JumpStart Athletics was a brainstorm of Ian Maplethorpe and Cory Choma. Tired of having a difficult time finding quality equipment, we decided to research and create our own import company. Presently, JumpStart imports from Europe and Asia, and has quickly become an important player in the growing needs of the Track and Field industry. Ian is now the sole owner of JumpStart and has taken the business to the next level.
JSA Polanik carries throwing equipment, hurdles, blocks and high jump standards. Polanik is relatively new to North America. JumpStart Has been introducing this line in Canada with great success! The high-level JSA Polanik equipment is IAAF certified and were the implements of choice in the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton.
