Summer Vaulting - Near Chicago

Unread postby patybobady » Mon Apr 15, 2013 8:57 pm

As a fellow Track and Field coach, I feel your pain of a poor start to our outdoor season in terms of weather. As a pole vault enthusiast, however, it is always saddening to see the end of the season right around the corner, especially with so many Track and Field athletes reaching their potential only to see the season end and everything come to a grinding halt…

But wait! It doesn’t have to. Your pole vaulters can come to Elmwood Park High School (8201 W. Fullerton, Elmwood Park, IL 60707) twice a week and workout, run, vault, drill, etc.

On Tuesday and Thursday nights, sadly Maine South Thursday night vaulting has come to an end, from 5pm-8pm, join us for Flight Nights. Our pits will be open to any and all who wish to come continue/try out this great event. For some of you, your school does not offer the vault, and this is a great and easy way to introduce the event, and hopefully could lead to earning some available team points in meets, especially the conference meet!

We have 2 pits available and an arsenal of poles, however it is recommended that vaulters bring their own, clearly marked for identification purposes (we do have limited space for storage of poles). The cost is $5 a session and $75 for the entire summer (which includes a camp t-shirt). T-shirts will be for sale as well.


I have the fliers and insurance waivers, which need to be filled out and signed prior to participating - JUST EMAIL OR PM ME FOR THEM... Any and all are welcome – from jr. high athletes curious about Track and Field’s greatest event, to all-staters and collegiate national qualifiers to masters vaulters who are still living the dream at 50 years of age…


Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Hello,

My name is Trent Schaffer and I am currently going to be a senior at Purdue University next semester. The reason I am contacting you is that I have recieved an internship in the Chicago area for the whole summer and would love to be able to get back into vaulting. I havnt jumped in a couple years and the college lifestyle has really contributed to me being out of shape. I would love to be able to get back into jumping for it was the greatest sport I participated in while in highschool and I would really enjoy picking it back up this summer to give me something fun to do while in Chicago. If you could forward any information about this summer that would be fantastic

Thanks, Trent Schaffer

Both forms are there. And welcome back to vaulting! I have a former D-III All-American helping and getting back into the swing of things helping too. I'm getting back too, so you're not alone.

Feel free to email me at sheridanp@epcusd401.org - let me know where you're interning/staying.

I have a daughter who will be a freshman next year and is interested in pole vaulting. She has been in club gymnastics the last 8 years but has decided to try other sports. She is in track this year and she loves it. I think pole vault woould lend itself well to my daughters speed, strength and gymnastics background.

I'm looking for a summer camp or instructor that can introduce her to pole vaulting.

Bring her by! If she wants to come early one day or two, I'll come out early...
