Summer Club

Rusty Shealy Pole Vault, Summer Club 2017. 
Begins Thursday, June 1st with our first practice.  Ending on Saturday, August 12th with our RSPV Club Championship.  To view the RSPV summer schedule for available meets, clinics and camps, click here: "Master Schedule" 

To Compete with RSPV Summer Club
  • When you pay monthly this summer for "Unlimited PV Clinics" you are automatically in Summer Club as well.
  • We are having "Unlimited PV Clinics" during the summer months to promote more pole vault development. Meaning, you can come to one clinic per day, every day we have clinics during the month if you like.
  • You can plan your clinics around your vacation and family schedule, alternating which days/times work best for you to get in as many sessions as you like.
(Note: If you would prefer to not to pay $160 monthly and take advantage of "Unlimited PV Clinics", you can pay per clinic the cost will be $40 per clinic.

RSPV Summer Club Fee: 
  • The Summer Club fee is included in the monthly Unlimited Pole Vault Clinics fee.  This way it should work better with everyones summer schedule, all meet fees are paid separately when you enter each meet.
What if I am already part of another local club? 
  • Not a problem.  Many of our vaulters compete with their local clubs, such as Mt. Pleasant Track Club, Florence Track Club, or Palmetto Track Club.  Other clubs coaches typically like for the vaulters to come to us for training.  When you compete in meets that your local club enters you into, such as the USATF Junior Olympics series of meets, you will be competing for them... and I will be at some of the meets for you as well.  Meets entered through us, you will compete with us.  However if you are competing with your local club, you will obtain your USATF membership number through them and not us.  You do not need to join twice. Let us know if questions.

What is included with RSPV Summer Club?
  • One competition singlet/tank top (Additional T-shirts and/or tank tops will be available for vaulter or family for $20).
  • Use of poles at no cost for all summer club meets. There is no cost to club athlete if pole broken during summer club. (Poles will also be available for non-club/clinic vaulters to lease for $25 during our home meets. Athlete will be responsible to replace if broken or damaged severely.)
  • No cost for all Shealy Athletics home meets.  (Non-RSPV summer club vaulters will pay a $20 entry fee per meet to compete.)
Summer Club Athlete's Responsibility:
  • Summer Club athlete will need to obtain membership with USATF to compete in USATF Junior Olympic meets. You may not need it if jumping only in other meets.
  • Summer Club athletes only pay for the meets you attend. We will be hosting some home meets, as well as there are other meets that you can sign up for. Dates can be found on the "Master Schedule". (Home meet fees: Club athletes $10, non-club athletes $20)
  • If you are interested in competing in the USATF Junior Olympic series of meets. Once your 2017 USATF membership is done and date of birth verified, I will enter you with our club entries and invoice you, usually about $6-$10 per USATF JO meet. Look at the dates on the "Master Schedule and let me know if you would like to jump in at least the first USATF JO meet. You can let me know about the others if/when you qualify to advance.
  • Athlete's family is responsible for the entry fee into any other summer meets, such as the Charlotte Street Vault.
  • Athlete's family is responsible for their own travel, lodging and food for meets.
  • If you are going to meets out of the tri-state (SC, NC, GA) area, such as USATF Junior Olympic Regionals in Jacksonville, FL and USATF Junior Olympic Nationals in Lawrence, KS, the cost for travel and lodging for Coach Shealy, if agreed upon by those attending, will be divided up by the number of vaulters going. The cost will be shared by the families attending so that Coach Shealy can be there to coach your kids.
