        “The POLE VAULT FIRE has been LIT”…by the 66 Up-and-Coming Winter Club Flying Circus athletes and 40 additional Pole Vault Rising Stars’ attending our “SUPER SUNDAYS” Open Sessions every weekend. The energy…enthusiasm and positive focus on these technical training sessions has been AWE-INSPIRING every session and the technique improvements have been huge already. We here at Flying Circus believe in the “POWER of POSITIVITY” … as each athlete inspires other team members to reach for HIGH STANDARDS of ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION. We believe …that there are NO SHORT CUTS to the TOP PERFORMANCES in POLE VAULTING. MAKE TRAINING -A-PRIORITY EVERYDAY!!!!!   
       WE BELIEVE each athlete must build and grind out the work… in the Weight Room… in the Sprint Workouts…in the Drills Progressions and in 3 Days a Week vaulting sessions.
