More running aframes!

I have two videos uploaded on youtube that show our latest running a-frame training. The one on the 13th was better than the one today. This could be for a couple of reasons:

1. I was working on the right today, and I had spent more time working off of the left previously. I don't think it would be an issue unless it is a preferred lead leg thing and she is trying to change up at the last minute...except I can't tell, so if anyone out there can see that, let me know.

2. I had work on it at the building the other day on the aframe in the building, but I think that the slats are too big for her to bounce comfortably.

3. We just hadn't had a chance to work on it as much lately.

I left it at the same height ( ~30") and have a jump set up at the apex still. I think I will need to use something like that for a while to help her learn to jump up and over the top.

-I have been throwing her chuck-it ball afterwards, that seems to be working well.
-I haven't really put any handling maneuvers in it yet.
-She was 5/9 (55%) - not as high a percent of success as I would like....hmmm

Any thoughts on how to help her "get it" would be great.

I think that lowering it or putting the grid back down, might help some, but it doesn't address how to help her get this height, or higher ones.
