Summer Vaulting in Michigan?

Unread postby John » Mon May 09, 2005 9:48 am

Anyone know of any vaulting that takes place in Michigan over the Summer.

I am aware of the Beach Vault on the West Side of the state....anything else?

Camps? Clinics?

Our coach at Churchill High School in Livonia holds at least three camp sessions a week long each over the summer. I'm sure he'll be on here soon to give you more info.

Grand Ledge holds a summer league. Mon practices, Wed meets. Very informal but a great chance to improve your skills. They take place I believe 5:30 - 7:30 pm, mid-June to end of July.

Also, look for the Moon Vault down at Maple Valley high school put on by Coach Sessions. Another great competition. This one is held under the lights at night near the end of July. Last year winners were given "Moon Pie" medals. Kinda fun

I'll post more as details become available.

PM swtvault. He's the be-all end-all of Michigan vaulting. If he's sober, he may actually reply.
