Individuals: If you do not have a team, but have individual athletes, copy this information and pass on to the interested parent. These athletes should be entered as UNATTACHED rather than by a team name. Also, athletes may register with the team/school name where they attend as long as the HS Bd of Ed has approved indoor track. This also allows the athlete to be eligible for and qualify to/compete in the State Indoor Meet. An athlete whose BOE has not approved Indoor Track would register as unattached and would not be eligible for qualification to the Indoor State Track Meet.
