Help! looking for a legal 210+ pole

LA/southern CA area for trade or loan. I coach a 206 pound HS student that wants to vault. Our biggest pole is a 160. Condition does not matter because it will be not be bent.

Thanks,

Re: Post pole vaulting life

Hang gliding!
Once you do your first solo you will be addicted.
Cost:
Used glider=$800 to 1,000
Used harness with reserve=$300
Lessons (optional but recommended)= $500-1,000
The concentration in the launch and landing is a lot like the vault and hang gliding is free once you have all the gear.

Re: Compton College all Comers 1-16 & 1-23

Just a heads up, the Gahr HS All-Comers did not have the polevault last time. You might want to check before you head to that meet. vaultmd, a lot of excellent polevaulters come from the area. I was at a summer all comers at Gardena HS in 1975 and a guy showed up and casually jumped 16 feet. I was t...

Compton College all Comers 1-16 & 1-23

This is an excellent place to vault. Nice facilities, experienced officials, and a good tail wind. I guess there was a high school athlete that jumped before I arrived who had a 1 hour private lesson from a D1 coach and a former elite vaulter. The runway is down hill. Here is the link: http://www.dy...

Re: Herculis - Lavillenie 5.88, Walker, Mesnil, Mazuryk 5.80

Does anyone know Lavillenie's speed in meters per second at the take-off? I haven't seen a vaulter that fast in a LONG time. I think it's possible he'll be the first 10+ mps vaulter. He does seem to have an extra gear. Here is some video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ntUvs5O54Y&eurl=http%3A%...

Re: Highbars Are Everywhere!

Good topic! Not everyone has access to gym or gymnastic equipment. I like: trees, doorframes, gates, roof overhangs, railing & stairs In my neigborhood, offical high bars are hard to find. Most have been removed from parks or schools and replaces with jungle gyms/monkeybars. This is my typical w...

Split,

I was the polevault coach for the last three years. Hopefully next year also. We have vaulters from La Serna there too but any vaulter in the district/league/area is welcome. I am always looking for help taking in the matts after practice, especially near the end of the season.

Good post! For the most part, officials I’ve come across have the athlete’s best interest at heart. In fact, I feel Southern California has some of the most knowledgeable and generous officials as well as coaches. If I can’t make an away meet, I just call our opponent’s coach and ask them to help my...
