Coaching in pole vault technique, strength and conditioning at the track and the gym. In return the coach requires your commitment to train 3 days a week, minimum.
Use of all the correct poles for your ability, fitness level and weight.
Training plans for when the coach is not present, like gym strength and conditioning plans.
Poles for competition at the home track or away. Coaching during competitions.
Coaching and transport of poles to competitions outside of Sydney are the responsibility of each athlete. This will include transport, fuel, accommodation and food costs for the duration. If more than one athlete competing, then costs should be shared equally.
Poles and coaching during competition are available ONLY:
If you trained prior to the competition for a minimum 6 consecutive sessions.
If your fees are up to date.
No training means no poles and no coaching at competitions.
Sorry to insist on this. To expect poles and training for free only leads to injury for the athlete and insolvency for the coach, it's a proven historical fact. So, plan your career well, this applies to all age groups regardless of proficiency and experience.
