Fees are $15 per individual ENTRY and $40 per relay (plus Paypal 3% processing fee). There are no limits in entries, we will be verifying all times to ensure seeding is properly done. We would prefer to have no "NT" seeds so that we can seed this entire meet and give legitimate estimated time schedules.
A reminder to coaches: This is an ENTRY fee and not a competition fee.
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!
