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.

Thank you to our Advertisers. The partners that help our cause, the companies that bring this magazine to you every month! Thank you!

July is here and the summer camp, street vaults, river vaults, and track meets are well underway. Time to refresh and get ready for the upcoming year and wind down from the season prior. A way to re-charge your batteries and reflect on the changes that you need to make or the enhancements that to an already well-oiled machine. Now is the time, don’t take our word for it, go out and see for yourself what the difference will make. Head over to our website and check out some of the camps listed on our, “Camp Directory”.

Vaulter Magazine will take the next 12 months and highlight the Olympic Journey of the past and present for many of the athletes that will attempt to make it into the 2020 Olympics. Only three will compete for each gender and attempt to earn that sacred medal. Kreager Taber writes about the alterations to the IAAF Olympic Qualifying Standards and oh what a read it is. See for yourself and get the information that you don’t get anywhere else.

On the cover, we have KMR Athletics coach Brian Riggs talking to Samantha about how he started a pole vaulting club, his family and the reasons for coaching the way that he does. “Coach Bob Jenkins and Coach Calvin Hudgins provided the motivation and recourses for us to get KMR Athletics off the ground,” says Brian. A fun read and when you take a moment to do so, you will learn a few things that even we didn’t know.

National Senior Games in Albuquerque will bring our, “Masters Vaulter of the Year”, to our pages once again. We tend to have a soft side for pole vault history and old timers that get up off the couch and pole vault. “Right off the bat, I met Flo Meiler, the oldest female pole vaulter in the world at age 85, who graciously posed for a photo with me, before going out and setting a world record, then bettering that new mark five more times.” John speaks from the heart and has a great time doing so. Good job!

Mike Soule and his G-Force Pole Vault Club will be a guest article for this issue. Bill Peyton writes about Mike and his High School and Club achievements. There is passion in this story and the effort that Mike puts into his program and the athletes around him. Great read!

August issue and September will both highlight two more influential coaches around the Nation and the sport of pole vault. Stay tuned and we will be back for the August issue before you know it.
