    SPIKES - Athletes may use spikes that are no larger than 7mm (1/4”) in length. High jumpers and javelin throwers may use a 9 mm (3/8”) or less spike. Spikes will be checked and the athlete must replace those not meeting the regulations.
    CHECK-IN - Coaches, please make sure you and your athletes are aware of the finalized event schedule (provided on the day of the meet). In addition, we will make every effort to remain on schedule but be aware of the flow of the meet as the schedule is only a tentative guideline (events may start before or after the time posted).
