Entries Info

ACCEPTED ENTRIES

Entries are done by Year of Birth (YOB). Athletes may only enter events in their own age category. Please see the BC Athletics Technical Specifications Manual for technical specifications by age. There is NO provision for athletes to compete in events below their age division. Where an event is not offered, they may enter in the next highest category if that category is noted for the age/gender in the BC Athletics Technical Specifications. Please also note the following restriction(s):

300m: The 300m is for 2005 and 2006 athletes only. Younger athletes will not be permitted to enter this event.

4 x 200m Relay: The 4 x 200m Relay is for 2005, 2006 and 2007 athletes only. Younger athletes will not be permitted to enter this event.

Triple Jump: The Triple Jump is for 2005 athletes only. Younger athletes will not be permitted to enter this event.

CHANGES

No changes will be permitted after the posted Regular Deadline.

LIMITED ENTRIES

Due to time constraints the number of entries to the 100m will be limited again this year. Maximum of 6 athletes per gender per age category per team will be allowed. Teams may enter as many relay teams as they like, however only their top 2 teams will count towards Team Awards Scoring.

SEEDING

There is no seeding in the sprint events. All lane assignments are done by lane draw. We will attempt to ensure all the athletes from one school do not run in the same heat. The volume of entries in each age category will ultimately determine our ability to do that. There is seeding in the distance events where more than one heat is necessary. Seed times should be from races run this season.

CONFLICTING EVENTS

Due to the volume of entries, Track events will not be delayed. In cases where track events and field events are in conflict (going at the same time), athletes are asked to check in at their field and track event. Then, return to your field event and continue competing. Have someone from your team or family monitor the progress of the races and then come back and get you in time for your race. After your race, return immediately to your field event. If you return before the end of a round and the next round has started, missed attempts from previous round(s) will not be made up. If the event is over, the event is over. Please plan accordingly.

COMPETITOR NUMBERS

Each athlete will have a competition number (bib number). Numbers must be worn on the front for all individual events. Relays will be run without competitor numbers. It is assumed that team members will be wearing team shirts/uniforms.
