Pole Vault Development Session – DEESIDE

December 14, 2019

A pole vault development session will be held at the North Wales Indoor Athletics Centre on Saturday December 14th for both experienced vaulters and any young athletes who want to try this exciting event. It is also an opportunity for coaches to observe how pole vault is introduced to youngsters (we start in the long jump pit) and how it progresses to national standard (Welsh Champion Tom Walley will be vaulting).

Young athletes who may be interested and want to come & try pole vaulting are welcome, along with experienced vaulters. Places are limited.

The session will be led by myself but we will also be joined by former Commonwealth Games pole vaulter and gymnast Zoe Brown. Some of you may know that Zoe works for Welsh Athletics and in her official capacity you will have the opportunity to discuss your individual coaching and offer feedback on future regional coach/athlete activities.
