Pole Vault Program
This is a year-round OFFICIAL USATF TRACK AND FIELD CLUB with small intermission breaks for recovery!
The club is in full swing getting ready to start the track season.
Our Coaches ALL have experience with coaching youth athletics and have a completed BACKGROUND CHECK prior to interaction with children.
** When you are looking for a club to join, please make sure that all coaches that interact with the children are background checked and an actual coach. ** Many coaches he or she are standing around and call themselves a coach, but have they been checked? Are they even a high school coach?
Athletes will learn the fundamental pole vault techniques in a safe environment. Athletes will learn how to run with a pole, vaulting skills, strength and conditioning, gymnastics, high bar drills, rope and ring drills, plyometrics, track work(sprinting), stretching, flexibility and warming up prior to working out.
No experience is necessary and we encourage giving the sport a try.
Gymnasts are encouraged to come and try our club out!
Starting August 1, 2015, we will no longer lend our poles out to non-members of Vaulter Club. If you are a member of Vaulter Club and your due’s are paid in full you will be able to use poles for meets first come first served and upon availability. You will be required to return the pole after the meet at the next practice. These poles are your responsibility and you are required to have a pole bag for transport and sign them out. One – two pole maximum and if you think about it this is just about what rent a pole companies charge a month for pole rental charges. At least this way you get to use the club as well.
*** Last three years Vaulter Club has Purchased 85 poles to bring the total to well over 130 poles ***
Progress in the pole vault relies heavily on having a large pole inventory to ensure every vaulter has access to the right poles for their ability and progression. Aside from having a good coach itself, this is the single most important issue holding back athletes from becoming the best they can be. With that said, we have poles for athletes to use, but when they break they have to be replaced.
If you break a CLUB pole, you WILL be responsible for that broken pole and required to buy a new pole for the club. (rest assured we have huge discounts on poles from pole companies – we being Vaulter Magazine) If you would like to use your own poles and not have the club pole responsibility of replacement or your school has poles for use, please bring what you need for proper progression.
Speak with us about what poles your child will need for his or her season. Buying poles for your athlete is common and our club can provide discounts for the purchase.
Vaulter Club has a total of two pole vault pits and two raised runways professionally built for your athlete.
What to bring:
- A good pair of running shoes, the old faithful ones may be worn out, so have a look and buy as needed.
- Track spikes, ask us and we will point you in the right direction, most over the counter spikes lack pole vaulting standard.
- Small notebook and pencil for writing down approach run lengths and other workout-related items.
- Sunblock for the hot months, warm clothing for colder months.
- 1-2 rolls of athletic tape, for hands, poles and other athlete uses.
