Meet Information
Entries All entries must be submitted on DirectAthletics at www.directathletics.com. You can use your
existing DirectAthletics account or create one online.
Entry Deadline Wednesday, February 22; by 11:59pm.
Entry Marks Entering marks should be projections of your athletes performances for this point
of the season, not personal bests. This will ensure that each athlete will be placed into a
heat/flight that he or she can handle at this time of the year. You can enter an athlete with NT (no
time); however, he/she will be placed in the slowest heat or weakest flight.
Entry Limit Athletes are limited to three individual events. Teams are limited to one relay per
relay event. B teams, C teams, etc. can pay an additional entry fee of $5 per relay.
Entry Fee Entry fees are $10 per individual (who is entered in one or more individual events) and $10
per relay (an athlete who is in a relay only will not be charged an individual entry fee, only the relay is
charged). Maximum team amounts will be charged as follows: 13-20 athletes are $125; 21-30 athletes is
$150; and over 30 athletes is $175. Boys teams and girls teams are separate. Teams are limited to one
relay per relay event. B teams, C teams, etc. can pay an additional entry fee of $5 per relay this is in
addition to the maximum entry fee. Entry fees are based on the number of athletes and relays entered,
not the number who actually compete. You can make scratches up to 5:00pm on the day prior to the
meet (see below) and not be charged for those scratched entries. Make checks payable to The University
of Findlay Track & Field. We encourage you to send payment prior to meet day; however, you may
bring payment with you. Payment at the site will be accepted at the entrance of the track.
Scratches You may report any scratches via e-mail (maagb@findlay.edu) on the day prior to the meet
by 5:00pm. We will also take final scratches on meet day. We urge you to make scratches on the day
prior if possible to allow us to operate the meet more efficiently. Also, you will not be charged for
athletes and relays that you scratch prior to 5:00pm the day before the meet.

Inclement Weather - If your team is unable to make the meet due to inclement weather, PLEASE

Emergency in Hancock County. Should this occur, we will place a recorded message at 419-434-4117.
Meet Day Check-In Coaches must check-in immediately upon arrival in the main lobby of the
building. Coaches will receive an entry list detailing each athlete and relay entry as is currently entered
into our computer system. It is the coachs responsibility to double-check this entry list and report any
mistakes! Instructions will be given for making corrections, scratches and/or substitutions.
Time Schedule A tentative time schedule is posted on our website. A revised time schedule, based on
entries, will be posted on our website the day prior to the meet and will be made available on meet day.
We will still roll ahead of this final time schedule if possible.
Flight and Heat Sheets Flight and heat sheets will be posted on the bulletin boards outside the track
area in the hallway past the restrooms and training room. Field event flights will be posted
approximately 60 minutes prior to the start of the field events. Heat sheets for running events will be
posted approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of the first running event. Flights and heats may be
condensed during the course of the meet please inform your athletes!
Warm-Up Warm-up is permitted on the track as long as it does not interfere with any events in
progress. Athlete warm-up is not permitted in the finish line area once running events start. Crossing the
finish line may block the view of the camera; therefore, athletes and coaches are not permitted in the
vicinity of the finish line area while races are in progress. Please note that the 200m and the first lap of
the 400m are run entirely in lanes. Athletes should use lanes 4, 5, & 6 during multiple lap races.
Athlete Check-In Athletes competing in field events should check-in with the meet official at the event
site at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the event. All athletes competing in running events must
check-in at the hip number table near the 55-meter start line approximately 20 minutes prior to the
projected start of their event. We follow a rolling time schedule; therefore, the time schedule contains
tentative start times. First call, second call, etc. announcements will not be made it is the athletes
responsibility to check-in on time. The clerks will then stage competitors into the correct heat
approximately 5 minutes prior to the start of each race this will take place near the 55m starting line.
The clerk will then walk each heat to the starting line. It is imperative that athletes remain in the vicinity
of the staging area so that they do not miss their race.
Implement Weight-In Weigh-ins will be held if a record is broken. Shot puts must be for indoor use
Long & Triple Jump and Shot Put & Weight Throw Flights If there are four or more flights, the top
16-18 seeds will be placed in the first two flights and receive three attempts; the top 8 from these two
flights will advance to a final immediately after. The remaining competitors will receive 3 attempts; any
competitor achieving a mark that would have made the final will receive 3 additional attempts.

will consist of the top seeded vaulters; the remaining vaulters will compete in the second section
immediately after.
