NPVA - National Pole Vault Association

The DC Vault 501(c)(3) branch - the National Pole Vault Association (NPVA) - promotes health, wellness and opportunity for underprivileged youth, emerging elite and elite athletes participating in the sport of Pole Vaulting.

The NPVA serves its participants based on the need of the individual athlete and community as a whole. This may include beginner to elite training programs, travel, educational and living expense assistance, access to professional grade equipment and facilities, access to elite level instruction, community engagement activities, exhibition events, and more.

Long term, the NPVA seeks to reinstate Pole Vaulting in the DC Public School system Track and Field program by supporting DCPS with equipment, instructors and officials. Regardless of DCPS's participation, the NPVA will provide DCPS students with the opportunity to participate in NPVA programming, with the objective of producing collegiate scholarship qualifying performances for DC youth.
