Fundraiser for pole vault pit.

Unread postby J.lay » Tue Mar 14, 2017 9:20 am

Hey guys. I was the 4A high school state champ for North Carolina this indoor season and part of the Lake Norman High School pole vault team, the number 1 team in the state thanks to our wonderful coach Eric Richard. We have 3 people over 13 feet and several on their way, and our pit is becoming dangerous. Our standards are practically unusable and we often hit the pallets through the mats while vaulting. All of us know how expensive pole vaulting is, so we need help because track gets very little funding from the state. Any and all donations are accepted and I would be incredibly thankful for any contribution. Thanky you so much guys!

I bought a great used pit through this site on the sales forum for $3000. It came with top bad and weather cover. all in great shape. Make sure to give used options a try. There's one guy specifically that refurbishes them and sells quite a bit.

Hi! I was just about to post a used pole vault pit that includes cover, top pad and standards. I can separate out the standards.
The pit's is generally in great condition. About 8 years old with lots and lots of life left in it. I'm almost sure it's international size, definitely NCAA...UCS brand. There is one small tear on the underside and a zipper is broken on one piece.
The cover has a couple of seams that are torn, but is otherwise intact.
The top pad is just a year old and like new.

It could be used as-is or have an upholsterer repair the cover and zipper.

I've got pics and more info. if you are interested.
Good luck!

Hey guys, sorry I never got back earlier. We actually did follow your advice and got a set of used ucs standards so we can put the bar at a good height. Thanks for the advice
