Our focus is on proper mechanics – teaching you the basics of how to perform a flawless vault. We include: 1) Film study and lecture – teaching and showing the essentials every great vaulter must know, 2) Developing a great approach – pole carry, tip drop, rhythm and stride pattern – we’ll show you the best way to maximize your runway time, 3) Plant and takeoff – we spend a lot of time with training poles perfecting this critical part of the vault – repetition is the key! 4) Rockback and flyaway – gymnastics and underwater vaulting are used to teach awareness and strengthen the body for this phase of the vault.

In an effort to honor two lives lost too soon, the Texas Track & Field Coaches Association has established two scholarships, one in the name of SMU athlete Hannah Moss and the other in the name of Kierstin Eaddy of The Shelton School. We keep their memories alive via two non-performance-based scholarships.
Jordan Barnes and Treet Allison, both in their essays and short videos, stood out from the many outstanding entries. Both excel in the classroom and in their respective communities.
