High School Pole Vault Pit Upgrades

The National Federation of High Schools Association (NFHS) has implemented a new rule, to increase the minimum size of high school pole vault pads. Rule 7, Section 4, Article 8 now requires the landing pad beyond the vault box to be a minimum of 19'8" w x 16'5" d, (20'5" from front to back) and 2" of foam padding between the plant box and all pads.

Protex Sport Products is offering Pole Vault Upgrade Kits as an alternative to purchasing an entirely new pole vault pit. The upgrade kits we are offering will fit existing Protex pits and may fit pits by other manufacturers.

Each kit will expand the back of your pit to 20' wide behind the standards and 16'5" long behind the plant box, making the total length 20'5" long or more.

A common one piece top landing pad (2" thick) is also included that will cover the entire pit surface. An 8' x 10' wide coaches box is outlined on the top pad.

Weather covers, ground covers, base pads, and vault box collar pads are available at an additional cost.

Provided your pit is in good condition, upgrade kits can provide an economical alternative to the purchase of a new landing pad.
