TRACK & FIELD REGISTRATION INFORMATION  - Please Read

In order to ensure that your school's track team is familiar with how FIYA conducts its track meets, please make sure that your track coaches carefully read the information on our track page. There are some changes to our upcoming track season so it is important that track coaches read all the information. This serves as a checklist of sorts. 

 

1.  Please read the dates above for our 2019 season along with our "Track & Field FAQ and Important Information" highlighted in blue at the bottom of this page. 

 

2.  Under "Track and Field Links" to the right of this page (FIYA Track), print out the two documents:  (a) "Order of Track Events and General Rules for 2018 FIYA Track & Field Season" and (b) Specific Rules for FIYA Field Events:  Shot Put, Long Jump & Turbo Javelin".  Prior to registering for a FIYA track & field meet, please read through these two documents.

 

3.  Now that you have completed steps 1 and 2 above, you are ready to actually register for each FIYA track meet that your school team desires to participate.  Track registration for the 2019 season is being handled through Athletic.net.  Assuming your school does not already have an account with Athletic.Net, the FIYA track registration process becomes a two part process:  The first part is to create a free account and the second part (after you receive an email and confirm activation) is to actually register for each FIYA track meet your school desire to participate.

 

 

A.  CREATE A FREE ATHLETIC.NET ACCOUNT

  • Go to www.athletic.net
  • Click "Create Free Account"
  • Complete information and click "Next Step"
  • Click "Coach/Event Director"
  • Click "Find Team" and a Find-Your-Team pop up box should appear.  In the pop up box, do the following:  Select "Track and Field, select "Middle School" and select "California" and then type in your school name.  Assuming that your school has never created an account before, you should then be able to click "Add Your Team".
  • (This step is somewhat repetitive) - For Select Team Type - click Middle School; For School Info - complete all boxes and for State/Region, be sure to select "CA:  Los Angeles"; For Select League, Division - nothing needs to be put here; For Contact Info - enter information along with password and phone and then Click Submit Request.  You should receive an email and then you activate your free membership.

 

B.  REGISTER FOR FIYA TRACK MEET(S)

  • Go to www.athletic.net
  • Upper right hand corner, click log in and enter log in information
  • Under "My Teams", you should see name of your school and below that an icon for your Track & Field Team Page.  Click the icon.
  • Click "Add a Meet"
  • Under "Find An Event", make sure the state is California and then click on the FIYA track meet date for which your team is interested:  March 31, April 7, April 26, May 4/5 (TBD) or May 10.
  • You can register your athletes for the FIYA meet(s).  Please note the closing deadline to register for each meet.  To register your athletes, it will require you to input the athlete information.
  • Payment for track meets can occur at the track meet by check.  Please note to offset the facility costs, we do charge a spectator admission of $5 per adult.  Please let your families know so they are prepared.

 

 

 


 

FIYA TRACK & FIELD GENERAL RULES

 TRACK & FIELD FAQ & IMPORTANT INFORMATION: 

a)  FIYA will be utilizing electronic timing at all five meets.  School teams cannot just show up on the day of the meet and participate.  That is, all teams must pre-register.

b)  In order to participate in any of the five meets, school representatives will need to register their teams online.  The registration for each meet will CLOSE about 24 hours prior to the date of the meet.  If an athlete is NOT pre registered, he/she CANNOT participate.  

c)  If a team or athlete shows up to any of the FIYA track meets and has not specifically registered online for any of those meets, he/she will NOT be allowed to participate.  

d)  Fees - there are two fees:  The athlete fee is $12.50 per athlete per meet for nonmember schools and $10 per athlete per meet for member schools.  (If your school has completed a membership fee on our registration page for $100 for the 2017-18 school year for $100 then your school is a member school.)  In addition, our track meets have an adult spectator fee of $5 per adult per meet.  An adult is anyone 18 years of age or over.  For the athletes, by registering them online, we will have a bib number for them.  You only pay for the bib numbers pre-registered.  This means that you cannot add bib numbers on the day of the meet and it means you cannot get refunds for unused bib numbers.

e)  NEW! Meet results are posted LIVE on athletic.live during and after the meet "unofficially". You can share this link with spectators and participants during the meet to see immediate scores and times. Following each meet, we will share those "unofficial" results to our Track & Field coaches who will then have 24 hours from when we post the results to raise concerns. Thereafter, it is passed the deadline and results will stand as they are. Upon reviewing the unofficial results, if a coach has any discrepancies, please email Executive Director John Mueller at johnmueller@onfiya.org

AWARDS & SCORING

  • For each individual FIYA Track & Field Meet, trophies will be given to the Top 3 school teams per meet for Division 1 Boys, Division 1 Girls, Division 2 Boys, Division 2 Girls.
    • For Division 3, there is no team scoring. Ribbons will be distributed in every D-3 event to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishers and the rest will receive participant ribbons.
    • For Division 1 and Division 2, Top 6 finishers in each event will score 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 & 1 points for their teams respectively.
      • Remember that an athlete may win their individual heat but not be in the overall Top 6 finishers.
      • Conversely, an athlete could finish in 2nd or below in his/her heat and still be a Top 6 finisher.
    • The Top 4 finishers in each Division 1 and Division 2 event will receive customized ribbons later in the season.
  • NEW! Starting with the 2019 FIYA Track & Field Season, we crown an official Girls Division 1 and Boys Division 1 Track and Field Champion upon the conclusion of the season. To qualify, a school must participate in at least 50% of the FIYA Track & Field meets during a season. Your team must finish in the top 5 team scores. This will be based on accumulating points at ANY FOUR of the FIVE FIYA track meets (or as otherwise determined based on the number of meets offered in that particular season). For D-1 Girls and D-1 Boys, your school's team will earn points if you finish in the Top 5 Team Scores of your Division at each meet as follows: 

5th Place - 1 point 

4th Place - 2 points 

3rd Place - 3 points 

2nd Place - 4 points 

1st Place - 5 points 

  • If there is a tie in team scores with multiple teams for a top five finish, we will add the point totals and divide by the number of tied teams.  By way of example, if two schools tie for 2nd and 3rd place, we add the points (4 + 3) and divide by 2 so each team will be awarded 3.5 points.  
  • There is a maximum number of track meets for which a school team can earn points during a track season. The maximum number is the total number of FIYA track & field meets offered in a season minus one. In other words, for the 2019 season, we are offering 5 track meets so a school team can earn points in its four best meets (we drop the lowest score if the school team competed in all 5 meets).
  • If there is a tie in accumulated points upon conclusion of the track season with multiple teams, the tiebreaker will be the team that competes in the MOST FIYA track and field meets in the season wins.  If the tiebreaker does not resolve the champion, there will be co-champions.
