Since the MVP League VIBE FEST Chicagoland Invitational Sections is a selective entry section rather than an all-comers section, All events have a cap on the number of participants that will be accepted for the invitational seeded heats as noted in the schedule. All entries must be made with a verifiable entry mark. All marks will be checked for accuracy. If you do not submit a verifiable or submit a bogus mark your entry will be dropped from consideration for the invitational sections and moved to the unseeded portion of the competition . All accepted entries will be posted on the Meet Schedule table below no later than 2/16/22 at 8:00 PM EST.

In submitting marks for invitational sections you may use:

  • 2022 Indoor performances

    2021 Outdoor performances

    2021 Indoor Performances

All submitted marks will be accepted for unseeded sections

Invitational High School entrants will be selected from all athletic.net entries for athletes representing their High School Teams. All USATF high school aged invitational events will be selected from entries on on athletic.net listed as USATF however entries that do not make the cut off will be automatically moved to Sundays Event. We will have a limited number of club events on Friday and Saturday and those events will have limited field sizes. All Olympic Development entries will be done on Direct Athletics.

Remember these marks must be able to be found on Athletic.net or Mileplit in order to be accepted and verified. If you are selected for a Club Invitational event a meet administrator will contact you if they are unable to verify the mark. If you are in the selection pool with an unverifiable mark you will maintain that mark in the unseeded section on Sunday. Please include notes if you put in a time that is not verified on Athletic.net. A link to the online results for that performance. 2021 indoor 60m times may be used and converted for consideration in entering the 100m. Likewise with 55h / 60h times for the 100/110H

Seeding Tiebreakers for Invitational Events

Preference will be given to the athlete with the most recent top performing mark. *Note indoor vs outdoor performances will be scored accordingly. Example in the girls 400 54.5 seconds indoor is worth 1065 points however the same mark outdoor is worth 1031 points. In a scenario as such lane preferences will be given to the athlete with the indoor mark. If you wish to determine what mark would be best you can find the scoring table at the following link.
