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 finish the track season.
Our Coaches ALL have experience with coaching youth athletics and have a completed BACKGROUND CHECK prior to interaction with children.
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 two years Vaulter Club has Purchased 50 poles to bring the total to well over 100 poles ***
Progress in the pole vault relies heavily on having a large pole inventory to insure 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 purchase.
Vaulter Club has a total of two pole vault pits and two raised runways professionally built for your athlete. We are working on a third pit for the fall of 2017.
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.
- Sun block for the hot months, warm clothing for colder months.
- 1-2 rolls of athletic tape, for hands, poles and other athlete uses.
