2019 G-Force Pole Vault Club Program

Pursuing Excellence in the Pole Vault

Come experience pole vaulting for the first time, or hone your existing skills. The emphasis of the program is to work with each vaulter, from beginner to advanced, to reach their maximum potential while having lots of fun. Poles are provided, or you're welcome to bring your own. All ages 9 and up (including adults) are welcome.

Spring:

Our 3-session Introduction to Pole Vault camp for boys and girls in grades 4-8 will be held on Sunday April 28, Saturday May 11 and Saturday May 18 from 11:00 - 1:00. This is a fun clinic that will introduce young athletes to pole vault. Topics covered include: equipment, safety, pole carry, run/approach, plant and swing up. Sessions will be held indoors at Forest Lake Area High School (weather permitting, some sessions may be moved outdoors). Registration closed April 14.

Summer:

We'll have 4 options for summer camps, each limited to a maximum of 10 vaulters so we can maintain a 1 to 5 coach to vaulter ratio. First time or experienced athletes, ages 9 to adult, are welcome.
