SECTION V WINTER TRACK & FIELD
This packet contains Section V Championship information. Please read this information carefully. Entries received not using the proper format may be rejected.
All individuals are eligible according to NYSPHSAA rules, Section V rules, and the meet standards. The state rule for Sectional and State competition is that an athlete must have competed in SIX meets. If your athlete does not meet this requirement, he/she must apply for an hardship entry. A letter explaining the hardship must be submitted, including the number of meets the athlete has competed in, and explaining why the athlete did not compete in the minimum number of meets. If it is a medical reason, documentation will help.
MEET STANDARDS: These must have been met during the current season. There are two kinds of qualifying standards. An athlete who has obtained an automatic qualifying standard in an event will be guaranteed a place in that event, if he/she decides to do it. A provisional qualifier may be entered into the meet, and may compete if there is room in the event. See the accompanying sheet for qualifying standards.
In addition, each school is allowed one boy and one girl wildcard. A wildcard is an athlete who has not made the standard in an individual event, and you want to see this athlete compete. A wildcard entry will NOT displace a automatic or provisional qualifier, and will not add athletes to an event beyond the maximum number. The wildcard is allowed one individual event, and the athlete must have competed in that event during the season, and meet all other requirements.
HOW TO ENTER: (click for entry form) 2004 entry will consist of Excel on-line entry forms and hardcopy entry form signed by Coach, Athletic Dir / Principal as in past years.
All entries must be on the entry sheet provided, and on a 3 x 5 index card. Class A schools use White cards, Class B schools use Blue cards, and Class C schools will use Red or Pink cards. Any other size card will be rejected.
An athlete needs to have done the event once to be entered, and must have met the qualifying standard.
An athlete should have each event he/she intends to compete in marked on the entry sheet. This means INDIVIDUAL and RELAY teams. The exact relay is required. (You may list up to six names per relay)
