Vaulting Team Sponsorships Make a Difference

Fresh from national competition in Watsonville, California, the Warm Beach Vaulters have already begun their 2008-09 season with competitions in Chilliwack, B.C., and Auburn, Washington. Three teams and more than 20 young people will be traveling this year to British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon for competitions, and finally, to Lexington, Kentucky, for the national competition in July, 2009.

Warm Beach Vaulters come from all over the region, from British Columbia to Renton. They range in age from four years old to adult. In addition to the competition teams, the Warm Beach Vaulters also include nearly 20 recreational vaulters who enjoy weekly lessons.

Being a Warm Beach Vaulter is about more than just winning ribbons and traveling to interesting places. Young people are learning life lessons about responsibility, teamwork, and self-discipline, as well as creating lasting friendships and sharing the love of God with others.

As newly minted Bronze level vaulter Ryan Barbee said, “I like being on a team with all of the friends I have, and how my teammates help me. Vaulting has made me strong and fearless, and has helped me come closer to the Lord.”

Quinn Albright shared, that vaulting has “made me grow in believing in what I can do and not giving up.” These types of life lessons and life skills are really the heart of the vaulting program.

The Warm Beach Vaulters are so very thankful for generous sponsors who help our youth achieve their dreams. Sponsorships support the team costs of competition and the on-going equipment and horse-related needs of the program. Sponsorships help to keep the costs lower and enable more young people to take part in the program.

Hold on Tight!

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25 NLT Have you ever been in a situation where someone told you to hold on tight? ...
