Re: Shipping Poles

This post probably needs some updating. The flyawaypoles.com site is not running. Southwest Cargo will not accept anything over 160" long.

ISO 140-13' pole

I need a 140lb 13' pole to fill a gap in my pole progression and where one of my kids is at right now. Flex 18-20. I'm in central Kentucky, but traveling from there to Wisconsin in a week, and could pick up a pole on that trip if it were available.

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.

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...
