Hosted by Assumption High School Track & Field (Louisville, KY)

We welcome this year's participants to compete in two afternoons of exciting MS Track & Field action, with an opportunity to compete under the lights in one of our signature events.  The meet consists of Elite level competition in a wide number of events, and an additional Open section for teams to run what amounts to their second group of athletes.


MEET LOCATION:  the Assumption HS track facility, the Assumption Green, is located at 4500 Champions Trace Ln, at the corner of Champions Trace and Newburg Rd just south of the I-264.  Please email Coach Barry Haworth for directions if you need them.

This meet is only open to competition involving 6th, 7th and 8th grade athletes.  To maximize the opportunity for 6th-8th grade athletes to compete, we do not allow younger athletes to run up.  Any athlete entered that is below 6th grade will be dropped from the meet. Coaches of younger athletes are encouraged to note that our Derby Elementary Classic meet is on Sunday, March 17.

This meet is open to both club and school teams in good standing with meet management. Note that club teams have specific restrictions placed (only) on their relay team entries.

ENTRY DEADLINE: 11:59pm, Tuesday, March 19

If the meet reaches capacity prior to the entry deadline, then we reserve the right to close entries before that deadline. If the meet closes early, then we will place teams on a (first come-first listed) waiting list and allow them into the meet if room becomes available. Coaches are encouraged to enter the meet as early as possible.

Athletes can be entered in the Elite Division or in the Open Division

Once the deadline arrives, all entries are final. No exceptions (this meet is a significant undertaking, and we need sufficient time to seed races, prepare competitor numbers, etc.)

Each teams final entry fees is determined by their entries prior to the meet, and not by the number of participants in the meet.

Coaches are responsible for reading the meet literature in its entirety.


$70 for one Girls team (for teams with fewer than 9 girls: $8 per competitor)

$70 for one Boys team (for teams with fewer than 9 boys: $8 per competitor)

Please note that no team will be issued a coaches packet with competitor numbers until their entry fees are paid or payment is verified.
