The Patriot Pole Vault Club is a privately owned USATF registered track and field club (#232 New England Association) based in Central Massachusetts. It was founded in 2002 in order to teach and promote the sport of pole vaulting in New England. For 2002-2004 it was strictly a summer club. In 2005 the club expanded practice time into the spring and fall seasons. All male and female athletes of any skill level ages 10 and up are eligible to participate. We welcome and encourage beginners – we provide a low-stress environment so athletes can learn the proper technical progressions without having the pressure of performance-based results.
