Throwing Implements & Vaulting Poles

Throwing Implements

Personal Implements

Athletes will be permitted to use their own implements for competition provided they pass implement inspection. Meet organizers will provide a limited supply of implements for use by competitors, during competition, not wishing to use their own implements or whose implements have not passed inspection. All throwing implements must be inspected prior to competition. Personal implements, once approved for competition, lose their identity as privately owned implements for the duration of the competition and may be used by any competitor. Once implements are checked in they are impounded. Athletes not advancing to the next round may pick up their implements at the Implement Inspection Room about a half hour after the completion of the qualifying round. Implements of those qualifying for the finals will remain impounded. No modification may be made to any implement during the competition. Implements that do not comply with certification specifications shall be impounded for the duration of the competition. A list of non-certified implements will be posted at the Implement Inspection Room as the information becomes available.

Equipment bags will be inspected. Athletes will not be allowed to have any implements in equipment bags taken to the Competition Venue. Athletes with practice implements must leave the extra implements at the first check-in table at the warm-up track. Implements may be retrieved after competition is completed. All implements must be marked with the athlete's name.

Implement Check-In

Implements must be presented at the Implement Inspection Room, located on the back side of the Field House, no later than 3 hours prior to the scheduled start of the event. In some cases, the three-hour minimum may mean that an athlete must turn his/her implement in the night before the event. The Field House is located just outside the fence on the south end of the warm-up track. Implements will be impounded until completion of competition. All implements must be marked with the athlete's name. Athletes must provide their own implements for practice.
