  • Bill Falk's Pole Vault Camp for Athletes & Coaches


We're disappointed to inform you that we must cancel our 2021 Pole Vault Camp at this time.

With the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic our country is currently facing, and the various restrictions on large group gatherings, and the specific COVID-19 policies set by Rhode Island College, it has become increasingly difficult to host our camp safely and in the manner we all enjoy. This has truly been a difficult decision, but ensuring the health and safety of our campers and staff continues to be our top priority during this unprecedented time.

We always love seeing athletes and coaches at our camps, and will certainly miss catching up with everyone again this year. But, don't worry - both our Pole Vault and Throws Camps will be back and better than ever! In the meantime, please continue to be safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events in the future!


Our emphasis is teaching fundamentals in small groups, not on competition. Our exceptional staff includes track & field college coaches who are specialists in their events. There is a trainer at all sessions. Our goal is to make sure each attendee leaves with added knowledge in his/her ability to accomplish the fundamentals necessary to improve performance.


All track & field schools are for boys/girls, high school and college athletes plus Masters' competitors. Tuition for all Bill Falk's schools includes School T-Shirt, instruction and insurance. Your deposit will be refunded if you cancel 2 weeks prior to the camp date. No refunds after that date. Bring your pole or implement if you wish, or we will provide one for you!
