2017 G-Force Pole Vault Club Program

Pursuing Excellence in the Pole Vault

Come experience pole vaulting for the first time, or hone your existing skills. The emphasis of the program is to work with each vaulter, from beginner to advanced, to reach their maximum potential while having lots of fun. Poles are provided, or you're welcome to bring your own. All ages 10 and up (including adults) are welcome.

We had a great 2016 and will repeat the format for summer and fall 2017. We'll run four separate sessions, each limited to a maximum of 10 vaulters. Each practice will last 2½ hours with a minimum 1:5 coach to vaulters ratio.

Additionally, this spring we’re trying something new: a 3-Sunday all-ages Introduction to Pole Vault camp for beginners.
