At The Championships -

1) Bus Parking The east parking lot, nearest the track, will have an attendant from 7:30 until 9:00. This lot will be reserved for buses until 9:00. Please park around the curbing from the exit back toward the school first before parking in the spaces. This will make it easier for everyone to park and leave the lot. If your bus arrives later than 9:00 you will have to find a place the best you can.

2) Stadium Entry Athletes arriving with their coaches will be allowed entry at the athletes gate. If an athlete is arriving at a different time, then you must leave their number with their name at that entrance. If it is a significant number of athletes, please leave a coach at the gate to give the number to the correct athlete. A number attached to an athlete will allow him/her to pass through the gates all day. If an athlete is caught giving a number to anyone for the purpose a free pass to get someone through the gate, that number will be confiscated and the athlete will be taken out of the meet. All others and athletes without numbers must pay the $5.00 entry fee.

3) Team Camps - you may set up your team area at the top of the hill on the north and west side of the stadium, provided you do not block the walkways. You may also set up tents in the visitor side stands. Tents are not allowed in the home stands or on the hill on either side of the home stands.

4) Other Off limit areas- No coaches or athletes are allowed on the infield except those that are competing, officiating or waiting for a heat/section. The other athletic facilities including all buildings are off-limits. The back fields may be used for warm-ups.

5) Clerking procedure All athletes in running events must report to the clerk no later than 15 minutes before the start of their race. The athlete should have on the correct uniform and his/her assigned number. All four members of the relay team must be present to check in the team. Those that do not report may be scratched from the event.

6) Protests A protest sheet must be filled out and presented to the referee, stating the specific rule violation, if you would like to file a protest. The referee will make a decision based upon what you write and may talk with you before any decision is made.
