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.

Product Details
Thank you to our Advertisers. The partners that help our cause, the companies that bring this magazine to you every month! Thank you!
On the cover this month we have our first coach of many for 2019. Kevin Hall from the Vault Barn.

June is here and many of you are out of school or very close to it. Soon you will be getting ready for a full summer of pole vaulting. Many will go to camp, some will find the nearest street or beach vault, many will choose the route of USATF and AAU Nationals to keep them busy all summer long. Best of all you have the options out there to get the job done.

With that said, John Clark is back, and he’s been working hard as usual. One of the hardest working Master’s Vaulter around. “A week after torrential thunderstorms washed out the Texas Senior Games track and field competition in San Antonio, it was back to work at Jack Chapman’s Texas Elite Pole Vaulting club in Killeen.”

Kreager Taber has hit the ball out of the park with this article about Cornelius Warmerdam. The worlds greatest pole vaulter is a story that can’t be missed. “Growing up on a farm close to Hanford, California, Warmerdam and his brothers created a makeshift pole vaulting pit after becoming interested in the sport. In an interview with Track and Field News, Warmerdam stated, “I don’t know why one of us wasn’t killed”. The story goes on from there and should not be missed.

On the cover, we have the Vault Barn out of Texas. Part of our coaches series, we highlight some of the best coaches around the United States. Club and school coaches are a highlight and should be recognized. It takes a lot to start an athlete off with no knowledge of pole vault and send them off to college after jumping 17’. “As a head high school track coach for 22 years, a football offensive and defensive coordinator for 20 years, a strength and conditioning coach for 11 years, and an Athletic Director for 9 years, Hall has had his fair share of public school coaching.” There is a lot to be learned from this coach and you can read it all here.

We will catch up again in July and hopefully, everyone will have that summer vibe under control. We would like to thank all of our supporters and our team here at Vaulter Magazine that makes this happen each month. We have social media personal, writers, design staff, editors and more, that work tirelessly to make all of this happen! Thank you!
