off.
