Texas A&M Assistant Coach Jim Vanhootegem explains the teaching progression of skills and drills for one of the most exciting events in track & field--the pole vault. Assistant Jumps Coach and former DIII All-American vaulter Mike Bina provides demonstrations of each technique and drill.

You will be introduced to basic Multi-Jump Activities using a short pole to train the proper use of the legs and hips. Coach Vanhootegem shows sprint mechanics with the pole carry followed by drill progressions which include: Single Leg Baby Bounds, Sprint Mechanics, and Jogging down the runway. These seven drills are crucial for getting comfortable with the basics of pole vaulting.

Next is a series of drills that teach the Grip & Pole Carry, Pole Plant, Walking Plant Drills, Jogging Plant Drills, a progression of Wall Plant Drills, and a session on Bending the Pole and Takeoff Drills. All in all, Coach Bina demonstrates over 25 useful and easy to follow drills.

The video also includes demonstrations of several different pole vault specific strength training exercises.

This DVD simplifies one of the most technically demanding events breaking it down into an easy to follow set of progressive teaching steps. Each coach delivers numerous coaching points (in graphic format) that help clarify and teach what is happening in the demonstrations.

If you are new to pole vaulting, need to brush up on a few things, or want to learn one of the most exciting and high flying events track and field has to offer, this video will send you and your vaulters to new heights!
