You must pay for each individual entered. All of your athletes can enter the meet. Entry fees are nonrefundable, so enter accordingly. Time permitting all athletes will compete.

Relays: An unattached athlete may not compete on a relay team (this is a USATF rule); clubs attending the meet are requested to provide 12 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. Therefore, use your athlete’s best mark in the 2009 season, seeding times / distances are necessary when you register.

Last heat of each age group in 100m, 200m and 400m will be designated as the fast heat. If you have an athlete that should be in the fast heat ensure you instruct your athlete to notify the clerk of the course when they check in. In addition, place the athlete’s fastest known time when entering the running event. We will make every attempt to verify marks.

CheckIn: There will be a 1st, 2nd and Final Call for all running and field events. All participants MUST checkin with the clerk of the course or at the field event by the FINAL CALL. Any athlete not checked in by the FINAL CALL, will be scratched from the event.

Volunteers: MVTFC will be providing all volunteers to run this meet. We want coaches and parents to be able to enjoy the meet and focus on coaching & cheering every participant 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 on infield except coaches clearly displaying 2009 PA/USATF membership ID cards and assisting SubBantam and Bantam Long and High jumpers setting marks. Coaches must leave when the event begins.

USATF Membership: PA/USATF Board voted that beginning with the 2007 T&F season all youth athletes must join PA/USATF before they can compete in a sanctioned USATF meet. Join before coming to the meet or at the meet.

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).
