The competitor's weight must be at or below the manufacturer's pole rating. It is the responsibility of the parent or coach to verify the competitor will use a legal pole rated at or above his/her weight.

Poles will be impounded at the time of inspection and delivered to the competition site at the time of the event warm-up.
