Substitutions: If you have a student athlete entered in an event, but they are unable to compete,

a teammate is allowed to take their place during the meet. Only the student athlete is asked to

check in after the event call is made. All coaches are asked to only communicate with the student

athlete, but give them directions to check-in for their events. Understand the original student

athlete entered in the event will be listed in the overall results.

Registration Closes: Thursday, March 12th by 7:59 a.m.

USATF Starter: USATF will be providing a certified starter for this event.

Fully Automatic Timing: We will have FAT timing with a digital board showing results after

each running event. We will also encourage coaches to serve as back-up timers.

Coaches From Other Schools: We ask ALL Head and Assistant Coaches from each school

participating in this event to volunteer as officials for all field events and assist in the exchange

zones during all relays. We will also ask for volunteers to serve at the start/finish line as back up

timers, including during distance events. Lastly, we will need ALL coaches and athletes to assist

in moving hurdles on and off the track effectively. Your staff will receive an email giving you

an opportunity to sign up for volunteer official duties you prefer to work. Please understand field

event officials will be selected based on when you sign up for duties. Our T&F program will

provide several volunteers or coaches from our staff to also serve.

Limits to Team Entries: 4 individual entries per event per team in all running and throwing

events; 3 entries per event per team in relay, horizontal and vertical jumping events. Unlimited

entries per team for the 800 meter and the 1600 meter run.

Uniforms/Jewelry: Understanding we will more than likely deal with colder temperatures, we

simply ask for your team to wear matching uniforms or athletic attire that represents your school

and includes your school colors. Student athletes are reminded they cannot compete while

wearing jewelry, but watches are are allowed to be worn during events.

Facilities: The Trinity Lions T&F program will be providing concessions at this event.

Bathrooms are located on the first floor of the press box, outside of the fence area. Teams will be

allowed to set up tents outside of the fence, next to the stadium bleachers on both sides, but not

in the infield. We ask for all coaches to please keep your athletes off the infield and away from

the timing system and finish line area during all running events. Of course, once your student

athlete hears their event call, they will be asked to report to the check-in tent located in the

infield area.

Check-in Table: All student athletes competing in field events (jumps & throws) will check in

where their event is located. Any student athlete competing in an individual running event will

first report to the Assistant Clerk who is in charge of the Heat Sheets. This clerk will provide

information to the student athlete that will indicate both the lane and heat the student athlete will

compete in during the meet. Next, this individual will walk over to the Check-in Tent to speak to

the Clerk of Course, reporting the information received from the Assistant Clerk. Only the last

runner (anchor runner) participating on a relay team will be asked to follow the same procedure.

Warm-up Area: Warm-ups are allowed in the infield once a student athlete is properly checked

in for their event. Athletes are also able to use hurdles for warm-ups, but reminded to leave this

equipment where it's located. When the 4x400 meter relay (1600 meter relay) begins, all student

athletes may report to the infield to cheer on their team, once they do not interfere with the

timing system and or the event.

Meet Announcer: We will provide a meet announcer for this event. There will be important

announcements before, during, and at the end of the meet.

Heats/Trials: This will be an all finals event as we will not host prelims. The field events will

include 3 attempts only. Based on the amount of athletes participating officials may only

measure the first throw and the horizontal jump attempted for each participant. After this takes

place officials would measure the top 8 distances/marks. We will start the High Jump at the

lowest height depending on the minimum entry for the student athlete competing in the Middle

School divisions. The Varsity Girls High Jump minimum height will start at 4'2 and the Varsity

Boys High Jump minimum height will start at 5'0.

Scoring: The top eight places will be scored at this event: 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1.

Results: We plan to announce the top 8 results as soon as they are completed. We also plan to

post results on the lower part of the press-box.

MS Regulations: If you have a Middle School student athlete participating in the hurdle

event(s), please indicate these details ahead of time as there is a strong chance they will run in a

Varsity heat.
