The Pole Vault Initiative
Team Hoot is Donating $5 from Every Item Sold to Pole Vault Programs.
Anyone in the sport long enough sees that the pole vault excels when young vaulters and coaches have access to good education and proper equipment/poles.
In the summer of 2019 I decided to tackle these two issues starting with writing a pole vault book along with creating a video for 12 of the chapters in the book to help vaulters and coaches learn the event safely.
The equipment/pole issue was much more complicated. I couldn't just buy poles for schools, or could I? I thought, maybe if I take $5 from every item sold on my site, I could raise enough money to buy poles for pole vault programs. That's what we're doing
I reached out to all of the major USA pole brands for help and I'm excited to announce that ESSX, Fiber Sport, Gill Athletics and UCS Spirit have all partnered with the project.
How it works
- For every item you you purchase off of the site you get your name put into a drawing.
- At checkout there is a box that asks what school or club you'd like to donate too.
- When that pot gets to $1,000 I'll randomly draw a name and the winner will get to choose whatever club or program they want to receive $1,000 worth of poles to grow that vault program.
- If your name wasn't drawn your name stay in the pot until next time!
UCS Spirit will match Team Hoot’s donation with an additional drawing and $1000 of poles when UCS/Spirit is chosen and provide a Team Hoot discount on poles for the winners of the Pole Vault Initiative.
Gill Athletics will provide a Team Hoot discount on Gill poles for the winners of the Pole Vault Initiative.
Fiber Sport will provide a Team Hoot discount on Fiber Sport poles and the Rock Back pole case for the winners of the Pole Vault Initiative
ESSX will provide a Team Hoot discount on ESSX poles for the winners of the Pole Vault Initiative.
