” ARE YOU READY” ……..The Name of the Game in Athletics is “MOTIVATION”.

The concept of PERSONAL MOTIVATION is the KEY to SUCCESS and we here at FLYING CIRCUS POLE VAULT get to witness the “Best of High School Athletic Motivation” everyday. We are privileged and inspired by the dedication of our young vaulters…the Beginner vaulters learning the drills…the Intermediate vaulters gaining strength… and the Elite vaulters showing the leadership skills necessary to reach the Top of the Mountain.
The real Power of Motivation…..
….. stems from the Day-to-Day Team Work Ethic…
….. the Commitment to Reach for Excellence…
….. the ‘Positive Spirit’ of Hard Work…
….. the Emphasis of Placing a Priority on Training….
….. the Understanding of the ‘Joys of Movement’
