Event Description

Grand Valley State Track & Field Camps

GVSU Pole Vaulting

LOU USES A SIMPLE A,B,C, APPROACH TO COACHING.  WITH A BACKGROUND IN EDUCATION, HE TEACHES HIS VAULTERS THE ALL IMPORTANT ANSWER TO “WHY” THINGS EITHER WORK OR DO NOT WORK  IN THE VAULT. AFTER UNDERSTANDING WHAT AND WHY TO DO THINGS, IT JUST TAKES REPETITION TO ABLE TO MASTER A TECHNIQUE.

DUING A ONE DAY CAMP, VAULTERS MOST LIKELY WILL NOT VAULT A FOOT HIGHER.  THE GOAL IS TO LEARN THE THINGS THAT ARE NEEDED TO MAKE THAT JUMP POSSIBLE IN THE FUTURE.

COME LEARN THE LAKER WAY OF POLE VAULTING!

July 30th
Grades: 7th - 12th
Time: 12:00PM - 4:00PM
Price per camp$50
Location: GVSU Track and Field Complex
Each camp will be focused on drills, gymnastics, and short approach vaulting.  We will not jump from full approach.  The main push will be to get lots of repetitions from short approach which is easier to do when it is in the heat of the summer.

It is not necessary to come to all camps. Each day we will start at the beginning and add to what we worked on the week before for returners.  Hopefully four days of learning new drills will better reinforce everyone’s technique.
