Pole Vault Words - Instructional and Inspirational

Unread postby keptwoman » Mon Jun 23, 2014 2:01 pm

Hello true vaulters and coaches,
I'm just an observer. I'd like to compile a list of words that sum up the pole vault event or experience. Words that are instructional and inspirational. For a graphic design.
I think I saw this list on something from David Allen Butler: Run. Plant. Jump. Stretch. Whip. Extend. Fly. Clear.
Also found: run up, plant, take off, swing, tap, rock back, invert, pull, turn, push - but my husband tells me not everyone agrees with all those.
If you have other ideas you'd be willing to share, I will appreciate them.
Look to see them on a T-shirt or hat in the near future.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!
Jodi

He's right about that!

My inspirational words are on my tagline (below). Feel free to use them as you please.

Not everyone agrees with mine either, but you can't please everyone! :)

I remind the kid I coach that it's not how you handle the success's, but the failures that make use who we are. because we all will miss a height sooner or later. the object is to keep learning and try again.
