It’s December and wow, it came extremely quickly once again. It seems that I’m saying this a little too often. It’s the best time of the year if you ask us, we love the holiday season for all the Christmas Cheer. Every year it seems that Christmas and our Candy Cane meet is the staple of our club and magazine. Such a fun event with friends and family around sharing Christmas joy. You can’t ask for more as we add the wonderful sport of pole vault right in the middle of it all. If you get a chance to come and join us, I would do just that. We will see you all at the 2022 EXPO Explosion meet in Texas. Come and join us for the fun.


What a cool cover by the United States Naval Academy with all the Christmas spirit around this amazing team. Once again, they make the whole process so flawless with their enthusiasm and professionalism. But there’s more to this amazing team then what meets the eye. “Rory Quiller spearheads the pole vault squad at the Naval Academy, located in Annapolis, Maryland. The U.S Naval Academy is a federal service academy, and the athletes on the Navy track and field squad are held to high standards of achievement that look a little different than the usual college athletic experience.” What else can you say, this is a top-notch institution for military pole vaulting. Thank you for taking the time to bless us with your knowledge and insight. Sara knocked it out of the park with this article, thank you!


When I read the article from Daniel Bush each month, I get quite the chuckle with what he provides. Not only very well written and professionally done, but it’s also fun to follow along one month after another. ““He’s a stickler, dat Steve Stickler, ya?” I said.  “Lucky, he gave grace.” Arriving at the source of a traffic jam, a car had its hazard lights on as two men pushed it from behind.  “Hey, isn’t that Stickler?” Chuck asked, placing his gold medal on the dash.  “And he’s got Barlove with him.” Always wrapped in family values, hard work and discipline and we love that about his stories. “


Goals are a very efficient way to get through most aspects of life to include pole vault. If it’s New Years’, state championships, or league finals, it is good to set some short- and long-term goals that will help you navigate through the process of pole vault. Abbey sends in a sweet article how she sets her goals and the importance of doing so. Great read! “So, in short, my goal was to work so hard that I would accomplish my dreams.”


January 1, 2023 is right upon us and we will have the coast guard on the cover for the new year. Stay tuned for that edition, it will be a good one.

April is here and the sun is starting to come out all around the nation and especially Southern California. Vaulter Magazine, our training facility, magazine, and more are all running as to be expected. Meets are all running smoothly at a pace of two per month, articles are coming in, our facility just installed a new Richey pole vault pit, so we would like to think that things are looking up. At Vaulter Magazine training facility, it’s that time of the year when all kinds of athletes from around the United States come and join our club to vault. We love it and look forward to having athletes join us at a destination hot spot for pole vault.

Alysha Newman is on the cover of the magazine this month. This is her second time on the cover and the first time was a few years back when she just finished up at the Gators in Florida. Seems like yesterday and the time is flying. Sara Wagenveld brings this article to fruition with her insight on the high-ranking professional athlete. “I like to remind myself everywhere I go what my goals are. And to keep in mind what I'm really focusing on and what I want to accomplish and not get distracted. So I am very goal-oriented and I try to do everything I possibly can to put myself in the best possible situation to accomplish those goals.”

Bubba Sparks brings the MAC Vault Academy to our pages for the club spotlight. “The new gym in Navasota, TX consists of three pole vault pits with runways over 140 feet, a 60-meter speed track, a high jump pit, a long jump pit, a rope, rings, a high bar, a second-story viewing room, a media room, and a state-of-the-art weight room complete with hydraulic weight technology. The gym consists of everything an athlete needs to progress in their vault career.” A short article that is to the point. Thank you, Bubba, job well done.

The Olympic committee and WADA have a whole lot of action on their plate with Russia and the doping ban. Not to mention the lifting up of the Olympics during a worldwide pandemic. An amazing read by Taber Kreager, one that will enlighten us all on what to do and not do with the vaccine. “The IOC’s anti-doping regulations for the Games, released on 11 March 2021, are set to be the “most extensive” ever established. The program was developed in partnership with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and International Testing Agency (ITA) and has been designed to be remarkably thorough to ensure that athletes are competing fairly.”

May is right around the corner and this will be our 9th year publishing a magazine each month about the pole vault community. As we look back at this venture, we tend to think about how far we have come. The lookback is very quick as we plan for the future of the sport. Next issue we have Kent State, stay tuned.
