what is flight club?

Indoor, personalized training for high jumpers and pole vaulters. Both developmental and experienced athletes welcome. Full Pole Vault Runway and pit, and Full High Jump Pit at each session. Video analysis is available during each practice session as well.


The Flight Club was started in 2017 based on the need for area pole vaulters and high jumpers to vault/jump during the winter months and indoor track season. Since beginning with a couple of coaches and a handful of athletes the program has expanded to six coaches and approximately 40 vaulters and high jumpers. We also have “alumni” come back to assist periodically. 


The program is open to all athletes regardless of age, gender or ability. We have beginners to seasoned state-qualifying athletes in the same session. Our sessions usually have 3-4 coaches. Athletes are placed into groups based on their ability level and drills are carried out to get the most out of each athlete. A typical session is two hours long.


Sessions typically begin with a dynamic warm-up with all the athletes participating as a group, and then athletes are separated into their desired disciplines (Vault or High Jump).

In the High Jump group, all athletes take part in the designed workout of the day. These workouts incorporate event-specific warm-ups and drills that go along with and progress through the monthly circuit. The circuits include Conditioning, Approach, Take Off, and Flight themes.
