Meet Information

Registration help:
At Polk County High, we are continuing to celebrate the holiday season with healthy competition, humor, and a focus on those who are less fortunate and struggling.

This year, we are again supporting the Nation in its hour of need. Too many people are unemployed and are in financial straits. We will again hold the Reindeer Games to raise both awareness and help those in need. The meet will be held on Wednesday, December 14, beginning at 4:00pm.

Times, heights, and distances will count for state qualifying; however, some added events are not ones that we normally contest at indoor meets. There will be a Throwers 4 x 100 (limited only to throwers). We may invent others!

The purpose of the Reindeer Games is to help provide food for the needy over the holiday season. An entry fee of one (1) can of food per athlete (or $2) will be collected. Spectators will also be charged 1 can of food for admission or $5. The food will be donated to the Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry. In past Reindeer Games, we have collected in excess of 2500 cans for distribution to those in need of assistance. This year, we will again recognize the school that provides the most cans with a special award.

Come and join in the Reindeer Games! Wear something to celebrate the season. The uniform rule will be somewhat relaxed. Wear antlers, a Santa hat, be an elf or be more creative. We do ask that you do not wear anything that could cause an injury or interference with another athlete.

We will use FAT; however, we will allow up to five (5) athletes per event. The deadline for entries is Sunday, December 11, 2016. Entries will be submitted on MileSplit.

This year, the winners of each event will receive a 2016 Reindeer Games shirt.
