It is widely known that helmets should not be used when vaulting, but less widely understood why. This page introduces the basics, while our Fall g-Force Calculator page goes into all the details, provides a tool to help assess the level of risk, and states the Risk Management Guidelines for Vaulting.
This page provides a technical overview of how to calculate the force a vaulter experiences during a fall, including an introduction to g-force calculations with references and sources, an official test method that uses readily available tools, comparisons to other sports, and finally, recommendations specific to vaulting.
This page is to contain announcements from VaultCanada and the provinces together in one place. If you have something to post here please contact [email protected] or your province's web editor .
This page contains some helpful links for sites that you will probably need sooner or later :)
