All of these practices are “open pit” – vaulters come when they can and leave when they are tired J. Practice focus depends on the individual vaulter, the time of year and their goals.

All practices are weather & meet dependent. In case of high heat (90° and above) may be delayed until at least 5pm. All postponements and cancellations will be posted to our Facebook page, our Twitter feed and the calendar on our website
