The events will start on time at 3pm on Friday and 8am on Saturday, so please don't be late.
Friday we will have a coaches meeting on the infield at 2:30 (Head Coaches Only).
The coaches will be responsible for setup and prep of the Jump Pits and the Throwing Ring.
Coaches will need to officiate events until they are relieved by an ATFOA Official. Most officials will arrive before 3:00pm but we will have a few that will arrive a little later. Please assist with this because we are on a time limit with the infield. If we are not finished in the infield by 6pm we will have to close competition.
Have your athletes start warming up and getting their run throughs upon arrival.
All warm ups will end and pits will be closed at 2:50pm for 1st call / 2:55 2nd call / 3:00 Last and Final call. All athletes need to check in with the clerks by 3:00pm or they will be scratched. At 3pm we will start jumping and throwing
Shot Put - Warm up throws will be conducted in the throwing ring ONLY. Athletes are not to warm up in any other area, no exceptions! Once the event starts there will be no more warm up throws (Check your rules). We will not be running the throwers in flights. Each thrower will get 4 throws, they will have 2 options.
Option #1 – Will be to throw all 4 attempts on their first trial and only the longest throw will get measured. The athlete will then be finished with competition for the day.
Option #2 – Will be to throw 2 attempts on their first trial and 2 more throws on their second trial. Only the longest throw from each trial will be measured.
Girls and boys will start at the same time, we will have 2 rings. This event must be completed by 6pm so please keep the event moving so all of the athletes can compete.
Long Jump - Boys will be jumping from lane 6 and girls will be jumping from lane 2. The jumps will be "Open Pit" style with each jumper getting three jumps (all three will be measured and the athlete can jump whenever they want during the open pit time). Lane 2 will be shut down at 5pm for the running of the 3200m and will open again after it is completed (safety). If the boys finish early the girls will be able to slide over and complete their jumping in lane 6 if lane 2 is still closed. Have your High Jumper go at the end so they can compete in the High Jump first but they must get their marks during the beginning warm up period, we will not be putting down measuring tapes in the middle of an open pit session for athletes to get their marks.
High Jump - The High Jump Pits will be set up on the infield on the South Half of the field. We will not be jumping across the track. We will have two pits so the girls and boys will be jumping at the same time. This event must be completed by 6pm so please keep the event moving so all of the athletes can compete. Starting heights for this event will be 4ft for the girls and 5ft for the boys.
3200m - This event will start at 5pm and we will start with the girl first. I will look at the number of athletes competing and then decide on the number of heats we will run. The meet director will make the call with the head official on the number of heats we will run. This event will be hand timed like always until the championships. We will be clerking the event at the starting line so have your athletes ready (First call at 4:50 / Second call at 4:55 / Last and final call at 5:00).
No coaches meeting afterwards - results will be posted on-line at Athletic.net that night.
Saturday morning we will have our coaches meeting at 7:30 upstairs (Head Coaches Only)
The order of events will be as follows - 100m & 110m Hurdles / 100m / 1600m / 4x100m Relay / 400m / Short INTERMISSION / 300m Hurdles / 800m / 200m / 4x400m Relay
We will run multiple heats for the 1600m based on number of athletes. We will be staggering athletes, 3 runners in each lane for the 800m.
We will be starting at 8am sharp so please have your athletes ready. We will be using the south end zone for staging and for the athletes to warm up. THE END ZONE IS NOT AN AREA FOR ATHLETES TO CHILL OUT FOR THE DAY. If they are not competing they need to be in the stands with everyone else. I will be enforcing this myself.
No Coaches on the infield or the track for running events (we are starting this early so everyone gets used to it). Coaches will be given access to the infield and track on Friday for field events only. Please make parents aware they are also not allowed on the infield. We are seeing a large amount of coaches and parents going to the infield to “Check” there athlete. The only exception to this is for injuries.
No athletes are to cross over the track to get to the infield this season, they must use the overpass walkway or they will not be competing.
The clerks and officials will be officiating this event as regular track meet, enforcing all of the rules and regulations set forth by the NHFS and they will be disqualifying athletes if needed. This will be happening every week this season for consistency towards Regions.
Staging and Clerking of the races will happen in the South End Zone.
First call will happen 15 minutes before a race
Second call 10 minutes
Last and final call 5 minutes
If an athlete reports in after the final call they will not be competing and scratched. Athletes need to be on time and ready to race, the starters will be pushing the pace this year to get more heats in, if an athlete is not ready to go when told they be scratched from the race.
We will be providing starting blocks this year while indoors. The blocks will be moved to the starting line by the officials and the blocks are not to be moved off the line for any reason by an athlete. If we have an equipment issue the official will examine the block and replace it if needed. No blocks will be used other than the ones provided.
Results will again not be posted at the dome, we will be posting on-line at Athletic.net and they will more than likely be ready before you return to your schools. The idea is to get in and get out and run as many athletes as we can during the time provided. We are looking at 2pm to be out of the dome and no coaches meeting again afterwards.
Tom Pargeter and Jake Peterson will be the Head Officials for both days. If you have any questions about officiating / rules / officials / calls etc.... please direct those question to them, not me (I am not an official). The officials association operates outside ASD as an independent organization under contract. The officials will run the meets as directed by me and the will have final say about Track and Field rules and regulations. All officials this season have been certified through NFHS Track and Field.
Please print this e-mail out and provide a copy for your assistant coaches / athletes / parents.
Let me know if you have any questions....
