Re: Rocking back fully

Owlvault, your girl is almost two shoes under at takeoff. This can be from her running with low knees or that her plant is late. 20/20's off the runway would help. You can run a tape on the track and measure out her run. Place a towel where the back of the box would be and have her run high knees. S...

Re: Prevent "Rowing"

It's hard to see but I'm sure he is under at takeoff. It's really difficult to have a nice straight trail leg swing when you are under.

Re: Sand pit or landing pad Jagodins

I use sand drills as part of our warm-up. To me, they are a great way to get the timing of the plant while reinforcing a high top hand at take-off.

Re: New vaulter, need help with pole change

Remember that vaulters before fiberglass used steel poles that did not bend. They cleared 15 feet on those pole. Good luck.

Re: Repairing Top Mat Cover

Rubber cement and strips of vinyl. Coat the pit cover and the strips. Let dry completely and stick together. That's what gill sells as a repair kit. Any boat supply store or boat cover shop should have strips you can get for cheap.
Good luck.

Re: Vaulter Regression

Good luck.

Re: Vaulter Regression

Looks to me that she is a bit late on her plant which is causing her to stride out on her last step. Work with her off the runway on getting her plant up on the second to last left step.

Good luck.
