Meet Information

MEET UPDATES (as of 1/30/21):

Greetings Coaches Parents and Athletes,
Please see todays updates and notifications below:
A SUCCESSFUL DAY 1
Day one of the 757 Showdown is in the books! We all witnessed some amazing performances on the track as well as the field! And a huge thanks to everyone for helping adhere to COVID guidelines by exiting at the end of sessions thus maintaining state regulations. Your compliance and support gives all of our kids a chance to compete! 
EVENT START TIMES

As a reminder the times listed below are the EVENT START TIMES not the ATHLETE ENTRANCE TIMES! Today we made accommodations for those not aware of this by slowing down the meet in the beginning of the day (we felt it was only fair). Huge shout out out to our meet officials and logistics crew who got us right back on schedule this helping us finish the day on time! 
WARM UP
Assuming all goes well we are letting athletes enter for warm up 30-40 minutes prior to the start of their event. Please note that we will do this as much as possible so athletes do not have to warm up in the cold. It is NOT possible to let everyone in at once. So if your event is more than 40-45 minutes away its recommended that you do not come to the facility before then. 
T-SHIRTS & HOODIES
For those of you seeking to purchase a t-shirt or hoodies they are going FAST! Some sizes and colors are sold out, but if you visit the table tomorrow you can place an order that will be shipped directly to your house (move over Amazon, LOL )! 
SCRATCHES
Day 2 is up next! A lot of more exciting action on the track and field. Please remind your athletes to bring their bibs as this is their access to the building. Ask if you have SCRATCHES PLEASE SEND THEM IN to our meet director (vapugh1va@gmail.com) ASAP! We want to run full heats to make the meet as efficient as possible!
OUR GOAL
Last, but not least, If there is any way our staff can serve you, your athletes, or parents please do not hesitate to ask. Our goal is to host meets that prioritizes the needs of those three people groups because you all are truly who the meets are for. We want to work for you and with you while at the same time having some fun! We count it a privilege to do so and cant wait to see you all tomorrow! 
Sincerely,
The 757 Showdown Team!

There are no limits in entries, we will be verifying all times to ensure seeding is properly done.

                  A reminder to coaches: This is an ENTRY fee and not a competition fee.

                  COVID-19 Protocols

                  Meet and facility management will be following CDC and State guidelines for hosting the 2021 event. This means there will be face mask requirements and assigned spots for spectators coming to this event. This section will be updated in the late fall as more information is available for how to proceed with an indoor sporting event.

                  Mask requirements: All spectators and coaches will need to be wearing a mask at all times. There are absolutely no exceptions for an indoor event. This is a private event so if you choose not to wear a mask you are welcome to enjoy our event from the comforts of your own home and watch the live stream.

                  Athlete mask requirements: All athletes will need to keep a mask on until their section is next on the track. That means once they enter the building they will need a mask on and to keep it on until their section is the next on the track. They will not have to race with it on, but after the race will need to put it on and exit the building soon thereafter.

                  Capacity: We are currently limited to 250 people in the entire facility at one time. This includes athletes, spectators, coaches, officials, timers, and facility staff. On top of that limit, we are limited to JUST 25 PAYING SPECTATORS at one time. We will thus be selling online tickets first come first serve!

                  Spectator Tickets

                  Saturday Tickets-Sunday Tickets

                  $25 - Ticket PER SESSION 

                  $10 - Coaches' Passes  PER SESSION

                  SESSIONS WILL BE POSTED HERE once registration closes on Monday, January 25th. 

                  PRE-SALE TICKET INFO will also be POSTED HERE once registration closes on Monday, January 25th.

                  Each ticket is non-refundable and good for one person only for that session. There is no minimum age-limit since ultimately the law says people, not adults.

                  We would loveeeeeee a large crowd, but with the current environment and prevailing restrictions, we are limited on the number of spectators allowed. We realize it is unfortunate that many will not be able to get tickets but are nevertheless happy that athletes get a chance to compete. Thankfully Milesplit will be streaming the meet LIVE so check out the meet page for the live stream link!

                  If you need any assistance with the meet please contact our Meet Director Vincent Pugh at vapugh1va@gmail.com or 757-284-9424.
