Track & Field Information
Uniforms: All uniforms must follow the NFHS Rules. The referee will warn every participant prior to the meet that they must compete in a legal uniform, and if a contestant competes in an illegal uniform, then that contestant is disqualified from that event. There are no team warnings or individual warnings after the meet begins. Officials should use preventative officiating as much as possible.
Practice: The first date for practice is the Monday, January 28th, 2019. Participants must have signed physicals and required forms on file at the school prior to their first practice. Each student-athlete must have a completed Athlete’s Health Record (comprised of a cleared pre-participation physical examination, emergency information, informed consent, acknowledgement of risk and authorization to participate signed by parent/guardian) and the Tennessee State Concussion & Sudden Cardiac Law “Information & Signature Form” before he or she can participate in a try-out, practice, or game.
Requirements: All coaches must have current CPR certification and complete the NFHS “Concussion in Sports” prior to coaching. All non-faculty and classified employees must complete the NFHS “Fundamentals of Coaching” and First Aid, Health, & Safety for Coaches” prior to coaching.

The 4 x 800 meter relay will be the first running event and the 3200 meter run will be the last. Both races will require a coach to time and the results will NOT count towards the team score in the regular season or at the SCIAA Championship. However, athletes will have the opportunity for an individual medal at the SCIAA Championship. The 2 events will NOT be recognized at the TMSAA Sectionals or any meet following.
Number of Entries:
Each team can enter 2 individuals per event. (EXCEPTION: During the SCIAA post-season, each team may enter 3 individuals per event.)
Number of relay teams per school is 1.
Each athlete may only participate in 3 total events (including running and field).
