We work with athletes of all ages and skill levels. No matter your age, experience, or personal goals, pole vaulting can be an incredibly thrilling athletic experience. If you're a parent, or an athlete, here's what you'll need to know to get started with UTPVA.

Step 1 - Come meet us!

Call Head Coach Kody Pierce at (801)514-0648 to set up a facility visit & assessment.
The first session is always free so you can come try it out & decide whether pole vaulting & UTPVA are right for you! The facility visit and assessment gives those who are brand new to the pole vault an opportunity to try it out and it gives our coaches the opportunity to assess seasoned athletes individual needs and how we can help them achieve their pole vaulting goals.
