It may be, but rainbowgirl and I are in the same state--just different divisions. And she would know about this more than I would! I would trust her and assume the officials I've encountered have been making up their own rules!

Ha--well thats funny. Our first meet of the season the official enforced some such rule and I checked with my fellow coach and he told me it was in fact a rule.
Oh well--I don't mind them enforcing a rule about safety, even if it doesn't exist!

I guess I thought it was a rule because I have had several officials enforce it--any idea if there is a similar rule, maybe not explicitly 3 strikes, but DQed at the officials disgression?

I guess I've lucked out--I'm in a district here all the PV coaches (bar one) seem very with it and aware of their shortcomings. At meets we've always been very honest with each other, tossing advice back and forth. We work together to help the teams that don't have coaches at all--telling them to lo...

I didn't know Scully all that well--having vaulted throughout the PNW in high school, I definitely saw him all over the place. In fact, I vaulted up at Western frequently during the summers, so I know for a fact I saw him there. When I helped Becca out with a meet at King's not too long ago, I found...

I had two high bars installed at our stadium for my senior project--the only thing is that they are a little wobbly--I definitely rec. digging deeper (probably a bit deeper than you think) to avoid the wobbly top. I did metal bars down the side though, not wood--you don't have a lot of choice when t...

I think it ultimately depends on what exactly you're looking at. If you just want to see if polevaulting correlates with above average LJ marks, then training in the long jump is probably not necessary. Something else to look at is polevaulters exposure to LJ--most polevaulters have seen enough long...

Yeah, I just took my vault steps (minus the plant) over to the LJ runway--it was a while ago, but I'd guess it was a 7 step.
