Tips for learning to jump courses? (lead changes, how to quickly memorize them)

Tips for learning to jump courses? (lead changes, how to quickly memorize them)
I always take a picture of the course and memorize it while looking at the actual course
I use an app called jump off. Look at it sometime, it's really helpful for me!
Try going by colour or how the jump is decorated that's what helps me :)
Hello Lauren!
The dreaded course memorization, it's something all of us struggle with. My biggest advice is to visualize the course in your head. I've even heard friends that make a store out of it ex: butterfly oxer goes up into the cloud vertical.
This can help as well. For me I visualize the jumps and in my head put them all together in my course and kee running it.
Repeating it out loud a lot ALSO helps as it keeps your brain thinking about it "red oxer, blue vertical"
How this helps!
