November is here and by now you should be back to your five or six step training and learning all the necessary skills to be a proficient vaulter. With that comes some cool meets that have to do with traditions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas next month. At the Vaulter Facility we always have a thankful meet and at that meet we make sure and take the time to have the athletes write a note to the parents expressing their thankfulness. When the parents walk in, they get the handwritten note from their athlete. Always a great way to start off the day and a thankful meet.

On the cover we have a club out of Illinois named Rise Pole Vault. “Tim Winder taught his sons the three big rules about the pole vault:

1) If you run through, you get worse.

2) If you take a jump up but do not finish it, you stay the same.

3) If you finish your jump, no matter how ugly, you get a little bit better. “

What a great teaching experience and article to read from a set of club coaches with years of experience.

It is impressive to read these articles that Daniel Bush submits to us each month. This one is a Halloween themed article that flows with the last couple articles over the last few months. “Annie stole the show once again, her braided blonde pig tails bouncing behind her as she bounded down the runway. After nailing another big jump, the roaring applause of the crowd drew a satisfying smile from this emerging elite athlete.” Better and better each month as this true professional shows us how the writing world manages business and a pole vault family all in one.

We all have so much to be thankful for and Abby explains some of and one of the nicest gestures that one of her athletes handed her this time of the year. “It can make us forget just how blessed we are to be able to compete in this amazing sport called pole vaulting! When you stop and think about it for a minute you realize that you can do something that many people never will get to.” Being thankful is peaceful for the mind and soul. Thank you, Abby, very cool.

Next month we have the Naval Academy on the cover, and they always represent in a spectacular way. We will see you next month with some Christmas cheer.

California and its school systems have let the pole-vaulting athlete down as they cancel all their invitationals and state meet. We knew that it was not going to happen back in January, so why did they have to string everyone along for months. Was it for the track and field sales and raise money for the industry off the emotions of kids? Does it make them feel better to put out statements and schedules only to pull the rug later in the year? The last two years have shown the underbelly of the sport of track and field along with the type of management of the school systems and the sport. We would like to think that they dare to stand for the children, but for two years now, we have seen just the opposite. Now, we move on to May!

May is where it all is supposed to happen for the sport of pole vault. Spring is in the air, kids are getting some sun, and excitement for the season is in full force. Find what it is that makes you happy and go in that direction. There is so much in the pole vault world to look forward to. Keep charging forward and get that next bar!

Kent State is on the cover this month and they’re charged up and ready to go. Our writer, Sara knocks it out of the park with this article and her impact on the sport shows. “Coach Bill Lawson is focused on the goals he has for the squad: getting as many athletes as possible to regional championships, then maximizing their potential to qualify for the National Championships after that.” Have a read and see for yourself, big bars are already being cleared up there and many more to come.

Also from New York, we have the Hudson Valley Flying Circus as our featured club. Bubba Sparks is on a mission to highlight the clubs that are saving the sport around the world. You could be next, just contact us with your vision for the sport. “Hudson Valley Flying Circus Pole Vault Academy, established in 1996 by Coach Hugh Cauthers (Monrow-Woodbury, NY) and Coach Tim St. Lawrence(Warwick Valley, NY). I was a Middle School Physical Education teacher for 33 years and coached Boys Cross Country, Indoor Track, and Outdoor Track at Warwick Valley High School from 1974-2007”

Somehow all of the Olympics is a go as we face an increase of Covid-19 cases around the world and the people of Japan voicing their disdain for the action. Kaber has taken the time to write up an amazing article about all the recent Olympic news and findings. You should read this, a wealth of knowledge. “The continuous revision of these guidelines reflects the Olympic Committee’s commitment to ensuring that the Games are held as responsibly and safely as possible, despite recent worldwide spikes in COVID-19 cases.”

Matt Barry is back and focusing on the run-through epidemic that plagues some clubs around the nation. Matt is a huge influence on us as coaches for Vaulter Club and also the sport of pole vault as a whole. We are blessed to have him help us with our journey and we cherish his insight. “If the run is not addressed and well-controlled, rather than powerful or fast, then the rest of the vault will, too, be unsuccessful. “

June is next and we feel that it may not be as great for the sport of pole vault as planned. A huge surge in Covid-19 around the world is impacting the planning for the sport. Many companies are capitalizing on the build-up of the Olympic Trials, Olympics, and local meets and pulling the plug at the last minute. So, what we have to look forward to and rely on is the pole vault community as a whole that will come together and either save the sport or let it go. We have no plans of letting it go!
