Over the last four years Vaulter Magazine and our club (Vaulter Club) has had the wonderful opportunity to deal with some of the largest track and field suppliers in the world. We’ve been extremely blessed to have such a strong relationship with many of these companies. Support in this sport is not easy and we understand that commitment is more than just saying that we have your back, it’s a step forward with a giving hand with strong understanding. When you get a chance to see some of these advertisers please take a serious moment and thank them for doing their part in keeping our magazine and this sport pressing forward.

Starting April 1, 2016 Vaulter Magazine has teamed up with UST-ESSX and VS Athletics to help support pole vaulters and track athletes from near and far.

VS Athletics www.vsathletics.com has pledge to support our 2017 calendar program for all of 2017 Calendars and the rest of 2016 calendar entries.

Shealy Athletics needs no introduction from our magazine, but we will introduce the company anyway! Years back when we started the magazine, Rusty Shealy told us about this young lady named Sandi Morris that left High School and started college.

“Watch out for this girl” Rusty stated. We’ve kept our eye on Sandi for years. We also keep our eye on the rest of the athletes that Rusty helps to train. Year after year he continues to advertise with us and believes in what we deliver to the pole vaulting community.

Are there still clubs around that can get the job done?  We say YES and www.shealyathletics.com is where you start!

“The Unfair Advantage” to say the least.

Don’t take it from us, just ask some of the kids that pole vault for this club.

Thank you Rusty and we appreciate your long time support.

Vaulter Magazine will continue to look for supports of our cause and our magazine throughout the year.  This will NOT be the last newsletter that you see from us and our supporters. Thank you all for your support and we look forward to a wonderful 2016.

Executive Director, Vaulter Magazine – Vaulter Club
