start time 12pm
school will open at 11am (no earlier) to admit and temp check all athletes/coaches/officials.†
this will be the ONLY way to access the track
school address is 98 Cherry Ln, Hicksville, however, the main entrance is on NEWBRIDGE RD (at the intersection of Stewart Ave & Newbridge Rd)
PARKING - in the main lot along Newbridge Rd
after the temp check (done by a supervisor at HT) everyone will walk through the school to the track (there will be supervisors there to direct everyone)
NO ONE IS ALLOWED IN THE SCHOOL DURING THE MEET FOR ANY REASON
Athletes may utilize the track (prior to the start of the meet, the turf practice field, and the baseball field for warm ups.† That will provide adequate space for everyone to practice social distancing while they warm up and stretch.
We will have sanitizing stations set up by the shot put circle, HJ area, and on the infield.†
We ask that coaches make sure their athletes donít linger after their races as to help keep the number of people on the athletic fields to a minimum.
RESTROOMS - located along the side of the building, next to the baseball batting cage, there is a mens & womenís rest room with 2 stalls each.†
NO SPECTATORS- parents, and athletes who are done competing, may watch from OUTSIDE the fences along Cherry Ln.† (shot put is on newbridge rd, so that would be a good spot for the throws parents to watch their child).
TRAINER - we will have an athletic trainer on site for the meet
ROSTER - please send me a roster/list of who is expected to be at the meet.† If you can break it down by grade that would be great!
Bring own batons for relays!
Order of Events:
12:00 - Freshmen & Sophomores
With field events (shot, LJ, HJ) beginning at noon
1:30 - Juniors & Seniors
With field events (shot, LJ, HJ) beginning at 1:30
3:00 - Overflow athletes
3000 (not expecting there to be any overflow so plan for 300m kids to run at 3pm just in case)
With field events (shot, LJ, HJ) beginning at 3:00
Personally, Iím telling my athletes to arrive 45-60 min prior to their section stat time for the 3k, 300 girls, & field event girls, and 15 min prior the section start time for the 600 & relay girls).† I think that may be a little long for a warm up, but iíd rather them there a little early than have to rush through a warm up in the cold and hit the track and risk injury, plus we have the space for the athletes to socially distance.† With this being our first meet, it is tough to really estimate a time table much more accurately.
Hopefully I covered everything and it all goes smoothy so we can possibly expand events for future meets.
