A message from NFHS Coordinator of Sports Andrea Mortimer

It has come to my attention that there is a pole vault pole being manufactured with a secondary weight label on the pole. It is being advertised so that you could use one pole for two weights. This is a variable weight pole and per NFHS rules 6-5-4 it would not be permitted in competition and warm-ups. 

NFHS Rule 6-5-4: A competitor shall not use a variable weight pole, a pole which is improperly marked, or a pole rated below his/her weight, or any other equipment that is not legal during warm-up or competition.
