“MOTIVATED YOUNG ATHLETES”
Some people set higher standards for themselves. They come out early for practice and they stay late. They always seem to find the time to do things right. They have that ‘inner spirit’ and that positive approach to every set back… they lead others by example…they encourage others with soft words…. The motivated athletes take an interest in others…. they are respected by all for their HARD WORK ETHIC….. they actually pole vault for each other and never look back. This is the true beauty of Flying Circus Pole Vault.
NEVER GIVING UP IS THE POINT
COMPETING with CLASS ..IS THE POINT.
CARING for OTHERS >>>IS THE POINT.
STAYING HUMBLE>>>IS THE POINT.
MEASURING UP TO YOUR BEST…IS THE POINT.
… THANK YOU FOR POLE VAULTING @ FLYING CIRCUS
