|I started my coaching in
1983 as a hurdle and sprint coach at Pearl City High School. I also
coached at Baldwin High School in Maui for 2 years. In 1995 I began to
coach the pole vault event at Moanalua High school. In 1999 I joined the
Iolani track team as a Pole Vault coach. I am currently the Hawaii
Chairman of USATF Pole Vault Development. I'm also a speed training
consultant for Vitesse Sport Technologie which is the "chain
training" that the team uses. I am currently assisting the
sprinters and helping the team with the VST training. When time permits
I help out the pole vaulters as well.
My philosophy has always been to help athletes to reach their full potential and have a positive experience with the sport.
