Re: Next Pole

The next logical pole would be a 13' 155 if you have one available. If you blow though that pole too, move to a 13' 160. I would recommend increasing the weight rating of the of the pole before increasing the length. You will go higher using a shorter pole with proper form than a longer pole with po...

Looking for ideas: Using volleyball standards to make pole vault standards?

I have a backyard pit but cannot afford to purchase standards. I am trying to figure out how to build my own. I have some portable volleyball standards that are about 9 feet tall or so. Would it be possible to make pole vault standards out of these? I am looking for any ideas or suggestions.

Looking for advice

I am a high school student. I have just purchased a pit for my home. Can you just use the grass for the runway if the ground is flat? Maybe use strings to define a "path"? Also, does anyone have tips for installing the plant box straight into the ground?
