Olympic Quest / Lone Star Pole Vaulting


Effective Cues for Coaches
Peter Kostis has 3 rules for teaching:
  1. It's about the student, not the teacher
  2. "Teachers should know the swing in its utter complexity to teach you with utter simplicity." From Golf Magazine. Same is true in pole vault!
  3. Teachers must never stop learning.
"Seeing a swing flaw is easy. Seeing what's causing that flaw is hard. Anyone can tell you what you're doing wrong. Fewer can tell you what to do right and HOW to do it right. Getting to the root cause often fixes multiple problems."
"Improvement is all about making the uncomfortable comfortable, and then finding the next uncomfortable obstacle." - Bubba Sparks
