BYU Indoor Meet

Registration: I sent home registration forms for the BYU meet at practice today.  They want online registration, so we had to adapt.  The papers I sent home include their liability waiver as well as the other information they want.  Those will need to be turned in by Thursday to get in the meet.

Admission: BYU is charging all spectators $6 admission.

Parking and Directions: Parking is available in the lot NW of the Smith Field House, adjacent to the indoor practice facility.  You can also get there via University Parkway.

Check in: I should be there to pick up the wrist bands that all competitors must have to compete.  As soon as you get to the Field House, let me know you are there, so I can get your wrist bands to you to get you in to the track facility.

Indoor Track Camp

The district has made a change in how camps and clinics are run.  Instead of filling out paper forms and paying in the office, that process is now done online.  The link for the camp is here. The money for the camp will go to pay for the indoor singlet and meet fees as it has done for the last several years. 

We will not have transportation to meets, so an assumption of risk form will have to be completed for each athlete before they compete in a meet.

Athletes interested in competing at Simplot Games will need to join USATF as a junior member before they register.  This cost is not covered as part of the camp fee.
