Coaches are reminded that all athletes need to be properly equipped and to enforce all sportsmanship regulations.

Athletes are not permitted to have cell phones, IPods or other electronic devices in competition areas. Coaches will be permitted to use IPads or other tablets for coaching purposes.

Team camps should be set up as noted on the attached maps. Each tennis court will be split into two camps using the net as the divider. PLEASE CLEAN-UP YOUR CAMP FOLLOWING THE MEET.

Track Information:

400 meter, all-weather track. ONLY 1/4" spikes or less will be permitted. Athletes will be checked prior to entering the bullpen area (scoreboard end of stadium). One common finish line is used for all races. Athletes will only be permitted to enter the track at the bullpen and must to exit at the finish line area.

The stadium infield MUST remain clear at all times. Coaches and athletes found in the infield will be asked to leave the area immediately. Repeated offenses will result in disqualification. This is a NE District point of emphasis this year and will be strictly enforced.

Pole vault, long and high jump approaches are also all-weather. Only one coach per school will be permitted in these event areas.

Shot put and discus areas are outside of the stadium; however, all spectators will be required to purchase an entrance ticket in order to enter these areas. Shot put and discus pads are concrete (no spikes are permitted).

Chalk and tennis balls are the only markers to be used on the runways and track. No tape or other marking devices are permitted.

Uniforms: Do you have an athlete who requires a waiver to the typical uniform regulations for religious, medical, or other reasons? If so, you MUST obtain a waiver from the OHSAA Director of Track and Field, in order for that athlete to compete. This is a coaches responsibility and will be enforced according to the rule. There are no appeals or exceptions to this regulation.

Timing Re-call: Note, by rule, in the event of a malfunction by the timing crew system, the timing crews have the authority to recall a race to prevent runners from the unnecessary task of completing a race and having to re-run the race at a later time. This rule is only in effect with the pre-approval of the Games Committee. Timing crews and/or tournament managers and/or referees (in their pre-meet meeting with coaches) should alert coaches to what device will be used to re-call said race.

Implement Weigh-Ins:

The OHSAA no longer provides common implements for competition. In the shot put and discus, all competitors must have their implements verified as legal and then marked as such prior to competition. By rule, illegal implements must be confiscated until after the competition has concluded. A list of all confiscated implements will be forwarded to the Regional Meet manager for verification the following week. Likewise, all legal implements are held until released to the competitors for warm-ups. Competitors who throw an implement that is incorrect weight or size, will be disqualified from further competition in that event. Meet management does not furnish towels in case of inclement weather. It is the schools responsibility to furnish their own towels.

Shotputs and discus will be weighed in on Wednesday and Friday from 2:45-3:15 at the team shop underneath the home bleachers. All verified implements will then be transported to the competition areas.
