Stacy is offering a combination Commuter and In-House Camp this summer. The In-House Camp is a unique camp experience for all athletes who have trained with her or attended camp in previous years. Not only will you stay with Stacy in her home, you’ll also be sharing training sessions with three post-collegiate athletes training for the Olympics! Everyone will share meals together and hang out in the evenings, which is a great opportunity to get comfortable and truly ask any questions you might have about pole vaulting, training, other athletes’ experiences, you name it! This special opportunity allows athletes to get more one-on-one time for a truly personalized camp experience.
A great pole vaulter comes from being a well-rounded athlete. It requires speed, strength, body awareness, and mental toughness. All of these items will be a focus of camp.
Stacy believes that the perfect vault starts with a solid run. The coaches will break down the run using sprint mechanics to correct form and maximize power and speed down the runway.
A proper balanced pole carry with a timely plant ensures athletes maintain energy through the take-off. The athletes will learn several different pole carry and plant drills which will enable them to perfect and execute an efficient jump.
The inversion to bar clearance is the final piece of the puzzle. Once the vaulter leaves the ground, the vault becomes a gymnastics maneuver. Therefore, the campers will spend time doing specific gymnastics drills that directly correlate to the inversion and extension phases of the vault.
Stacy strongly believes that it is important to watch elite vaulters, but it is equally important to watch yourself doing drills and jumps. Campers will be filmed and sent home with their own collections of videos so that they can remember what they worked on at camp and continue to perfect their skills.
Attending camp is the first step to mastering the pole vault. By the end of camp, the athletes will be equipped with the knowledge to further their pole vault journey. They will be provided with videos, packets containing drills, strength training exercises, and workouts that can be incorporated into their daily training. Stacy and her team will always be available for support or questions, and look forward to seeing their athletes succeed!
