Train Pole Vaulters to Swing Correctly!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Saturday, August 1, 2015

Indiana State University assistant coach, Jeff Martin, discusses what it takes to execute a perfect swing and presents a couple useful training drills for this crucial step of pole vaulting. Achieving a fast and smooth swing will help pole vaulters generate more upward momentum in each rep.

The Swing

Drill Summary: To practice the swing, athletes will complete both a one arm swing and a two arm swing. For both swings, the athlete runs down the runway, plants the pole and performs a long, sweeping motion with their trail leg. As they raise off the ground, the athlete focuses on getting their hips above their shoulders as they come down and land on their backside.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Long, sweeping motion.
2) Hips above shoulders.
3) Imagine there’s a ball on the pit and kick it off.
4) Never throw your head back – keep it in a neutral position.
