coaches have verified and paid for meet entry. These will be posted each week on our leader board on the Illinois Top
Times website. The field size is pre-determined and is listed in the event table below.

be using lanes 1 and 2 in the 200M, 400M, and the 4 x 200M races because the tight curves. We feel that this
championship meet should give the athletes the greatest opportunity to perform at their best.

Only FAT Times achieved from January 1, 2015 Saturday, March 21st
, 2015 at midnight will be accepted for
qualifying mark. We will accept Hand Times for the 800, 1600, 3200, 4x400 and 4x800. You still have to send
meet information so we can verify the meet, athlete and time. All hand-times will have .24 seconds added to
them. We will NOT take hand-times for anything less than the 800M because of inconsistent accuracy.
Performances from AAU/USATF certified meets during that timeframe will be accepted.
B. Registration Process
Registration is going to be through Direct Athletics. There are two ways to get your team's results on the Top Times
Leaderboards.
1) For meets that use DirectAthletics for online entries, results flow automatically to the leaderboards when the meet host
uploads results to DirectAthletics.com. Coaches do not need to do anything to add these results to leaderboards and should
not submit results themselves for DirectAthletics meets.
2) For meets that do not use DirectAthletics.com for entries, coaches must manually submit performances via
DirectAthletics.com. To submit performances manually: Login to your coach account at DirectAthletics.com. Click the "IL Top
Times" tab. Click "Submit New Performances" and follow instructions. Note: For this year Manually submitted performance
will instantly appear on IL Top Times. ITT staff will go through and verify as well as delete if necessary.
How to Access Your Team's DirectAthletics.com Account:
If you already have a DirectAthletics account for your team, you should login at www.directathletics.com and use your existing
account. You will use the same account and roster you use to submit meet entries via DA.
If you know you have an account but have forgotten your username/password, you can click the Login Trouble link next to
the login box.
If you are new to DirectAthletics, go to www.directathletics.com and click "Sign Up". Even if your school has used
DirectAthletics in the past, use the Sign Up page to create a new account if the previous account holder has left.
Setting Up Your Roster and Submitting Results:
STEP 1Set Up Rosters Online
Before you can add performances to the Performance List, you must make sure that your online roster is complete and up-todate.
If you have used DA before, your roster may already be partially or fully set up online. However it is necessary to confirm
this before proceeding.
1. Login to your account at www.directathletics.com.
2. Click the TEAM tab. You will see a list of athletes that are already on your roster. Please review the roster for missing
athletes, misspelled names, or missing school years. NOTE: Your roster is for a single genderboys OR girls, not both. To
switch to the other gender, you can select the other team (gender) from the Team dropdown on the blue navigation bar to
the right of Track & Field
3. To delete or edit athletes, check the box to the left of each athlete(s) and then click the red Delete Selected link or the
dark blue Edit Selected link respectively.
4. To add athletes, click the green Add Athletes link.
5. Repeat separately for the other gender as needed. Before proceeding, all competing athletes should be listed on your roster
with the correct school year.

STEP 2Adding New Performances
It is the responsibility of each school to manually add top times/marks that are not already added by a meet director via a
meet results upload.
1. Click the Illinois Top Times tab. Click the Add New Performances link on the left. Select the event type (track, field, and
relay) and click Submit.
2. Fill out the form with the athlete, event, time/mark, date of performance, and meet name. When you are satisfied with the
form, click Submit.
3. Your performances will be submitted for review to an Illinois Top Times administrator. Until they are reviewed, the
performances will appear as Pending within your account and will NOT appear on the Top Times list. When an administrator
approves your submissions you will receive an email and see the performances on the public performance list
4. You can repeat steps 1-2 to add additional performances at any time.
5. Do not add performances for meets that used Direct Athletics for online entries. The meet host should upload results
directly from meet management software (MeetPro, Hy-Tek, etc.) to Direct Athletics.
C. Meet Declaration Process THIS IS A NEW PROCESS FOR 2015
Declaration will be the week of March 15th to March 22nd at 5:00pm. With this process there are less changes and
fewer possibilities for errors. IF you have a meet on March 21st or 22nd it is imperative that you use Direct
Athletics for online entries. The results will flow automatically to the leaderboards when the meet host uploads
results to DirectAthletics.com.
At any time during that week you will be able to declare your entries for the IL Top Times meet via your Direct Athletics
account. NOTE: If you declare, and then afterwards add new performances (or new performances are uploaded) you
MUST go back to the declaration page and declare new performances. Your athlete will not be automatically declared.
You MUST declare your athletes and relays that you wish to compete at the IL Top Times meet. Athletes/relays that are
not declared will be SCRATCHED and not considered for the meet.
You may declare only verifiable times/marks on the Illinois Top Times performance list.
Declaring entries is not a guarantee of acceptance into the meet. We will select the top 12 declared entries
in each event, unless noted. We will select the top 16 declared entries for the 200M, 400M, and the 4 x 200M
relay. We will select the top 15 declared entries in 1600M and 3200M runs, and the top 24 declared entries in the
60m Dash and 60m Hurdles. This list will be posted by March 24th at 5pm.
If you do not see your athlete's top performance when declaring, you must first add it to the IL Top Times
performance list and then return to the meet declaration/entry page. (See other instructions on how to add performances to the list)
You may update your declarations as often as you wish during the week of March 15th until the entry deadline
of March 22th at 5:00pm. After this deadline your declarations are FINAL.
During that week there will be a new Declared Leadership Board. It will be above the current Leadership board
on the Illinois Top Times website. (www.illinoistoptimes.com) Coaches, Athletes and Parents can visually see
who has been declared.

D. Illinois Top Times Championship Meet Entry Verification
The athletes who qualify for each event will be posted on our website on Tuesday, March 24th at 5pm. Those postings are
final. Illinois Top Times Uses Direct Athletics, and only results submitted to DirectAthletics.com appear on Top Times
Leaderboards
E. Payment Process
All teams will be required to pay for athletes to participate in the meet. Once again we are offering payment through
PayPal. PayPal is PCI DSS compliant for credit card processing. We are trying to discourage payment on the day of the
meet to keep registration efficient and timely. Payment on the day of the meet will result in an increase in the fee to
$125. From the time you are able to declare athletes until 5pm on March 26th, 2015, you will be able to pay online. If
you are confident that your athlete will qualify, we encourage you to pay early. If you are unsure about qualification,
you can pay upon posting of the verifications on March 24th. Because our window is so small, we have made it possible
to pay using a school credit card or a personal credit card and get a receipt for reimbursement. Please pay using PayPal,
if at all possible. If you are unable to pay online you can send a check. Checks need to be made out to Illinois Top Times.
Checks must be received by March 26th, 2015 at 5pm. Checks can be sent to Illinois Top Times, c/o Randy Anderson,
P.O. Box 638, Clinton, IL 61727. If we don't receive payment by March 26th at 5pm, you must pay on site, and the late
fee will apply. Illinois Top Times reserves the right to refuse alternative payment methods if insufficient cause is shown
to require such a payment. No refunds will be given from Illinois Top Times.
The payment site will be located at https://pay.illinoistoptimes.com, and this site will go live on March 8
th
. You will be
given a field to choose your school, and you must choose a school so that we know which school has paid when you
submit payment. Options will be available so a school can choose to make one payment for both boys and girls teams
together or separately. Coaches must not assume that the coach or AD paid for both teams. We will keep a running
track record of teams who have paid posted on the payment website so coaches know if their team's participation has
been paid for or not. If there are any questions or problems using PayPal, please contact Dan Andrews of Illinois Top
Times at sprenten@gmail.com or at 217-731-4670.
As always, we recommend you keep a copy of your receipt and bring it to the meet with you as proof of payment
verification. We are trying to streamline this process and appreciate your efforts to be proactive by making sure your
athletes are confirmed and the payment is made by the deadline. After the 26th, we will be working onsite and will not
be able to take phone calls or receive email. Please prepare, ask questions now.
