NEW PV Safety Rule

Unread postby AVC Coach » Fri Apr 24, 2015 6:21 pm

This should be one of the first rules when you open the book:

Any athlete that has never touched a pole vault pole will not be afforded the opportunity to do so, for the first time, in a meet.

I know it would be hard to monitor this and justify automatic disqualification but it's a serious safety issue.
