The main goals of our club are to promote and teach the pole vault as well as providing supplemental instruction to athletes and coaches in a way that allows for safety and success to go hand-in-hand. Our year-round training allows us to let athletes progress naturally at their own comfort level without having to hastily prepare them for meets. We stress step by step skill progressions with a safety first motto. Our vaulters are not allowed to advance to more difficult skills, higher handgrips or longer poles without first mastering the basic fundamental techniques and movements. It is our hope that in exposing athletes and coaches to the proper progressions in a low-stress environment that the vaulter can maximize their potential without feeling the pressure of meet-based performances. Our competitions are with gravity and crossbars – not with other vaulters.
