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.

Street Vaults, USATF Junior Olympics, Beach Vaults, Summer Meets and more are starting to wind down and the rest period before fall training is starting to begin. Soon you will get back to school and start your next year of high school, middle school, and college. Rest is the name of the game during this period and getting yourself mentally prepared for the fall workouts is a must. Healing and recovery may be needed for both your mental and physical body aspects of the vault. Take the time and do it right!

On the cover, Utah Pole Vault Academy. We talk with Kody Pierce about his club, starting it up after seeing his mentor Dean Starkey run his club and his love for the sport. Building his facility in Riverton, Utah, Kody has caught the eye of many around the area and has coached some of the best. "Motivated by what he had seen at Dean Starkey’s club, Kody decided the best thing to do for his vaulters would be to establish a club, and in 2015 he built a facility to train his athletes in year round." Check it out and see what it takes to get your club off the ground and ready to go in your hometown, just like Kody. Samantha knocks it out of the park and gives the ready and interesting perspective into this club.

Kreager Taber kettlebell training and the help that it provides when transitioning from bells over to weights. "Instead of gradually increasing weight and easing themselves back into the weight room after a relaxing summer, many athletes strive to lift the same weights that they hit at the end of the spring season." We love using kettlebells to train and use them as often as we can with our pole vaulters. Kreager has an eye for writing articles about the sport we love and what it takes to get stronger, faster, and mentally strong.

Check us out next month when we look into the world of the USATF Junior Olympics and what it takes to get involved and if you even should. Stay tuned, this will get interesting.
