Wherever NWPV athletes have traveled over the past few years, folks keep asking, “What the heck is going on at your club that produces so many All-American athletes?   For distant athletes especially, a 3-day camp is the perfect chance to find out.  Though our teaching system has always evolved and improved, what has never changed in over three decades is that there is no better place for young pole vaulters to develop. 


We’ve trained thousands for the first time, and accomplished veterans come year after year for their annual tune-ups with the best coaching, drills, curriculum and take-home practice plans to build upon.


This summer our featured assistant coach will be 2008 US Olympian and Washington State University coach Erica Bartolina Fraley.  


   NWPV Campers can expect comprehensive education about:

  • pole vault physics,

  • learning sequences

  • drill interventions to correct technique

  • introductions to vault-specific weight training and gymnastic drills. 


In addition to her coaching, Coach Fraley will be an awesome resource for competitive wisdom at the elite level.  


Whether you have just tried vaulting this spring and have been infected with a new passion, or you are a seasoned high school or collegiate athlete with potential you know is untapped, you could not be in better hands than you will be with us.  


Numbers will be limited to 20 per camp, two groups of 10, which will rotate in and out of high energy activity and more restful classroom and kinesthetic learning modes. 


Though our training center is equipped with full-time video analysis, parents are welcome to video anything we do, and coaches are encouraged to shadow us all day long to maximize takeaways for their programs at home.  

We’re excited to having you join the NWPV community for this camp and beyond.  Until then, Don’t stop believing.

The daily schedule will look like this:

9:00am -12:00pm

2:00pm – 5:00pm
