This is the December 2015 Stanford University Issue of VAULTER Magazine. Most sought after print magazine for The Pole Vaulter and the pole vaulting fan. Now you have the unfair advantage in pole vault!
‘Tis the season—the season to be with family, to be thankful, to play
in the snow, to bake Christmas cookies with the family, the season of
counting down the days to Christmas! Hang in there, Christmas Break is
almost here! Just kick back and relax next to a warm fire with a cup of
hot chocolate, because we have a fun Christmas issue for you!
Vaulter Magazine focused on Christmas Break this issue. Christmas
season is about being thankful and giving. Giving back to your
pole-vault community is something you can do to show how grateful you
are for the club and high school that has taught you so much. Without
your club or high school, you would not be where you are today in the
world of pole vault. Check out the article “Giving Back” to see how you
can show your appreciation by helping the new vaulters or the little
vaultlings this season.
Another thing that happens over
Christmas Break is going to your club or high school to train. It is
then that you will have multiple coaches—your club/high school coach and
your college coach, or your club coach and high school coach. Sometimes
it is hard to listen to several coaches especially when the coaching
style is not the same. This month, we have an article telling you how
you can be open minded to multiple coaches. Do not shut anyone out,
accept the help you can get, that is how you can improve as a pole
On our cover this month is the Stanford Elves with
their two coaches, Santa and the Abominable Snowman! Coach Michael
Eskind has a great lineup of Stanford vaulters this season with some new
faces and some successful returners. Toby Stevenson’s alma mater is not
a school you want to miss. This school has so much to offer its
students and its athletes. You will see this successful team in the
future—check them out!
Enjoy our Christmas issue! There are
some Christmas pole vault fun facts as well as some fun ideas to try. We
hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season and a nice relaxing Christmas
Break. We look forward to starting the New Year by seeing you all at the
Reno Pole Vault Summit next month! Until then, fly high!
