Re: Pole progression and purchasing

Based on what my daughter has done from freshman to junior year I would say it is a good bet your boy will handle the weight. What sucks about HS jumping is that kids as they get transitioning to beging invert is that when the are on a low hold on a long stick the pole is not giving back as it was d...

Re: Take-Off and Reverse-C Suggestions?

keeping the pole moving when you are inverted with a rowing motion will help you keep the pole close to your body on the top end when you move to finish. you lose the pole a bit on the top end because of it. move the pole and Bubka

We teach pole vaulting in steps because of all that jumpers have to learn and take in but in reality it all needs to be one smooth continuous motion smooth and in time with the pole. As ...

Re: Anybody have a 14' 210 (or any 210) for HS boy?

The weight label will not keep a kid from breaking a pole! bad form and coaching will. get rid of the weight label rule for high school or give a test option for coaches who can recognize when a jumper is reaching the limit of the pole...... and make coaches who are clueless abide by the rule. I hat...

Re: Poles for Beginners

yeah lots on this subject. First any pole will work if it is around the kids weight and not to long when straight sticking warm up and drills. when kids first get jumping most cant bend a pole on their own weight (If jumping right). current pole weight rule just put coaches in a bind. As a coach of ...
