This summer we are offering 3 super exciting camps!  We have a truly incredible line-up of coaches coming to the camps. These coaches represent what many would consider to be some of the best coaches the USA has to offer.  The Staff will be slightly different at each camp and may offer something just a little different for the participant.  These outstanding coaches were sought out to coach at VaultWorX because their programs reflect a similar model and encouraging styles that VaultWorX strives for every day.​

Coach Bob Phillips - Pole Vault Coach Virginia Tech

Former Virginia Tech All-American Bob Phillips is in his 31st year as coach of the Hokie pole vaulters. During that time, the vault program at Virginia Tech has risen to national prominence and to the top of the ACC. In the ten years of ACC membership, seventeen different Virginia Tech vaulters have qualified to the NCAA national championships a total of 45 times where they have earned All-America honors 34 times including three silver and two bronze medals. In that same time period, Tech vaulters have claimed 51 ACC conference medals including 26 ACC conference vault titles, more than all other schools in the ACC combined. In all, Phillips has coached 37 vaulters (26 men, 11 women) to conference championships since joining the staff, one junior national champion, seven NCAA medalists (top 3), and one qualifier to the IAAF World Championships.

While competing at Tech, Phillips set the school record in the indoor and outdoor vault. He was a four-time NCAA national qualifier and was named an All-American in 1980. Phillips was also a member of the U.S. National Team that took on Great Britain in 1984 and competed at the U.S. Olympic Trials in July of that year. He was inducted into the Tech Sports Hall of Fame in 1999. Phillips has coached vaulters to 37 conference championship titles and was also a three-time Metro Conference, four-time indoor Virginia collegiate and four-time outdoor Virginia collegiate champion.
