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.

State comes and goes but how does it come and go in other states like California? Here in California, there is one state champion for the entire state in both the girls’ and boys’ division. One of the largest states in the United, you would think they would eventually find a better way. It is not equal for all athletes in the state of California and there are advantages to not being in the southern section California, the toughest and hardest section in California CIF. Other states like South Carolina, Texas, Georgia, and others are managed a bit different.Which is best, is beyond us, but this issue will give you some insight.

On the cover we have a boy athlete participating in the 2022 master’s division of California state. Big bend and killer inversion took place right after this vault. We had the wonderful opportunity to be on hand with our cameras to get the shots and see what the state meet is all about. Sara has some rightful insight with some well-known coaches about the state process. Fun to see and read what other states go through to get to state.

AZPVA and a great write up by Jason Yarbrough a parent with a great boy pole vaulter out of SoCal. “When Jan stepped away to focus on his camps, Dean stepped in as Cal Poly coach for several years and continued his personal vaulting career through the mid 1990’s capping a 19’5 PR and touted at the time as having the most 19 foot clearances of any American vaulter in history.” What a great read and we are honored to know Dean and Jason both.

Next month it is all about the long road to nationals and the ins and outs of which nationals to choose. There are a few of them and different levels that you can choose from depending on the heights that you make as a vaulter. Stay tuned, it will be a fun one.
