COVID Protocols


We understand that many people have many different views on the

current situation. While attending our Invitational, we kindly ask all to

respect the protocols that have been put in place while attending our Track

& Field meet.


Areas for camps:

  • We

    will have an area in a practice football field for you and an area for

    your athletes to watch some action in the Visitor Bleachers. Please police

    your athletes and remind them of the importance of wearing masks and

    socially distancing. There are still a lot of eyes out there just waiting

    to jump on people/schools that do things wrong. I don't want that




  • I

    do not think too many spectators for a single athlete has been a huge

  • All

    spectators must be masked at all times.
  • Spectators

    should remain socially distanced from other spectators. We have brand new

    bleachers on the Home Stretch. I do not want to assign parents seats.

    Please just remind all your parents to spread out. There is plenty of

    • Running

      Events - Spectators should remain in the bleachers. No standing along

      the fence near the track.
    • Field

      Events - Please keep back a minimum of 12 feet from the field event area

      and avoid close contact with athletes.
  • Please

    respect gated and blocked areas and follow instructions on site. 
  • Restrooms

    will be available for spectators. Port-a-johns behind home bleachers.

    Concessions have some on the Southside of the building. Also some located

    behind the Visitor bleachers. 



  • Teams

    can warm up shortly after they arrive as a team if they'd like. Once

    warm-ups are over, please make sure your athletes do not enter the Track

    area until 30 minutes prior to their event. I'd like the infield as clear

    as possible throughout the meet. 
  • I

    will have two designated entry gates for athletes and two designated exit

    gates. They will be shown on the map.
