There will be a coaches meeting with the meet and site director on the infield 30 minutes prior to the first event for each gender meet.
MEET INFORMATION (READ CLEARLY): All individual field event entries must be submitted by THURSDAY 5/27 an NOON, using this FIELD EVENT ENTRY FORM. If you need to change the name of a field event competitor after this point, see the finish line Hy-Tek operator on meet day to do so manually. THERE ARE NO FIELD EVENT CARDS.
PERFORMANCE LIST/ FIELD EVENT FLIGHTS- this is the performance list for your meet. If you would like to down seed any running event, or scratch one, please see the timer at the finish line before the start of the meet on the day of. No team will be allowed to improve on its seed time.
FIELD EVENT FLIGHTS- at this time, we are not allowing teams to switch field event flights. These include built in warm up time, and should allow for ample time to check out for a running event within the hour long flight. We took great care to avoid multiple athletes overlapping field event times, but we can not guarantee every need will be satisfied. Flights will start on time, never early. Athletes will be allowed to jump out of order, BUT NOT IN A DIFFERENT FLIGHT.
