2019 Drift Motion Pole Vault Camp

We are offering a summer pole vault day camp August 3th & 4th at Castle View High School in Castle Rock, Colorado.

The pole vault camp is a day camp for two days. We don't offer overnight accommodations, but those from out of town can find accommodations in the south Denver metro area.

Guest Coaches

Derick is an assistant coach at Western Colorado University, responsible for coaching the jumps and multi-event groups while coordinating facilities scheduling for Mountaineer Athletics. He began his vaulting career at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, California where he was the California State Junior College Champion in 2011. After Cuesta, Hinch transferred to Arizona State University. At the 2012 NCAA DI Outdoor Championships, Hinch finished third with a personal best mark of 5.50m (18'0.5").
