Pole Vaulting Opportunities

I just finished my one and only season of vaulting in high school. I started my senior year and was only able to clear 6.6, I was very close to clearing 7 at the last meet. The reason why I didn't get much higher was because I have stress fractures in both my legs, and a sprained foot. Despite all t...

Curious...Injuries

I'm just curious how many of you guys have been injured or are injured from vaulting. Right now I've got two stress fractures and people tell me that I'm crazy to still be vaulting. (Technically I shouldn't be hey who's gonna stop me, it's my senior year with three meets left.)

Re: Getting onto bigger pole?

I would do a couple just getting used to the pole, and then do fulls to get your timing down. Good luck at state. :D

Swing and Turn

This is my first year and my last year vaulting. I've been vaulting consistently at 6.6 but I really want to get to 7.6 by the end of the season in a couple of weeks, unfortunately. I have no real coach, even though there is a senior who has been vaulting for four years who helps the other vaulters ...
