To my knowledge Grant is the first high school boy to jump 16+ in Minnesota.  He jumped 4.91m or 16-01.25 at the New Balance Indoor Games over the weekend. Grant has attended many of Flight Deck's camps over the past several years.  It is nice to see his hard work pay off.

It's snowing!  A sure sign that track season is here, if ever there was one.

We have completed our first indoor season at the University of Minnesota.  It was a good first draft and we're excited to improve upon the original next year.  

BUT, we're always looking for ways to keep vaulters vaulting high, and the weather looks rough, so Flight Deck is going to offer 2 additional Sunday opportunities to vault indoors at UMN.  Open pit. Come one, come all.

The details:
1. Sunday March 17th and 24th, 1-3pm
2. Bring your OWN poles (ours are being rented out for the season)
3. Bring your coach if you can
4. Bring your USATF membership card
5  $40 cash or check (each practice)
6. We will provide one Flight Deck coach to oversee the practices (Michelle Legatt), but it won't be as formal as camp instruction depending on the number of athletes attending


Hopefully this will help bridge the gap to more pole vault friendly weather.
