Pole Vault Shipping

Refer to USATF Rule 302.5n. All competitors must provide their own vaulting poles. Implements used in the pole vault competition will be inspected at the pole vault area.

It is the responsibility of the parent or coach to verify that the competitor will use a legal pole rated at or above his/her weight.
