Pole Vault Ramp

In March of 2018 we saw a video that we thought was cool (see here).  So we decided to build our own ramp for our pole vaulters to use!

After much research and planning from our JAC engineering team, we set aside a Saturday in August to build our ramp.  With 7 guys we were able to complete our project in around 4 hours.  We can't wait for our vaulters to use it!

Please see below for some more info on our ramp.  Come visit anytime to use it!
