How to Pole Vault: 4 Step Swing and Turn Drill
This is a 4 step swing and turn drill for the pole vault. This is teaching an athlete the beginning level of starting to cover the pole at the top of the vault. Here the athlete is focusing on the swing, as the athlete starts to connect with the pole, they want to keep pressure on the top hand while turning their body around the pole at that point. The athlete needs to be certain to keep their right hand close to their body connecting with the left hip, then pulling up through their chin pushing back down the full landing on their stomach in the pit.
