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.

We’re at a crossroads with the sport of pole vaulting where our civil liberties and freedoms are being impacted every day. As we sit by in California and watch NBA games, MLB games, and other large riots and protests, we are still being told that our children cannot hold a competition and pole vault.

Although we have not heard of anyone getting COVID-19 personally or any death from it around us, we are seeing more of our children on drugs, alcohol, impacted with depression, and the list goes on. I am concerned with a couple of track and field events stating that they will not have pole vault, that eventually the sport will be lost. We feel that eventually, they will decide that the sport is not worth the effort in larger meets.

Sarah writes this month about Sophie Cook and she’s cooking up a comeback for 2021. “Cook, a British pole vaulter from Longborough, United Kingdom, made a strong entrance onto the professional scene by winning the British Championships title in February 2020 with a personal-best height of 4.50m. Her journey to reach this level has been a long and arduous one, yet her determination continues to keep her working hard no matter the circumstances.”

John is with Helen Croskell World champion Masters vaulter. “I look at some of the older athletes, and I think, ‘These people are amazing.’ At their age, it would be so easy to just say, ‘OK, I’m done with activity – I’m just going to play shuffleboard or something.’ Instead, they’re out there running and jumping, and I find that kind of attitude amazing, and something I want to surround myself with for the rest of my life … and hopefully be that person when I’m 80.”

Back at it again, we have Taber writing about USATF and their COVID-19 changes and the impact it will have going into 2021. “As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact athletes’ journeys to the Olympic Games, many vaulters have begun to compete often and find inspiration in the hope of competing with the world’s best in Tokyo.”

Next month we have Megan Clark and a young lady that is working to achieve all of her pole vaulting goals. Visited and helped out club multiple times and we always enjoy catching up with Megan.
