    The Hudson Valley Flying Circus Pole Vault Club
    The Scenic Warwick Valley, NY

    The 2021 Circus Indoor Pole Vault Meet Tour was a huge success this year… providing 16 competitive gathering for students to show their new skills and to keep the flame and dreams alive. Thank you to all parents…staff and athletes for making our club a wonderful and connected experience for all of us. We will now move into a six week training zone with our High School and Middle School teams and we should start to try more events that are related to pole vault development….. such as Sprinting…Hurdling…and Jumping events…along with pole vault and Relay racing. This will all help the development of athletism…. the cross training effect to becoming a btter athlete and better pole vaulter. Our Club Meets for Elite and Rising Stars will fire up at Circus BarnYard in June and we will finish at our Summer Festival on July 9-10. BRING on THE OUTDOOR SEASON.!!!!!!
