CHS PV Coach Dick Walters 

Has consistently developed 13’+  boys and 9’+  girls, including three 14’+  boys and five 10’+ girls, of which two were 11’+.  In the last 10 years, coached 3 different boys and 3 different girls to State Meet Podium. Enthusiastically coaches beginning vaulters.

            LOGAN ELM PV Coach Katy Blubaugh

In 9 years of coaching, Katy has coached multiple Regional Qualifiers, and two state qualifiers, including two girls who were District Champion and District Runner-up in back to back seasons (who also placed 1st and 2nd in their league), one of whom has gone on to clear   over 12’ so far this season and was the Ohio Indoor State Champion.

What you need:  Mailed (see registration page) in parent signed registration form with check, 

shoes (spikes optional), Water bottle (optional), T-shirt, shorts, towel, rain gear. I have many, but not all poles. Feel free to bring your own, or not.

What to expect: My vaulters rarely do full approach vaulting more than once a week. Expect LOTS of short approach vaulting and drills with emphasis on what you have to do to approach your potential. Full approach vaults toward the end of each daily session. Video analysis is planned.
