Two-time All American pole vaulter at the College of St. Benedict and University of Minnesota Assistant Coach Caroline White breaks down the event of a successful pole vault into an easy to follow program for the athlete and for novice coaches. She shares her training ideas on how you can develop and teach the critical training phases behind a successful pole vault attempt. Beginning with a series of pool drills to develop effective form, Coach White teaches how to clear the bar and fly-away. You will see essential body positioning in each stage of the take-off and flight with clear, step-by-step instruction. This unique approach to the vault is beneficial because it allows an athlete to experience the vaulting progression safely, with proper technique and form without taxing the body. The water slows the drill down and allows the coach and athlete to evaluate proper mechanics and understand movements while exaggerating mistakes. It also provides an indoor training option when bad weather hampers outdoor vaulting time. In addition to the pool drills, she shares over 20 drills that can be used by the young athlete to build the fundamentals needed for the pole vault. Athletes of all skill sets will benefit from these great drills and reach new heights! 63 minutes. 2013. DVD. This DVD is part of the set: Becoming a Champion: Girls' Track & Field Series.
