Pole Sales and Leasing.
When purchasing a new pole, and with budgets so tight, we ask the right questions to make sure you get the correct size pole the first time.  Pole leasing is also an affordable option as well. The biggest benefit and budget saver when leasing is that you can trade poles for other sizes as vaulters improve their skills, saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Contact Rusty for more information, 803-315-5998.

Congratulations 2017 State Champions!

Five of our Pole Vault Clinic athletes won SCHS State Championships in 2017. This brings our total to ninety-six SCHS State Champions and a handful of NCHS State Champions since 1998. 

Also, congratulations to all of our vaulters on a great high school season with many personal bests and school records. And a very special thank you to the many coaches that allow us to tag team coach their athletes, as well as the wonderful parents. Without the supportive parents none of this would be possible. Together we are making a difference.  Thank you!

Congratulations Sommer Knight of Woodland High School who set the SCHSL State Meet Record!!!
