Coach Education & Mentoring

Part of GVPV's mission is to make pole vaulting better and safer for everyone.  To support this we invite other coaches to join us to learn firsthand how we teach the event and to share our knowledge.

Costs for coach mentoring vary based on existing knowledge and the number of sessions.  Please contact us directly to express your interest and when you are ready register here.  Prior to participating coaches are required to become USATF members, complete a background check, and complete SafeSport training.
