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.

June flew by and now July is hear and the Olympic Trials are over. For the men, the top three are Chris Nilsen, Sam Kendricks, and Kc Lightfoot and for the ladies side, we have Katie Nageotte, Morgan Leleux, and Sandi Morris. We have a few new names heading to Tokyo for the Olympics. Congratulations to you all. July is going to be full of pole vault meets now that the states are quite open again. We will have the Tokyo Olympics, so the month will be quite packed. Vaulter Magazine National Championships is filling up quite well and will be one heck of competition for the high school and middle school athletes.

Elite Sportz out of Texas is on our cover for July 2021 and they are jumping in style. This club and team have always represented the sport very well with some of the best camps in the nation. “The day-to-day operations of Elite Sportz include private training, group training, clinics, and summer camps. Athletes will travel from all over the state of Texas to come train with the club, recognizing the quality of training they receive at Elite Sportz and making extreme efforts to be a part of it.”

North County Pole Vault Club was born out of adversity. With that said here is a story about a club out of California that has put its name in the books. “Our vaulters were starting to get attention from colleges, and other athletes began coming on board to train. That momentum and exposure have propelled us to where we are now. We attract athletes from several counties to come train in San Diego and have grown into the largest vault club in CA.”

Matt Barry is back at it with a second article about the bottom arm and how they accomplish this task. “Standing next to a handful of PVATL athletes and another coach, I said to myself, just loud enough for the others around me to hear it, that “the athlete couldn’t jump past their bottom arm”. Take the time to read this and Dave Butler's book that he has put together about the pole vault. Good job everyone!

The life of the pole vault with a zoom meeting. That seems to be the nature of the sport right now if you are following along with the Olympics and USATF. We wanted to go to the trials this year and had it all locked on, but you could not unless you showed proof of vaccination. So, as we looked into the crowd of empty seats, it is quite clear that people did not want to be part of that situation and stayed home. Once they all go broke and realize they cannot fill the stands, they will change their mandate or go broke. Next month we will start our coaching series and we have a treat for you and readers. Stay tuned.
