Coaches Blog: How do Improve my vault?

We all know the basics of a good Vault: heel drive, tight body, run fast, etc. But have you have ever taken a good look at the length of the hurdle to the board?

But if you watch some other gymnasts, you'll see that most of them run right up to the edge of the board and hurdle maybe 1 or 2 feet away from it, which effectively sucks all the power out of their Vault. OK, so they're not elite gymnasts and there's no way they're going to hurdle from 12 feet away and make it to the board, BUT if they've got a reasonable run and a solid handspring, they should be hurdling from at least 4 feet away. And the faster the run, the longer the hurdle should be. Do you have that one athlete who has a good run and plenty of strength and skill but a mysteriously slow handspring?

Try lengthening the hurdle, I bet it'll make a difference.
