5th Annual Birger Solberg Team Invitational
Date: Saturday, April 9, 2011
Location: Civic Field Athletic Complex, Bellingham WA
Start Times: Field events to start at 10am (HJ to start at 10:45 to accommodate steeplechase)
Track events to start at 10:00am
Coaches meeting at 9:30am
Host: Sehome High School Track & Field Team
Meet Philosophy: Our goal is to create an invitational that features high-level individual competition while emphasizing team competition and development. With this in mind, we will be granting each team one automatic entry per event; thus ensuring team representation in every contested event if a coach so chooses. After each team’s automatic entry per event, we will be filling heats/flights from the next best marks. Please only register athletes you believe are deserving of competing in the meet. If you enter your entire roster, I will likely email and ask you to resubmit it. We are planning to field roughly 4 heats/flights depending upon the number of competitors entered and natural breaks in entry marks. Our desire is to ensure that all athletes who can be competitive in an event are granted the opportunity to compete. Athletes who have not achieved start-height for PV and HJ will not be entered into the events.
Entry Fee: $120 for full team, $75 for boys or girls teams only
Individual/small group athletes: please contact Kevin Ryan for costs
Contact Info: Sehome High School, 2700 Bill McDonald Pkwy, Bellingham WA 98225
Head Coach: Kevin Ryan, 360-510-4288, email@example.com
New Event: Frosh/Soph 1600 meters. On the girls side of this event we may just turn it into two heats, depending on the make-up of the entries. For example, if nearly half of the field for the main 1600m is made up of freshmen and sophomores, we will fill the second heat from times, allowing girls of all grades to compete.
Schedule: We employ a rolling schedule, meaning that events will be run in immediate succession without delay. Please inform athletes and parents of this and instruct athletes to pay close attention to the calls over the public address system. All races are timed finals (no preliminary/final heats for running events).
Timing: FAT timing will be used for all races with hand-times as back-ups
Registration: All teams must be registered via Athletic.net by 6pm Tuesday, April 5.
Concessions: Concessions consisting of pizza, Bakers Breakfast Cookies, coffee, bottled water, and Pepsi products will be provided with proceeds to benefit Mariners Track Boosters. Meet t-shirts and sweatshirts will be sold near the main entrance.
Ticket prices: Ticket prices: $5 Adults, $3 for Seniors/children (12 & under)/or with ASB
Meet programs: Programs will be available for purchase for $1 with proceeds to benefit Mariner Track Boosters. Changes in meet entries made after Tuesday, April 5 will not be reflected in the meet program.
