Pole Vault: 12 Step Full Approach Off Runway

This is a 12 step full approach run off of the pole vault runway. The athlete has a towel laid down as the pole vault box so they can feel what the timing will be like when they go to the actual pole vault runway. Notice here that there are two cones in the midpoint of the athletes run. This is to help the coach determine what a good 4 step coaches checkpoint will be. In the 12-step approach the coach is simply looking for the athletes eighth step, marking that point, and then measuring over to the tape measure, so they can see the distance of their four-point coaches checkpoint. This is a safe way to determine what the appropriate 4 step check mark should be before you take your approach over to the pole vault runway.
