Need some ideas for the vaulter you know? Want to give a gift to yourself? Here are a few fun ideas—and most of them won't break the bank! If you click on the links included, you'll be taken to a page where you can make your purchase.
1. An Awesome Jump Rope.
A few minutes a day will give you the bounce you need for the mount. This one feels great.
Maybe order up a new pair from the nice folks at Pegasus Vaulting Supply?
3. Ipod Speakers for Vaulting Music
It's easier, greener, and in the long run CHEAPER to use portable speakers than it is to burn CDs. This one also charges iPods and is compatible with current Nano and Touch models (even though the maker says it isn't.) And for the price, the sound quality is spectacular! Pretty cool.
4. An Understated Yet Fashionable Vaulting Ninja T-shirt!
Comes in all kinds of sizes, adults, women's and kids, as well as a selection of colors. And a portion of your purchase helps support NEV team expenses. About $22 from Printfection. And while you are there, we have other designs to choose from.5. A fantastically easy-to-use Camcorder.
Check out the Flip camcorder—easy to use, practically indestructible, and great in the low light of indoor arenas. These makes adding a video to YouTube super easy and helps vaulters get a really good sense of what they are actually doing. It's useful for instruction and feedback, but also lots of fun. Maybe a nice Santa will give one to your club...
6. An iMix of new Vaulting Music
You could create your own. Start with ours for ideas and then explore.
Okay, so maybe not the world's best leggings but these are inexpensive, comfortable and come in lots of colors.
Last year, there was a nice article in Vaulting World about the use of stability balls for building core strength. Perhaps there are even more creative uses of these in practice. Be sure to select the right size for your vaulter.
9. A Freestyle "Kit" from the AVA. $40.
Helps vaulters plan strong freestyles! See for yourself.
And last but not least....
