How much does it cost to enter each meet?

The entry fee is $14per athlete per meet. Entry and spectator fees defray costs for facility rental, custodial hours, security, event crew, medals and awards, FAT timing, online registration, implements, and event supplies. Thank you for your support.

Absolutely.

Is club membership required?

No. Club affiliation is not required. Athletes not affiliated with a club should register as "unattached" when registering at coacho.com.

Is there an age minimum?

No.  Athletes of any age may compete in the meets. Competition age is determined by the athlete's age as of December 31 of the year. For example, an athlete with a July 1st birth date may be 12 years old as of March 1, but will compete as a 13 year old because he will be 13 as of December 31st of that year. 

Are age groups combined in competition?

Yes, on occasion. In instances where there are few athletes in a single age division, efficiency may dictate combining age divisions to form a single heat. Even so, athletes will be awarded medals within their respective age divisions. 

Who gets medals and awards?

At each meet, athletes finishing in first, second and third place, in each event, in each age division, by gender, receive gold, silver and bronze medals.

 

At the end of the season, clubs finishing in first, second and third place receive championship trophies, and qualifying athletes receive awards - including Track Excellence, Field Excellence, Most Improved, and Record Breaker.
