Re: Finalised itinerary for Altius clinics

It's too bad you're not coming to the east coast; I wish I could come as a coach this time!

Re: PV Pit Almost ruled illegal

What do you mean by "hang over the entire pit"?

Re: Poles for beginners

Thanks Alan! Sorry I didn't reply; we ended up getting poles through one of my girls's other coaches and renting from the school we practice at. My 5'2" girl got 6'6" at a meet; I think she's a 9th grader this year? She may be in 8th. I have another taller girl, 10th grade, who got 11' at ...

Re: Poles for beginners

What should a 5'2" 119 and a 5'5" 120 be on? (Please don't get on me about waiting this long about poles; I can only go to once practice a week due to school and they've cancelled the last two. It's been an odd February.) In the meantime, we're using the school that we practice at's pole f...

Re: Art project

It's all right; I just took a vague photo of a pole online. I'll post photos soon, hopefully. I wasn't allowed to tie in the new records (as per professor's decision) but it still looks pretty awesome.

Re: Pole Vault Helmets

I see no problem with them. Now, I don't think they should be mandatory, but at the very least they can't hurt too much. Yes, they can make some injuries worse but I've also seen a few people get concussions. Not sure how much it would have helped in those cases but I've also seen so many people use...

Re: Online Vault Analysis Site Launched

No offense but why would anyone pay $85 to have their vault critiqued when they can post a video to this website and get multiple opinions on it?

Re: altius in the USA

1-FABULOUS! Let me know if there are any near NC/SC, please! Unfortunately, while I would likely be able to scrounge up athletes and a pit and equipment, not sure about the rest. 2-That book and DVD were the best thing that happened to my vaulting knowledge. They clearly explained the details and I ...

Re: Steve Smith

I was under the impression that it was impossible to jump off a skateboard! We tried it one time at my high school because well, that's what high school guys do. We tried it a few times before my math-centric coach said "Guys, I'm no sure the physics here are quite right." They almost face...

Art project

All right, all ya'll who know who I am know I have a knack for attempting to tie vault into the rest of my life. Anyway, for my art assignment, I have to make a lithograph about something historical in my college's county. Because I have coached athletes and we practiced over at the SC School for th...

Re: Which states have middle school vault?

NC does not have middle school vault, except maybe in a few select areas. We did not have it in my middle school and that's my state.
