Age: 18
Grade: 12
How long vaulting: 4 years
Pole: 14'1 175
Grip: 13'3
PR: 12'6
Bar Attempted in video: 11'6 ... sp=sharing

My high school career has come to a close, but I would like to continue vaulting. The walk-on standard at the college I am attending is 15'. I did not have a pole vault coach in high school, just received a few tips from other coaches every once in a while. I am planning on training 4 days per week this summer with a good coach. Is it possible for me to hit that 15' mark by the end of summer? If not, do I have potential to go higher? Even if I do not clear 15' I would still like to continue vaulting, as I really enjoy it. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a link to the advice I've already given you.

After seeing your clearance over that 11-6 bar, I can't understand why your PR is only 12-6. :confused: Why? :confused:

Yes, you have good potential.

Good luck!

Run. Plant. Jump. Stretch. Whip. Extend. Fly. Clear. There is no tuck! THERE IS NO DELAY!
