Need to Know
Information When Learning or Coaching the Pole Vault.
and coaches should know and be able to explain these.
How do you prove all pole vaulting positions to show
how one technique is correct and another is less efficient? This
means that you have scientific data or the â€œProofsâ€ of correct pole
vaulting and you can show how one technique is better than all
others scientifically. Letâ€™s remove the thought that it has always
been done like this so it must be right. Know the scientific proven
facts verses just thinking its right.
What are the angles of power in pole vaulting that
determine correct vaulting?
What is the correct pole vault model that should be
followed? Jeff Hartwig, Tim Mack, Brad Walker, Sergey Bubka, Yelena
Isinbayeva or some other?
What is a Free Take-off and how do you teach it?
What is blocking out? When does it start and when
does it end? Can you jump without blocking out?
What are the correct gymnastic and exercise drills
to teach the positions and phases in the model?
What are the correct positions a vaulter should try
to get to as they jump the model? Pole Carry, Run, Take-off, Swing,
Rotation, Extension and Release
What are the correct warm up drills to teach each
position and phase in the model which emphasizes the correct bending
and loading of the pole, swing, and rotation, extension up the pole
and off the top without losing energy from the previous positions?
How should coaches find the stride length for a
vaulter so they can determine if the approach run and take-off is
correct and on?
How does a coach find the correct grip width for
each individual vaulter?
What factors determine what pole a vaulter should be
on and which poles they will need to go to next?
