  • If an athlete is in another event (track or field) a coach or parent may check-in that athlete. That athlete must report no later than the final call.
  • Unless checking in an athlete who is competing in another event, no coaches or parents will be permitted within the check-in area.
  • Athletes who have checked in will not be permitted to leave check in area.
  • After the final call and athletes have been moved for lane and hip assignments, the event will be closed and no other athletes will be permitted to compete.
  • It is the coaches’ and parent’s responsibility to make sure that athletes check into only the events they have been entered.  This effort will prevent confusion in clerking area and ensure an efficient track and field competition.
