Coaches From Other Schools: We ask 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 initially giving you an opportunity to select two field events you prefer to work. Please understand field event officials will be selected based on responses and what is most fitting. Our T&F program will provide several volunteers or coaches from our staff will also serve in these areas.

Limits to Team Entries: 3 individual entries per event per team.

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/Check-in Table: The Trinity Lions T&F program will be providing concessions at this event. Also, bathrooms are located in the upper parking lot behind the stadium. Teams will be allowed to set up tents outside of the fence, 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. All student athletes in competing in field events will check in where their event is located. 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 are reminded to place this equipment back where it was found. 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 PA for this event. The PA will make important announcements before, during, and at the end of the meet, including event calls (1st, 2nd, and 3rd call).

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 horizontal jump attempted for each participant. After this takes place officials would measure the top 8 distances/marks.

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 in the stadium area. This location will be announced.
