Registration & Fees

To secure a spot in the meets, a school must submit the team registration form posted to the left via email to johnfarren@onfiya.org. While the number of participants need not be exact, please give your best estimate as it will be used for planning purposes.  Space is limited and spots will be reserved on a first come first serve basis.

The meets are open to students in Grades 3-8, competing at three levels:  Division 1 (7th & 8th grade), Division 2 (5th & 6th grade), & Division 3 (3rd & 4th grade). Students may run up a level, i.e. a 6th grader may run in Division 1, but may not under any circumstances run down a level. Students may also not under any circumstances compete in two levels in the same meet.  Violation of this rule will result in disqualification from the meet for the individual as well as possible penalties for the offending team as well.

Each athlete must pay $5 (payable by cash or check made out to FIYA) and submit the individual registration form posted to the left to participate. Payment and forms will be accepted on the day of the event only. Paid athletes will receive a wristband without which they will not be able to compete.

There will also be an admission fee of $5 for all spectators in 9th Grade and above.

 

Labels 

Each D-1 & D-2 athlete must have a label listing name, school, level, and event for each event in which they participate.  (For relays only the anchor needs a label.) While we will have labels available at the meet, it is highly recommended you fill out the labels for your team prior to the meet. A label template is posted to the left for your convenience.

 

Worksheets

Also posted to the left is an entry worksheet which again it is highly recommended you use for planning purposes. Use the entry worksheet to list which of your athletes will compete in what events.  While it is not an official document and can be changed as you see fit, it will help you keep your team organized which in turn will help the meet run smoothly.

 

Volunteers

Each participating school will be required to provide a volunteer to help with the meet.  All volunteers must be 18 years old or older and while no track knowledge is required, it is helpful.  Volunteers should plan on arriving 30 minutes prior to the start of the meet so they can be assigned a role and prepped for the day.
