Dear Coach or Athletic Director:

The Charles City Invitational is one of the rare invitationals that invite schools from all levels to meet on a level playing field. Schools from private leagues, Group 1A up to Group 6A all have an equal opportunity to have the feel of a state track meet before actually experiencing the event! The CCHS Invitational invites teams from all levels and classifications, usually garnering more than 500 athletes participating at a single meet. Want a few reasons why to attend the CCHS Invitational? Here are some:

Facilities- Despite being a Group A school, Charles City High School offers an 8-lane rubberized track, two jumping pits, two shot and discus areas, and a high jump area. F.A.T. timing system is used and enough area for canopies and tents to be placed on the outside of the track or in the stands.

Location- Conveniently located between Richmond and Williamsburg, Charles City County High School makes it easy for teams from the Richmond Metro and Tidewater to come together as one. But that doesn’t limit competition from other areas as well! Teams from around the state are invited!

Experienced Staff and Atmosphere- Charles City County High School have dedicated workers whom have experienced in each of their respective events for numerous years. These workers have operated their event for nearly a decade and ensure fairness and competitiveness, while enforcing regulations and warning athletes of improper conduct. The atmosphere of the facility and staff include a concession stand that serves food all day during the track meet, restrooms, a wall to display results upon completion of the events, clerks of course to greet and assist athletes, and a meet director with more than 35 years of track & field experience.

Affordability- The Charles City Invitational understands how tight some school’s budgets can be, but we also want student-athletes to get ample opportunities to qualify for the state. The cost is $100 for one team and $150 for two teams!

*New this year

-This year, we will allow each team to have four athletes per event. We want to continue to help your student-athletes to advance to the highest level of competition and this is one of the ways we are electing to do that.

-For the first time, we are allowing individuals to participate in the meet. Cost of individuals is $20 each and they must be affiliated with a high school. Four or more athletes constitute as a team. (Individual entries should be emailed to
