In February 2017 we will be running our next Pole Vault Training Camp at Gateshead College Academy for Sport. This is a perfect opportunity for you to learn everything you need to know about pole vaulting. You will get the chance to train alongside athletes who are of a similar ability to yourself and work with our experienced athletes and coaches. Our Training Camp is open to all club members and non-club members. You can be a complete beginner or an experienced vaulter, either way we can help.

For ages 8 years and over

So far from our previous camps with have managed to train over 40 new vaulters with some of them having instant success. Claudia Barkes of Barnard Castle School is a perfect example of this. She had previously had a very successful career as a GB gymnast, but unfortunately due to injury she could no longer continue. Claudia attended our training camp in February 2016 and has never looked back since. She has already jumped 3.40m and has represented the North East at the UK School Games coming a very respectful 4th place, competed at English Schools Nationals and many more. Claudia is naturally talented and now loves the sport, she says making that first step and attending the training camp was a perfect introduction to the sport for her. “You never know until you give it a try”

Things we will cover:-
  • The basics, what you need to know about the sport and the basic techniques to get you started.
  • Gymnastics, perfect for pole vaulting.
  • Pole Vault specific exercises.
  • Speed Training, how to run while carrying the pole.
  • All these elements will help you to learn what you need to know about pole vaulting.

    Cost is £60 for the 3 days

    Each day will run from 10am till 3pm and everyone that attends will receive a North East Pole Vault Academy t-shirt.
