  • USATF Membership:
    All club youth athletes must be a USATF member before they can compete
    in a sanctioned USATF meet. Join before coming to the meet or at the
    meet. Unattached athletes do not need to be a USATF member.
    USATF membership applications will be available

      • NOTE:
        If a club is not a registered 2009 club in good standing then all athletes
        associated with that club will need to transition to another club or
        compete unattached. If the athlete chooses to compete unattached then
        they should not wear their club uniform (simple as turning it inside
        out if necessary)
  • Registration:
    Online registration must be received by midnight March 31st
    200. Same day registration = $12 per athlete and not accepted after
    7:00 am morning of the meet. Check the SSTC website (
    www.eteamz.com/StocktonSaints) to confirm unattached and club entries have
    been received. Use Club Manager to submit entries via Alicia at
    [email protected] .

      • NOTE:
        If you have never used Club Manager before contact Charlie Sheppard
        at
        [email protected]worldnet.att.net or 408-629.2617 to obtain a copy of the software
        and instructions how to load and use it on your computer.
  • Relays: An unattached athlete may not compete on a relay team (this is a USATF
    rule); clubs attending the meet are requested to provide 1-2 officials
    at the time of the relays to assist with relay exchange zone judging
    (meet at the finish line prior to the start of the first relay); remind
    your athletes to pull their tape from the track after they complete
    a relay exchange
  • Seeding:
    Our best efforts will be made to seed heats so that two athletes from
    the same club will not be in the same heat. Since this is a sectional
    meet seeding times / distances are not necessary when you register

      • Last heat of each age group
        in 100m, 200m and 400m is fast heat. If you have a youth athlete that
        should be in the fast heat ensure you instruct your athlete to notify
        the clerk area when they check in
  • Volunteers:
    SSTC will be providing all volunteers to run this meet. We want coaches
    and parents to be able to focus on coaching & cheering everyone
    as they compete; however, if you see an area that is struggling bring
    it to the attention of the meet director or jump in and help
  • Access to infield:
    No coaches or parents on infield except coaches clearly displaying 2009
    PA/USATF membership ID cards and assisting Sub-Bantam and Bantam long
    jumpers setting marks. Coaches must leave when the event begins
