If you enter an athlete at a time that does not meet the standard, that entry will not be accepted. If you enter an athlete in the High Jump or Pole Vault with a seed mark that is below opening height (or with no mark), they will not be accepted.

Every athlete will have their first attempt measured in the throws and jumps. After that, that athlete must meet the minimum standard in order to receive a mark. There will not be finals in any field events. We will be using a Plus 1 instead of finals. If an athlete meets the required minimum in their event, they will be allowed one additional attempt at the conclusion of their flight. The athletes best mark out of their four attempts will be used for placing. We are using this method to allow for athletes to complete their field events before the running events begin. I apologize if this in an inconvenience.
