Pole vaulting is a progressive event. In order for athletes to improve throughout their careers as their technique gets better and as they physically grow they will need access to a succession of longer and stiffer poles to use. The goal of every program is to provide the proper pole progressions for your more skilled vaulters throughout their careers while at the same time accommodating the rest of your squad. The big problem is with poles costing between $400 and $700 apiece and with track budgets being slashed all the time keeping a fully stacked pole inventory with the proper pole progressions is near impossible.
In Forrest’s case this was an extreme example but the point is clear. Keeping your vaulters provided with the poles they need is an expensive proposition. With that in mind the Patriot Pole Vault Club works extremely hard to make the pole vault more affordable to everyone with our seasonal pole rental service. For over 10 years we have provided a cost-effective and flexible way to supply your athletes with the poles they need. Our pole inventory has expanded to over 550 poles and last year we rented out over 420 of them to over 110 different scholastic & collegiate institutions and individuals throughout New England, New York and even Delaware.

Please note that our rental program is meant to SUPPLEMENT current high school and college inventories and is not meant to be the only source of poles. We encourage all schools to purchase at least 1 or 2 poles per year to help build up their own inventories.
