Coaches who pick up and sign for the racing chips are responsible for their safe return. If a chip is lost or damaged, the coach or team representative who signed out the chips will be charged $20 per timing chip.

INDIVIDUALS
Individuals without a team affiliation will sign out chips singularly. There will be a $20 fee assessed for unreturned or damaged chips.

Additionally, Invitational Meets with 8 or more teams will be considered if a request is made to FLYRA prior to the meet and the results are posted on FLRunners.com. Some smaller meets may be considered in geographic areas where there are otherwise no other qualifying opportunities. Qualifying from a Basic Qualifying Meet will follow the formula: Top 25% of Finishing Teams, and Top 10% of Finishing Individuals qualify. Teams numbers will not be rounded up.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What if a club team (members are not from the same school)wins one of the TOP 5 qualifying spots in a Super qualifier? Top 5 school based teams will qualify for the MS State Championships.

Can a 5th grader compete in the Championship Division?Yes, they may as long as they have qualified thru a qualifing meet. They may qualify as part of a team or as an individual.
.
What if a middle school runner is in Top 7 on the high school varsity team and can't participate in the middle school division of a Super Qualifier or Basic Qualifier. Can his participation in the Varsity High school race count?
No it does not. 1) It is our position that athletes must qualify via the qualifying meets, and 2) because our State Meet conflicts with High School Districts, this is an either/or proposition for some kids..
