The Flight Deck Difference
  • Eight athletes max per session
  • 4:1 athlete to coach ratio ensures each vaulter's individual needs are met
  • We actually do provide ALL the poles--we have the largest and most comprehensive pole inventory in the state available for you
  • We do not do one-size-fits-all instruction on drills or on vault
  • We provide one-on-one instruction on drills as each individual needs
  • Athletes do not have to set up or take down the landing pits each day--that's a big deal.
