Mark your calendars! June 20th-21st Long Beach State will be holding a ID/ Prospect Camp!! This camp is open to all that are interested in college athletics! This is great way to interact with coaching staff, expand and refine skills in your event areas. Event areas include: #Sprints #Hurdles #Throws #Jumps #PoleVault #Distance #CrossCountry Hope to see you there! 🌊
No word can describe the joy I felt today. Witnessed this group put everything on the line and show the rest of the conference what it means to be a teammate and sacrifice. All I have is gratitude and thankfulness for the opportunity to work with these amazing athletes. #multis #decathlon #heptathlon
Huge shout out to the multi’s crew, great job getting out there and representing. Lots and lots of positive results and PR’s. Special shoutout to @bigherm14 , tallying up 7410 points and putting together his first multi in 2 years. The mark moves him to #3 in school history and should put him in good contention to qualify for the national championship. More highlights to come. #decathlon #heptathlon #gobeach #purpose #patience #persistence #progress
Headwind and Hard Bar Challenge! (Height in meters x headwind m/s ) Had some headwinds come through on Friday, so I thought it would be a good day to bring out the wind gage to see who could get the highest HW score, trying to put a positive spin on some adversity. Best wind of the day 3 m/s, unfortunate very few bars were made. Luckily we should have some more opportunities this season to put up some big scores! #LongBeachHWChallenge #PoleVault #vaultermagazine #jumpersworld
Developing Individual Strengths The focus will be making sure each athlete understands the strengths that they bring to the event while also helping them understand their weaknesses. This will provide each athlete refined areas for individual growth. (Open to all levels ) November 17th – 18th $140 each, $120 with groups of 4+ Recent Reviews 1 )Great job teaching me new things, I learned drills I’ve never done before, and I learned some stuff I need to improve on to get better. I had a great time, it was very fun. 2 )She liked learning the new drills Coach Brandon taught her, as well as his style of coaching. She liked that you all rolled out muscles in the morning and did different warm up activities. We appreciate that you had a trainer on site since she required tape and ice daily. 3 )The interactions by the coaches made our daughter feel very encouraged throughout her time there. She definitely feels like she would want to continue because of that. Thank you coaches and staff! 4 )I thought the coach(es ) did well with showing us examples of all the drills and the workouts that we can do to improve. Additionally, I thought the coach did a great job of helping us improve every day so that we could have the strength and confidence to pole vault.😀👍 #polevault #longbeachstate #vaultermagazine
Might as well make the most out of both pit! Alternating jumps between platform and ramp today. Key Concept, as a group, was on maintaining the pole energy throughout the vault. Watch how the pole reacts differently to each vaulter. Some are in full control and maintain pole energy efficiently, while others let the pole control them. #polevault #longbeachstate #beachisbetter #vaultermagazine #patience #persistence #progress

Shoutout to @johnbroads He had a total of 7 PR’s this past weekend and placed 3rd at the MPSF conference meet with 5145. 3 of those PR’s came in the vault 4.30,4.40, and 4.50. This is his jump at 4.50. Time to head outdoors and keep the ball rolling!
Just working the little things. I’d say it was a successful day on the ramp for the group. Focus: full extension of trail leg off the ground and “Acture” (active posture ) control during hang. This will be crucial to moving some big stick late in the season. #slappy #firstpost #dontletthisgotoyourhead #polevault
The importance of self evaluation. Not only is this of huge importance for the athletes but also for myself to help solve the puzzle that is each and everyone of these athletes. It is truly a blessing for me to get the chance to do this day in and day out. Hopefully my actions have spoken much loader then my words because I know I am not always the most vocal leader. But each and everyday I hold myself to the same expectations I hold for my own athletes. My goal is to make a huge impact in each and everyone of my athletes lives, not only at practice or on the track, but throughout everyday life. I want to be someone they can rely on, someone they can always come to, I want to be a mentor, the one that helps them navigate this transitional period to adulthood. This is My Goal and each day I strive to get better at it.
@haileebrigman put together some great jumps yesterday at the Steve Scott Invite. Everything is finally starting to connect, just need to connect into that turn now and she'll have another big PR. This is her PR jump of (3.51 ) 11' 6. Great job yesterday, lots more PRs to come. #benditlikebrigman #polevault #progress
Long Beach State Men Pole Vault had a great day yesterday 1-4 at the Big West Challenge. Every once in a while these guys make me look like I know what I'm doing! @burntrice15 @xander_pv over 5.10, @bo_tox 4.95 PR, @dew_10 4.80, @whitemexican719 4.65, @ydris4 4.50 #PoleVault #LongBeachState #BeachIsBest
Coach got a little trigger happy on the first video... sorry @kennedykrugs Awesome job yesterday! PR of 12' 6 (3.81 ) moving her to 5th in outdoor history and the best technical jump I have ever seen you put together at 13' "it looked pretty". #conferencequalifier #5alltime #prettyjump #patience #finallyonthe13 '6 #nextstop13 #polevault #LongBeachState #vaultermagazine
@kennedykrugs great day other than one little mishap. First jump up over 12 6 with height to spare. Second same pole unfortunately it explodes, luckily no one was injured. Last is 3 jumps later going up to the 13' 6 series and still moving through the pole nicely. #biffoftheday #polevault #LongBeachState #vaultermagazine #backflip #KrankandKrackKrueger
Great training day for the group yesterday! @burntrice15 jumping again, @dew_10 getting back over 16', @laurenbartsch getting on her 9L, @xander_pv consistent 9L, @bo_tox getting onto the 15'6 series, @haileebrigman moving up poles, and @whitemexican719 finally getting those last few steps down. Here's @kennedykrugs making a new 6L PR at 12'. I guess you can say its a good day when you get on your full approach poles from a short step #PoleVault #LongBeachState #progress #vaultermagazine
Things are starting to come together. Progress might be slow, but the little things matter. We definitely can always do more, but im really liking the difference in the pole control and how much closer he is to staying behind the pole through the turn. The cues are working. 11/7 to 3/6, @xander_pv (1 pole up + better timing = 1ft higher hip height ). #PoleVault #LongBeachState #vaultermagazine
