Re: Is this Box legal/safe?

They might if you point out your concern, and have other coaches with the same opinion and concerns speak up . It's worth a shoot. We need coaches like yourself that keep their eyes open and try to manage the risks in this event for the athletes we coach. Good luck and keep it safe

Re: Swing Up Drill without High Bar

Re: Derek Miles upgraded to 2008 Olympic Bronze
