Pole Vault Clinics!!


Russ VerSteeg is offering two pole vault clinics at ABC’s Gymnastics, 40 Industrial Park Road, Niantic, CT. One on February 18 (Presidents’ Day) from 3:00 – 4:30 pm, and another on March 3 from 7:30-9:00 pm.

These clinics are intended for coaches who want to learn more about how to coach the pole vault and also for novice pole vaulters (especially vaulters who have not previously worked with Russ).

The primary goals of the clinics are:

  • Introduce coaches and novice vaulters to the basic principals, mechanics, and techniques of the pole vault;

  • Introduce coaches and novice vaulters to the safety considerations essential for teaching and learning the pole vault; and

  • Provide coaches and novice vaulters with information and demonstrations to build a positive and successful pole vault program.

Each clinic will cover the same material. The two dates are intended make the clinics more convenient for everyone. These clinics will be a great way for beginners to learn the basics and for coaches to learn teaching fundamentals that will help get your athletes off to a good start in a difficult sport.
