Meet Information

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 will all have an equal opportunity ot have the feel of a state track meet in what has become one of the premiere meets that occurs every fourth Saturday in the month of March. Last year's rendition of the CCHS Invitational garnered 600 athletes representing 20 schools from Spotsylvania to Norfolk. Here is what the CCHS Invitational offers:

Facilities- Despite being a Group 1A school, Charles City High School offers an 8-lane rubberized track, two jumping pits, two shot and discus areas, and a high jump area. Fully Automated TIming is used and there is enough space 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 areas to come together as one. But this doesn't limit competition from other areas as well, as 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 more than a decade and ensures 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 at the 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 and track programs budgets can be, but we also want student-athletes to receive ample opportunities to qualify for district, regional, and state competition. The cost of our meet is $100 for one team/gender and $150 for two teams/genders. Individuals are $20/person, with four or more athletes constituting as a team.

*Entries information

-Each team is allowed up to four athletes per event. We want to continue to help your student-athletes advance to the highest level of competition possible and this is one of the ways we are electing to do that.
