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.

March Madness is here! What a great time to feature a club that coaches not only pole vault but also gymnastics in a unique way. The college indoor season is wrapping up or just about done, and the outdoor is underway for many high schools.

On the cover, we have Xtreme Heights pole vault club. We have been back and forth with this club asking about getting them on the cover, and now we have. We had a chance to meet at the summit, and he has one heck of a story as a head coach. “Born in the Ukraine, Val Osipenko began running track at the age of nine. When he was just 12 years old, Val picked up a pole for the first time, and the sport has been a huge part of his life ever since.”

Good job, Sam, great read.

John Clark, at the age of 62, has no room for stopping as a masters pole vaulter. He talks about his last two meets and the fun that he had, and he also has an announcement. “Last month marked the official release of my new book, “Finally Fit: It’s Never Too Late to Achieve a Dream.” This is the story of how learning to pole vault for the first time ever beginning at age 60 transformed – and most likely saved – my life.” Get your copy today on Amazon.

Kreager Taber talks about Mondo Duplantis and his world record breaker as he heads into the 202 Tokyo Olympics. “Duplantis began his record breaking month in Düsseldorf, Germany, where he easily cleared 6.00 meters and ended with a close miss at 6.17 meters, one centimeter above the previous world record set by Renaud Lavillenie of France in 2014.” Great to see history unfolding before our eyes, and this is an article you will not want to miss. Good job Kreager

The month of April will bring on San Diego State University. It’s been a couple of years, and a lot has happened for this team. Can’t wait to catch up.
