For a 15-YO, with just one year of vaulting, you are doing fantastic. Clearly you are getting some quality coaching. Because I strongly believe that you are being coach well, I'm not sure why you are asking for advice here. A pit side coach, especially one whom you work with regularly, is way better than what we may be able to see and comment on from a single video.

Here's what I see - you are not swinging well post-takeoff. Specifically, the trail leg plays a key role in the success of the vault once you leave the ground. Kirk has recently posted a great thread on this very subject and it applies to your video perfectly.

I also recently commented on another vaulter's video with similar (but more severe) swing issues. You may like the videos I linked to there. viewtopic.php?f=39&t=54938

Thank you for the quick response,

I do believe that I have a good coach, however I just thought it would be nice to get another persons perspective. Also another problem I saw with my vault was the collapse of the left arm, could you please clarify is this is a major issue or will it get better over time.


In relation to the swing, I am having trouble completing the swing, into a proper inversion since I moved up poles. Could you possible recommend so drills that would help to rectify the situation as.

It will get better over time, so don't worry about it.

Focus on a long, circular trail leg. Work on this on the highbar first, then the pole.

Good luck!
