Local High School Track Use

Unread postby KTB5 » Fri Jun 20, 2014 8:49 pm

Hello all,

I am just a casual vaulter, nothing exceptional. A single year dedicated to vaulting my senior year of high school.
A lot of hard work allowed me to clear 12' in a few short months.

At this point I am about to be a sophomore in college and have no intentions of vaulting at any college, I would however enjoy continuing to vault.
Thus the reason for my post.

There is a high school less than a 4 minute drive from my house and, like all high schools, they have put their mats away for the summer.
My question then: If I have my own mats and poles could I use the Eisenhower High School runway during the summer?

I see people using the track all the time and there is nothing posted about not using the track or anything within the fence enclosure.


Interested to hear your thoughts and thanks for reading.

It's up to the school, but their answer is probably no.

If you have poles and pits, just make a runway in your yard.
