Our club sessions are available to all pole vaulters at all levels and ages. Sessions are available to our club members and to non-members, but our club members get a discount to the session fees. We try to accommodate to the needs of the vaulter, especially if the vaulter is prepping for an upcoming meet or trying to achieve a certain technique or skill. Club members will get first priority on coaching and session slot if club training sessions are full.
The practice sessions are usually two hours and we ask that vaulters come earlier than the practice session time to get warmed up so we can maximize the training session.
Seasonal Training and Schedule
We change up the training days and times based on the season. We divide up the year into four seasons that match the seasonal names of winter, spring, summer, and fall.
(January - February) - Practice two nights a week with an occasional Saturday practice that doesn't conflict with a winter indoor meet.
(March - May) - Usually a majority of our athletes are competiting for high school, so we will only practice two nights a week.
(June - August) - Practice three days a week, usually two week days and either a Saturday or Sunday session. There are also USATF outdoor meets to compete in during this time
(November - December) - Practices with more emphasis on strength and conditioning
Check the Calendar for actual days and times for seasonal training sessions.
