Clerking in for your event:
All clerking for track events will be done on the track in the area designated as “Check IN”. Each coach will be emailed a list of entry numbers for your athletes prior to the meet. We hope this will allow coaches to accurately assign the numbers to their athletes before the meet begins.

The clerk will assign all runners to an appropriate heat and starting position based on the pre meet performance list. Coaches will receive a pre meet performance list prior to the meet.

All field events will report directly to the field event judge at each field event location. The field event judge will assign each field event competitor to an appropriate flight and will announce the order of each flight based on the pre meet performance list.

All athletes are responsible for bringing their own legal implements. We will not provide implements. All implements should meet the weight and measures standards and should be safe to use. Throwing an implement that is altered is grounds for disqualification, even if it occurs during the warm-up period. We will inspect implements before the competition begins.
