Welcome to February, everyone! One of the coldest months of winter, thank goodness it is the shortest month! Indoor season has kicked off and track season has officially started!
We have a lot of Reno photos for you this month. We hope that everyone had a great time!
In this issue we have a quick little article talking about the 2016 USATF Indoor Championships in March. This meet will be an awesome one to watch. For those of you trying to qualify, good luck! If you do not know anything about this competition for pole vault, we have given you the basic information you will need to know. The qualifying standards for this meet should bring in some great competition of elites and college athletes. Don’t miss this meet next month, you will get to watch the best-of-the-best in the country compete for a national title!
Also this month we have an article on why you need to put all your trust in your coach. Your coach is there to make you the best you can be. They can see what your vault looks like and are able to determine the best thing for you to do. They are not going to tell you something you should not do. They want you to be your best. What you need to do is trust what they say and do it. They believe in you as their athlete, and you need to believe in them as your coach. Flip on over to this article—this information could really help you.
We have a new writer: Mr. Mike Soule. Mike is a masters pole vaulter and he has written an article to our post-collegiate/master pole vaulters. He writes that if you want to start pole vaulting again, no matter how long you have been retired, you should do it. In his article, he tells you how to get started. He started vaulting again after being out of it for a while, and he loves it. Remember how much you used to love it back-in-the-day? You will love it just the same once you start back up! Check out his article—it is a great read!
On our cover this month is the San Diego State University lady Aztecs. Coach Richard Fox has built quite the legacy at SDSU and his lady vaulters are sure to make him proud in the upcoming season. This school has so much to offer its pole vaulters. Coach Fox has produced so many great vaulters and has many success stories in his 21 seasons as the pole vault coach. This school’s story is not one you will want to miss, so jump on over to this article and enjoy!
That is all for now! Now that season has started we hope to see all your improvements. We couldn’t keep going if it weren’t for all of you who support us. Until next month, fly high!
