The PVIN core process is designed in deliberate, progressive steps. And although there is no “magical” approach to the pole vault, we strive to keep it simple—even for advanced vaulters. We teach the athlete to teach him/herself. We stress drills that are directly related to the vault and that can easily be adapted/utilized by the vaulter.
The following are our general “Lessons” that have been carefully developed to teach the Pole Vault.
The majority of athletes training with PVIN participate in our Pole Vault Series throughout the year:
The Pole Vault Series consist of two practices a week and the opportunity to jump in meets when they are available (Summer and Winter typically). The Pole Vault Series are limited to a maximum of 6 vaulters and PVIN typically splits the vaulters into two groups based upon experience.
PVIN also offers a personal coaching option. This option is great for specific, guided instruction. The vaulting principles that are hit in the personal coaching option are the same that are gone over in the Pole Vault Series and clinics, however, due to the one-on-one instruction, the concepts are gone into with much more depth and precision.
In order to give all of the PVIN club members the opportunity to travel and compete, we plan all meets that we will be in attendance at well in advanced. Please check the calendar periodically for the schedule and make sure to leave time in your schedules for PVIN during the summer and winter competitive seasons.
Summer meets that PVIN regularly attends include:
Winter meets that PVIN regularly attends include:
PVIN will hold periodic one-day camps throughout the year. Please check the calendar periodically and look for information on camp availability.
*The cost for meets and camps is additional and is not included in any PVIN Pole Vault Series.
