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.

Summers in full swing and the kids are reaching out to jump at their local camps and clubs. Letting their hair down and having some fun is the name of the game and hopefully, you will find the balance between the two. This month we travel across the pond to see what England has to offer for the pole vault world as we cover pole vault clubs around the world.

Pole Vault news, “Oxford's Kendricks defends U.S. pole vault title” DES MOINES, Iowa – The reigning king of American pole vault wasn’t about to let anyone grab his crown.(2018). (

“Greenville's Sandi Morris repeats as U.S. outdoor pole vault champion” (Greenville's Sandi Morris won her second consecutive title at the USATF Outdoor Championships, but inclement weather cut short her opportunity to reach the top of the world's pole vault rankings. (2018). Retrieved from (

On the cover, West London Track & Field. We talk with Ellie Spain about her knowledge of the sport and what they do to achieve their jumping goals as a team. "Over the years, Ellie has coached athletes from five countries, some reaching the national and even international levels." It's a fresh breath of air to read about another country and what they do to inspire, motivate and propel their athletes to the next level. Samantha writes one heck of an article about this team and we're sure you will like what you read.

Kreager Taber writes about Ramping up Summer Training. "While summer breaks from school present a perfect time for vaulters to chase higher personal records, get faster, or work on their strength, it also provides an ideal time for athletes to take a step back from full vaults and focus on correcting problems in their technique." Rest is the name of the game and fixing those problem spots that you may have in your form. Taking the time to add to your pole vault bank account of knowledge is always a must. Good job Kreager and keep up the good work.

Check us out next month when we talk to Utah Pole Vault Academy about their new street vault and club out of Utah. We will get to know this team and see what they have going on within their state.Stay safe and jump high!
