Opinions on first meet height and end of high school PR

Unread postby J_polevault15 » Wed Feb 25, 2015 4:25 pm

I've been vaulting for about 4-5 months now and was injured during indoor so never got a chance to compete. I was wondering what starting height you guys think ill be at, my coach thinks around 10 for my first meet and other one of my teammates thinks i could get 15 by my senior year of high school.



I am:
16 years old (Sophomore in High School - Vaulting for 4 months)
6'2"
155 lbs
Have done a bungee around 8 feet i think and that was a breeze, but I don't get much vaulting time because my coach has others who are in a meet vault first

Just want some opinions on where you guys think ill start off and are there any drills I can do at home for each part of the Vault

What pole are you on and what grip are you at? Also, do you have any video of your jumps?
