of pole vaulters, and pole vault coaches, with special emphasis upon the
teaching of the basic skills, progressions, and risk reduction in pole
vaulting. In addition, it is the secondary goal of the Pole Vault Certification

Why get certified? Pole vaulting is not a dangerous sport when done with
the proper coaching and safety techniques. We feel that giving coaches and
athletes the right information and testing them on that information that we
have taken the biggest safety hazard out of the equation- lack of knowledge.
