    Hurdles should be placed the other way round. As a level 2 multi skills coach we are taught to place hurdles with round side pointing away from direction of jump especially when working with children as they will then roll over on the rounded side if caught. The way they are in the video can cause a nasty accident and I have seen this happen with a child getting a nasty ankle injury. I use low hurdles with 4 and 5 year old's and not had an injury yet though they do not always manage to clear the hurdles.
