Kody Pierce has been coaching pole vault since 2006. In his tenure at Bingham High School & UTPVA he has coached 6 State record holders, 8 State champions, over 20 Region champions, and countless State contenders. Every year athletes from both Bingham High & UTPVA are some of the best vaulters in the State. In his quest to become a better coach, he has spent time traveling to various camps & coaching clinics & has learned from some of the best coaches in the country. After several years at Bingham High School he started realizing the lack of vault coaches in the community & the desire of the athletes to continue training year round. So, slowly over a several year process, he started Utah Pole Vault Academy and in 2015 built his own indoor facility where UTPVA continues to train year round. Kody had a high school pr of 13' 6", which he broke in 2017 at the National Pole Vault Summit jumping an all time best of 14'.
