Re: Inconsistent vaults and top arm trouble.

For a plant that is under, you can place a mini hurdle on the ramp just past where you should take off from. This provides a visual input of where you should be taking off from, and you can use this to get used to the feel of taking off correctly. Like any drill, this has limitations - you can becom...

Re: What do college coaches look for

This will be different for each coach, somewhat based on if they are at a D1, D2, D3, or NAIA school, but also based on how established their vaulting program is, how much the head coach and school supports vaulting, etc. As an example, I coach at a D3 school. Therefore, no scholarships. Short of ex...

Re: Bracing at takeoff

There is a fine line between bracing and blocking. Many will argue this is not a good, but I'll not get into that. Either way, instead of leading with your chest, in your effort to brace you are hunching your shoulders forward, and that is counter productive for a swing, and a bad habit to develop. ...

Re: Any advice would be great( swing, run, plant)

First, you are planting under. I can tell this because your pole is bent prior to you leaving the ground. If you can correct this by moving back the start of your run, great, otherwise, you are in for a lot of plant box drills, etc. The next thing is your trail leg is not straight as your go into yo...

Re: Any advice welcome

Its really hard to see what he is doing because of where the camera is. Try filming from the side, and about 5-10' back from the bar.

I think on the first video I'm seeing a top arm that is not straight, and if so, plant drills are the place to start. Better video, please.

Re: Help, i can't get vertical when moving up a pole.

OK I'll give this a stab. First, this should probably be on the video analysis board. Next, the video you posted does not show your run-up. Even though your question is related to the top of the vault, these problems are commonly caused earlier in the vault From what I can see, it looks like your pl...

Re: new to coaching pole vault

Make sure you know the technical model that you will teach. When I started coaching PV, all I knew to do was look at video of Olympians and then see how close I could get my kids to that. I suppose that wasn't the worst way to start, but I've spent a lot of time fixing problems I've caused because I...
