We have to share the facility with a Men's Volleyball Tournament on both Friday and Saturday.  We must be completed with running events no later than 4:00 p.m. each day.  We have adjusted the time schedule in an attempt to meet this new requirement.  We will work very hard to maintain an efficient and tight schedule.  Any assistance from the athletes to check-in early and report on time will be greatly appreciated!

Arrival - All athletes must collect their wrist band when they arrive at the fieldhouse.  Please arrive early to minimize the lines.  Packet collection for a full team would best be done on Friday.

Reporting for events - Athletes must check-in early for their event prior to seeding. You can mark your name at any time during the meet up until the sheet is removed for seeding.  This can be done for the full meet when you arrive in the annex.  Athletes that do not mark their name as present on the check-in sheets in the bullpen will be scratched in the seeding process.  Athletes that do not report when called will also be scratched.  Please arrive early and mark your name, then report for your event when you are called.  Events will be seeded after check-in so that we can reduce the number of empty lanes.  If you are scratched for not checking in, you will not be allowed to compete.  Please check in!

Rules - High School Rules will be fully enforced.  Certified officials will be at the meet.  Athletes that commit lane violations or fouls will be disqualified.

Admission - Admission for spectators is only $6 for adults and non-participating students each day.

Awards Ceremonies - Awards Ceremonies will be held immediately following each event.  Please have your athletes available!

Records - A list of the track records is posted; our thanks to Roger Buhrley. 

Coach's Mile - We have received requests to hold a Mile for the coaches.  If there is sufficient interest, we will hold a single co-ed race.  There must be at least 4 participants on the starting line for us to hold the race.  Recruit your friends!

Vertical Jumps - Height progressions:
Girl's Pole Vault: 1.83m (6-00) start, .15m (~6") progression
Boy's Pole Vault: 2.44m (8-00) start, .15m (~6") progression
Girl's High Jump: 1.23m (4-0.50) start, .05m (~2") progression

Map - A map to the Smith Fieldhouse on the BYU campus is available here.  Map

Coaches Meeting - We will hold a quick coach's meeting at 6:45 am on Saturday at the finish line.  Please be in attendance.  If you can not attend, please send a representative.  We will discuss rules and request the support of everyone in keeping competition areas clear and safe. 

Hip Numbers - Please advise your athletes that they should dispose of their hip numbers appropriately after their race.  Hip numbers that are placed on anything other than in the garbage will incur a $50 fine.  We use "permanent" adhesive on the hip numbers to help them stay on each athlete until the end of the race.  If a number is placed on the wall, a chair, a post, a fence, a hurdle, anywhere, in a short time, it is permanent.  It then requires a power washer or sand blaster to remove the number.  It is not cute to place your hip number on anything, even the track! Please advise your athletes that they should dispose of hip numbers in the garbage.  We gratefully appreciate your support in this matter!

Protocols -

Wrist band collection at the meet is one of our biggest challenges each year. We request that each coach, or a representative, help with the process, which will make it much simpler for everyone. Please follow these steps as a team or organization:
1. Please arrive, or have a representative arrive, on Friday after 4:00 pm to process wrist-band collection for all of your athletes.  If you are not able to have someone arrive on Friday, then you will have to fight the crowd on Saturday morning.  Doors will open 90 minutes before the first scheduled event.  It will be much easier to process your team as a group rather than as individuals.
2. Please remind your athletes that they will need their wristband to enter the facility each day, both Friday and Saturday.
3. Please request your athletes to be tidy and pickup after themselves at the meet.  Our custodial costs are one of our largest expenses each year due to the large cleanup job after each day.

Wrist-band collection will take place at the east doors, where we will process teams or individual athletes and distribute the wristbands.  Entrance to the facility for participants, coaches and spectators is at the middle doors at the east end of the parking lot.  All other doors will remain locked.

Please caution your athletes to avoid competition areas during warm-up and between competitions.  Athletes must report when they are called.  Please instruct your athletes to pay attention to the order of events and be ready to report when they are called, which will usually be one or two events before their scheduled event.  Athletes that do not have their name marked on the list after the final call will be scratched.  We have too many races to run with empty lanes.  Each event will be seeded after the last call, then the scratches will be processed.  Once an athlete reports, you must stay in the clerking area until your race.  While the fieldhouse is not the ideal spectator facility, the track surface is world-class.  We will have two sets of bleachers in addition to 200 chairs.  We also have 3 video cameras that will display the back-stretch, far curve, and homestretch to help display the races.  We will have a great meet! 

We are looking forward to another great meet! We typically have some of the top athletes in the intermountain area, which includes athletes from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado!

See you at meet!
