3. The Administrator or designee from the teams designated by the District Committee will be the school representatives.
4. The Head Coach who filed the appeal will be given a maximum of 5 minutes to state their argument.

5. Following the coaches' forum, the committee members will vote in private.

This is how this meet will run. We feel that utilizing the National Federation rules and procedures will reduce the amount of appeals by putting the decisions into the hands of a neutral meet referee. This would allow the coaches to coach and the appeals jury would only be called in the event that the referee’s decision is not accepted by the parties involved. We are prepared to offer an independent meet referee. Neither of which have any ties to this league or the member schools. The meet referee will have significant background in track and field.

The committee chair will be responsible for documenting the proceeding and recording the outcome.
The meet director shall supervise the conduct of the meet and perform such duties to guarantee the competition will run smoothly. When there is no games committee, the meet director shall have general supervision of the meet and perform those duties assigned to the games committee.
The referee is directly in charge of activities during the meet. The referee shall answer questions which are not specifically placed under the jurisdiction of other officials.
The referee has the sole authority to determine if a race shall be rerun, and if so, who is eligible to participate in the rerun and when it should be scheduled.
Note: Refer to the Case Book for guidelines to follow in determining whether a race should be rerun. See corresponding Case Rule for Situation 3.4.3
When a competitor is disqualified, the referee shall notify or cause to be notified, the competitor or the competitor’s coach, of the disqualification.
The referee has the sole authority for ruling on infractions or irregularities not covered within the rules. The referee may seek the advice of the head umpire or field referee/head field judge before making a ruling. The referee is also authorized to disqualify a competitor who commits an infraction personally observed by the referee.
A coach first appeals to the referee. If the coach still feels that the terms and conditions of competition or the application of the rules have been misapplied or misinterpreted, a written appeal shall be made to the jury.
Situations which are subject to appeal include, but are not limited to
Misapplication of the rules which must be filed within 30 minutes after the announcement of event results.
Correction of clerical or team scoring errors which may be corrected up to 48 hours after the end of the meet, unless another time period is specified in advance by the games committee or meet director.
Correction of meet results involving an ineligible participant which may be made at any time when discovered.
Failure to follow a procedure contained in the terms and conditions of competition announced in advance by the games committee or meet director. This would include such items as the time schedule, the number of qualifiers to advance, number of trials, etc.
Any judgment decision pertaining to violations or alleged violations of the rules.
A decision made by the finish judges or timers that does not involve misapplication of a rule, or the terms and conditions of competition.
Whether a start is fair and legal.

Friday field events are set so that races and field events that conflict at state will also conflict at the district meet.
The Saturday schedule for district could not really be built to conflict because of the difference in the state schedules. The field events that conflict with each other at state still somewhat conflict at district.
