POLE VAULT SAFETY REQUIREMENTS:

  1. It is the responsibility of the coach to verify the competitor will use a pole rated at or above the vaulters body weight. (NFHS Rule 7-5-3) The competitor’s weight shall be at or below the manufacturer’s pole rating. The manufacturers must include on each pole: the pole rating that shall be a minimum of ¾ inch in a contrasting color located within or above the top hand-hold position; a 1-inch circular band indicating the maximum top hand-hold position with the position being determined by the manufacturer. Prior to competition, the coach must verify that all of the school’s pole vaulters and poles meet these requirements.
  2. Each vaulters weight must be verified and each pole checked to ensure compliance prior to practice and/or competition. Form should be turned in and verified before each competition.
    • Coaches, athletic directors and principals shall verify the athlete’s weight by correctly completing the pole vault weight verification form online. (Form TF-PV)
    • Once students are entered online, print a list of all of your pole vaulters. This list must be submitted to the meet manager prior to each meet. The online list should be updated as many times as necessary throughout the season.
    • Out of state schools participating in Kansas invitational/meets are to bring the weight verification form to each meet as well.
  3. Box Collar Padding is required and must meet ASTM standards. (NFHS Rule 7-5-14)
  4. Vaulting poles should be continuously inspected for cracks, dents or scratches which can reduce the original stress level of the pole.
  5. Pole Vault certification and safety guidelines are listed on page 22 and 23 of the KSHSAA Track and Field Manual.
