TRACK FACILITY INFORMATION
Spikes Runners and Jumpers may wear spikes or racing flats. Spikes must be pyramid-shaped and no longer than 1/4 inch. Needle spikes and spikes longer than 1/4 inch will not be allowed on the track or on any of the runways. Coaches, communicate this to your athletes so that they have the type of spikes they need. Thank you for your help.
TRACK CONDUCT/ATHLETE WARM-UP: Our goal is to provide a showcase in which your athletes may compete, and to allow them access to proper warm-up and preparation for their events. With this goal in mind, we would ask that head coaches make sure that their athletes and assistant coaches follow these guidelines:
1.Warm-ups are on main field: Athletes preparing for their next event are
allowed on the field. NO SPECTATORS SHOULD BE ON THE MAIN FIELD. ATHLETES NOT CURRENTLY COMPETING OR WARMING UP SHOULD NOT BE ON THE MAIN FIELD.
2. Finish Line/F.A.T/Timers’ area: Coaches and athletes are not allowed in this area.
3. Press Box: Athletes are not allowed in this area. We want to keep this area clear for
meet officials. Results will be announced and posted as soon as they are available.
Ribbons will be given to 1st-6th places.
We will post results on the back wall of the stadium as they become available.
There will be team trophies awarded to the top boy’s team and the top girl’s team. Scoring willbe 10-8-6-4-2-1. All events will be scored.
Awards and results will be mailed to teams. Results will also be available on athletic.net following the meet.
