Please note that the AVA and/or USEF Rule Books are the best resource for REQUIREMENTS. Read them! Much of the information below is simply suggestions based on experience.
Following is a sample schedule for an unrecognized, small vaulting competition: For this example, assume that the Bay Flyers Club (a club with a couple of years of competition experience) decided at a club meeting just after Nationals to hold a Fest the following summer. The coach feels that the vaulters need additional competition experience and the parents are interested. Do not ask your coach to be involved in event management! They should advise only. Ms. Smith, an enthusiastic parent, calls other clubs in her area to be sure that the selected date will not conflict with any else’s plans. At the same time, she assesses interest in her event and asks if there are any specific classes in which the other clubs are interested.
