        Hudson Valley Flying Circus Pole Vault Project, LLC   Warwick Valley, NY


       There’s no mountain too high.

       This is especially true in athletic participation. Congratulations to the 35 Flying Circus Pole Vault athletes this past weekend at the New Jersey State Groups Championships at the Toms River Bubble. Each and every one has climbed the mountain this past three months with unbelievable motivation and dedication….the results are inspiring…but ..the real treat is in the effort and spirit of each athlete. The cheering and support by every club mate is what drives the athletes in our little club. Thank you all for rising above.. just the performance barometer and into the world of shared joy. Now..it’s back to work and chasing dreams!!
