**A reminder that your athlete can not exceed the event limits set by the VHSL.**

3. You may enter up to three athletes per event (other than relays), regardless of qualifying
standards. However, if you enter more than three athletes in any event (other than a relay,
ALL athletes you enter must have met the Conference 32 Qualifying Standards (enclosed). Please follow VHSL guidelines with your entries (i.e. limitations)

11. The enclosed page, "Information for Athletes and Coaches" is very important. To avoid
misunderstandings, please be sure that you understand the sheet and that your athletes
understand their responsibilities. You may wish to photocopy this sheet and distribute
it to your athletes. The meet is for the athletes, and the last thing we want to do is
disqualify someone for being in the wrong place or doing the wrong thing at the wrong
time. If you and they understand what is expected, we'll have a good, smooth meet.

Information for Coaches and Athletes

1. During the field event competition, coaches may watch field events from the track area
but must stay off the infield. Non-competing athletes must remain outside the track surface during field events. The only individuals with permission to be in the infield are meet officials and athletes currently participating in an event. Once the running trials begin, coaches must also move outside the oval.

2. Coaches and non-competing athletes must stay away from the starting and finishing lines
of the running events, except for those athletes competing in the race in question.
Violation may result in disqualification.

3. We will ask that there be no loud playing of music, etc.

4. In running events, contestants should report to the Clerk of Course on first call, regardless
of the heat entered. Those not present for the second call may be scratched. First calls
will be given about 15 minutes before a race is scheduled, second calls about 10 minutes prior to an event and third calls five minutes before. An athlete must report for himself. Running events take precedence over field events.

5. In field events, only the first call will be given over the PA system. At the first call,
contestants should report to the assigned field event area where second and third calls
will be given.

6. In a running event, contestants should remain in assigned lanes at the finish line until
released by the head finish line judge.

be distributed by the clerk when runners report for the race and will be worn on the front
of the uniform jersey.

10. Remember that the VHSL that states an athlete can be scratched from an event and still compete in the rest of his or her events without being disqualified from the rest of the meet. Entry limitations will be enforced.
