please pass this information on to any parents or spectators attending the meet.
Meet Day Check-In – Coaches must check-in immediately upon arrival in the main lobby of the
building. Coaches will receive an entry list detailing each athlete and relay entry as is currently entered
into our computer system. It is the coach’s responsibility to double-check this entry list and report any
mistakes! Instructions will be given for making corrections, scratches and/or substitutions.
Time Schedule – A tentative time schedule is posted on our website. A revised time schedule, based on
entries, will be posted on our website the day prior to the meet and will be made available on meet day.
We will still roll ahead of this final time schedule if possible.
Flight and Heat Sheets – Flight and heat sheets will be posted on the bulletin boards outside the track
area in the hallway past the restrooms and training room. Field event flights will be posted
approximately 60 minutes prior to the start of the field events. Heat sheets for running events will be
posted approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of the first running event. Flights and heats may be condensed during the course of the meet – please inform your athletes!
Warm-Up – Warm-up is permitted on the track as long as it does not interfere with any events in
progress. Athlete warm-up is not permitted in the finish line area once running events start. Crossing the
finish line may block the view of the camera; therefore, athletes and coaches are not permitted in the
vicinity of the finish line area while races are in progress. Please note that the 200m and the first lap of
the 400m are run entirely in lanes. Athletes should use lanes 4, 5, & 6 during multiple lap races.
Athlete Check-In – Athletes competing in field events should check-in with the meet official at the event
site at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the event. All athletes competing in running events must
check-in at the hip number table near the 55-meter start line approximately 20 minutes prior to the
projected start of their event. We follow a rolling time schedule; therefore, the time schedule contains
tentative start times. First call, second call, etc. announcements will not be made – it is the athlete’s
responsibility to check-in on time. The clerks will then “stage” competitors into the correct heat
approximately 5 minutes prior to the start of each race— this will take place near the 55m starting line.
The clerk will then walk each heat to the starting line. It is imperative that athletes remain in the vicinity
of the staging area so that they do not miss their race.
Implement Weight-In – Weigh-ins will be held if a record is broken. Shot puts must be for indoor use
Long & Triple Jump and Shot Put & Weight Throw Flights – If there are four or more flights, the top
16-18 seeds will be placed in the first two flights and receive three attempts; the top 8 from these two
flights will advance to a final immediately after. The remaining competitors will receive 3 attempts; any
competitor achieving a mark that would have made the final will receive 3 additional attempts.
Pole Vault – If there are a large number of entrants, the PV will be split in 2 sections – the first section
will consist of the top seeded vaulters; the remaining vaulters will compete in the second section
