Field Events/Equipment: Water-Bottle High Jump Crossbar Rope

Dick Moss, Editor, PE Update.com

High jump crossbars are expensive, difficult to store, and can be intimidating for novice jumpers, who fear landing on top of them.

Here's an inexpensive alternative that won't scare your rookie jumpers: tie water-filled plastic bottles to each end of a rope and drape the rope over the high jump standards.

The weight of the bottles will pull the rope taut, making an effective “crossbar.” Unsuccessful jumpers can land on it all day without hurting themselves. And you don't need an eight-foot storage room to store a rope-crossbar—you can hide it away in a small box.
