September Pole Vault Clinics, 2023 

Welcome to Shealy Athletics Pole Vault!

As of Septmber 1, 2023, we are no longer accepting credit card payments via the registration process.  In addition to our credit card company, the registration company has begun charging a commission on credit card payments that makes it too costly for us to do so through this site.  Payments can be made via Venmo, Zelle, cash or check.  I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.  Please contact me if questions.  Thank you!  Rusty Shealy 803-315-5998.

Shealy Athletics Pole Vault Clinics are the Best!!! There is a reason why we have coached 114 SCHS State Champions and 12 National Champions, as well as 4 collegiate National Champions since 1998. We also help to open college doors with top NCAA and NAIA pole vault coaches. Check us out and find out why we are called, "The Unfair Advantage!"

Our specialty is collaborating with coaches and athletes to develop the best pole vaulters possible.  We believe in learning by doing.  Clinic athletes are taken weekly through a series of highly successful and safe learning progressions, being taught by the best coaches worldwide.  We are experts at helping athletes to jump their highest, meeting the needs of each individual.  Put the odds in your favor by learning to vault safely and correctly.  Clinics are...

  • Open to all ability levels from beginner to very experienced.
  • Taught correctly from the start since bad habits are ingrained and difficult to change.
  • Highly encouraged for anyone interested in being the best vaulter they can be.
