Cheshire Athletics Network pole vault sessions

Cheshire Athletics Network pole vault sessions

Seven athletes from across Cheshire attended a Polevault training session held at Sportcity on Saturday 10th March 2012 which was delivered by Wendy Valentine, a coach at Crewe and Nantwich AC (who are a member of the Cheshire Athletics Network). She has recently been working with coaches from across the North West to develop her own coaching skills and throughout the indoor season has had numerous athletes achieving SBs, PBs, and medals.

The session saw the all-girl squad being taken through their paces and practice the basic techniques needed for successful vaulting throughout the summer season. As well as vaulting, the athletes went through some warm-up drills, core work and cool downs.

Cheshire Athletics NetworkFor future sessions, coaches are encouraged to come along with their athletes and work alongside Wendy to support the sessions and to work with other coaches to share good practice. The next pole vault training will be held on Sunday 1st April 2012 at Sportcity. Each session is £3 per athlete and is free for coaches.  Please contact Vicky Huyton (Cheshire Athletics Network Coordinator) on 07738 402931 or email at
