MEET SCHEDULE: Will be posted week of the meet.
MEET PROGRAM: CLICK HERE for the meet program that will be posted the week of the meet. We will not provide teams with programs at the meet, so please copy this off for you and your team. If there are more than one heat, the final heat is the Championship Heat (for varsity divisions) or the fastest heat (for F/S divisions).
The meet will begin on Friday at 12:00 pm with the Varsity and frosh/soph throws competition and at 3:00 pm with the distance carnival. The girls' frosh/soph pole vault will start at 3:00 pm and the boys' frosh/soph pole vault will start at 5:30 pm. Saturday, the meet will start at 8:30 am at Redondo Union High School for the rest of the events and the varsity pole vault. If you have scratches the day of the meet, please let the athlete check in CLERKS know ASAP so we can let alternates know they can make a heat. Switching athletes is not allowed.
Please make sure your athletes report on time. We are running a tight schedule AND WE WILL RUN AHEAD OF SCHEDULE WHEN WE CAN! Athletes need to check in to the clerk no later than 45 minutes before their scheduled start time. The clerk of the course will be on the infield on Friday night and on the warm up field located to the NORTH of the track on Saturday.
Failure to check in 15 minutes before race/event time will forfeit your spot and allow an alternate to take that place.
ALTERNATES: We will only be taking alternates for lane events. Alternates should check in at athlete check in 45 minutes before event time. If there are any no-shows or scratches, alternates will be placed in those spots 15 minutes before the event time. Alternates will be taken according to athlete placement on the alternate list.
TIME SCHEDULE: The time schedule is approximate, but we do make every effort to stay on schedule, and we usually are right on schedule throughout the day. WE WILL RUN AHEAD OF THE POSTED TIMES WHENEVER WE CAN. Keep your eye on the races being run to tell your athletes whether or not we are ahead or behind of the posted time schedule. We will announce as often as possible where we are in the time schedule.
