Pole Vault Information

Athletes Traveling with Their Vaulting Poles
For those athletes traveling with their poles, the local organizing committee (LOC) will provide transportation from the airport to the stadium once per day beginning June 19th. Athletes will verify that their poles arrived and then provide the claim check to LOC staff at the Airport Information Desk located in baggage claim.
Athletes must provide their baggage claim check with an LOC staff at the Airport Information Desk located in both terminals. Poles will be delivered to the venue and will be available for use the next morning.
The LOC will provide return service of pole vault equipment to the airport.  Vaulting Poles will be transferred back to the airport where the athlete can pick them and route them to their final destination. Athletes must submit a completed pole vault transfer form at the venue, and LOC staff will provide information on the specific pick-up location.
Athletes can choose to transfer their vaulting poles independently of the LOC.  Poles can still be stored onsite.
Athletes Shipping Vaulting Poles
Athletes shipping their vaulting poles must fill out the following Shipping and Delivery Form found in Appendix X. Please email the completed form no later than Friday, June 16th at 5:00 PM to Michele Frayne- and Kody Keroher-
Delivery acceptance for Pole Vault equipment is as follows:

  • Monday through Friday ONLY June 14-June 23 – 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

  • No deliveries will be accepted on the weekends

All equipment must be picked up for return shipment no later than 5:00 PM on Monday, June 26th. The University cannot accept poles earlier than Monday, June 19th or store them after Monday, June 26th.  The athlete will need to make other accommodations if they need to ship them outside that window.

Pole Vault Poles Storage
Pole vault poles will be stored on site and locked in Sac State athletics storage sheds adjacent to the warm- up track. In order to avoid storage confusion, athletes must clearly identify poles bundles with a label that includes the competitors’ name and the divisions that he/she will be competing in prior to arrival.
