Pole Vault Areas Now Required to Include Box Collar

This new collar covers the inner part of the plant box, as well as the outside (see flyer linked below). The planting box shall not contain any foreign materials except planting box padding. Such padding, if used, shall meet the applicable ASTM Specification Standards, and can be incorporated into the design of the planting box or can be a padding addition to an existing planting box.


1.) Padding meeting the ASTM Standards may be used immediately, subject to rejection or conditional approval by state association action.

2.) Padding meeting the ASTM Standards shall be required for the start of the 2014-15 track and field season.
