Re: To Club or Not to Club, this is the question

Myself and a couple of other coaches have just started one in our town. The liability wasn't actually too bad for us. We made the club through USATF so that we would have their insurance coverage. Also, we made sure to talk with our AD's about it from the get go so they would make sure we were doing...

Re: Used Poles, Used Standards and Weather Cover for Sale

What is your location? What size is your Richey pit cover?

Thanks

Re: Wanted: Small Pole Vault Poles // Willing To Travel From MN

I appreciate the offer, but it probably wouldn't be worth it to ship the pole. We have that pole already as well.

Thanks again though.

Wanted: Small Pole Vault Poles // Willing To Travel From MN

Hi there, I am starting a program from the ground up and need to find some small poles for my younger female vaulters. I have a 10' 110 and a 12' 110, that is about it. I would be interested in anything that is 120 or less and/or 12' or less. I live in Rochester, MN but am willing to do a little tra...

Re: Coach needed

I vaulted at the Flying Dragons Pole Vault Club when I was in high school. Coach Cockerham is a great guy and a good coach as well. I'd recommend trying it out. Their results speak for themselves. They have had two guys go over 17 feet and several over 15.

Re: Yes, another getting inverted post!

... she should keep pressure on the pole with her arms throughout the whole jump. There's an easy way to vault, and there's a hard way. Any time you're using your muscles (rather than swinging) is the hard way. So I don't think she should " keep pressure on the pole with her arms ... ". K...

Re: Yes, another getting inverted post!

It seems like she has a lot of things going pretty well for someone who's fairly new to the event. I would say the biggest thing I would tell her is that she should keep pressure on the pole with her arms throughout the whole jump. She will need to "roll her butt up" when she swings up, bu...

Refurbish/Improve Used Pit Condition

Hi everybody, I started coaching at a different high school this year. They have an awesome Richey pit, which I love, but they have an old pit that was left out in the elements here in Minnesota (hence the NEW Richey pit). It's looking like they will let me just take the pit because they are just go...

Re: Any Street Vaults in MN, IA, WI

Awesome! I am stoked to see that pub vault. I e-mailed their people about jumping in the Men's B or C categories. Not sure yet if there are certain restrictions with that.

Any other meets?

Any Street Vaults in MN, IA, WI

Hi there. I moved to Rochester, MN about a year and a half ago. I am coaching pole vault at a local high school and would love to give some of my vaulters the experience of a good street vault. Are there any street vaults that are already happening within a few hours of here? I'm toying with the ide...
