Editor’s Note: Nurturing Excellence in Pole Vaulting

In this edition, we explore the vibrant world of pole vaulting, particularly focusing on the distinguished program at the University of Kansas (KU). Doug Bouma takes us on a comprehensive journey, unveiling the rich tapestry of history, talent, and camaraderie that defines this exhilarating discipline.

Unveiling the Dynamics of Pole Vaulting at Kansas University: A Comprehensive Insight by Doug Bouma delves into the intricate workings of KU’s pole vaulting program. From the foundational elements embodied by the university’s emblematic mascot, the Jayhawk, to the coaching legacy of stalwart Tom Hays, Bouma paints a vivid picture of excellence and dedication. The program’s commitment to unity, recruitment standards, and state-of-the-art equipment further solidifies its position among the nation’s elite.

Draining Lactic Acid: Effective Strategies for Pole Vaulters sheds light on a common challenge faced by pole vaulters – lactic acid build-up. Bouma presents practical techniques, from low-intensity exercise to massage therapy, offering invaluable insights to enhance recovery and performance.

In Hydration and the Sport of Pole Vault, Bouma underscores the critical importance of hydration for pole vaulters’ strength, endurance, and overall well-being. By emphasizing the detrimental effects of dehydration and providing actionable hydration guidelines, this article serves as a vital resource for athletes striving for peak performance.

As we navigate the realms of athleticism, recovery, and optimal performance, our meticulous exploration offers a compelling narrative of dedication, resilience, and triumph. Whether scaling new heights on the track or nurturing camaraderie off it, KU’s pole vaulting program exemplifies a legacy of excellence that continues to inspire.

We made it, 2022 is finally here for the taking! We look forward to a full season ahead for all the kids and adults. We start off New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day at the 2022 EXPO Explosion in Belton, Texas. What an amazing meet with some of the best gear in the Nation. What a great way to start out your year. All self-funded through the entries and sponsors of the meet.

2022 will have some twists and turns we are sure, but we are hoping for a full open society where athletes can train and have meets throughout the year. The covid stain is still upon us after two years and we are hoping that it finally passes and stops in its tracks. Happy New Year to you all and we look forward to the following year.

This month on the cover we have the Vaulter Magazine we will feature camps and clubs as we head into the new year. This year Vaulter Magazine had it’s first guest camp at the facility with Time Reilly and the camp was full of knowledge and fulfillment. “It was such a knowledgeable camp that everyone could learn a lot from and have stuff to take back. Their toolbox was definitely full when they left!” Great read and full of information.

Matt Barry is back with his camp information for all of us following along. Matt has coached camps at Pole Vault Atlanta for many years and has developed some of the best athletes in the Nation. “The club scene has now taken over the youth pole vault world in the United States.Athletes tend to lean more toward the club scene than simply picking up the sport at their local middle/high schools.I believe one of the largest contributing factors to this is because of instructional camps.” We must agree and you will too, read more within.

Next month we will feature more coaches with more insight into the sport of pole vault. We will also feature a few colleges and universities, not to mention a few pro athletes. Stay tuned as we head into February.
