South View Track and Field presents The 2019 Tiger
Relays - Need-To-Know Info
Saturday, March 2, 2019, Reid Ross
Classical School, Fayetteville, NC
Welcome to the Tiger Relays! We hope you enjoy this "fun-oriented" meet. We started this meet several years ago in an effort to create an early season event where top athletes could compete with one another, but younger, inexperienced kids could get a taste of that "invitational" atmosphere. It also provides coaches with an opportunity to teach. Feel free to walk on the infield and encourage and teach your kids. Do not show them video,
pictures, or in any way interfere or violate any rules. But use this meet for what it is designed to do: teach kids to enjoy and learn the meet process and compete in front a crowd. Please make sure you read the following information. If you have any questions, please see me or any South View staff.
Spectator Parking: Spectator and coaches vehicles will be allowed to park in the back parking lot off Lynn Street. If you are parking there, turn right onto Lynn Ave. off of Ramsey Street (if coming from the south). Lynn Ave. is on the same side of Ramsey Street that Reid Ross Classical School is on. Go about a quarter mile down. Turn left when you see a small road entrance to the track and athletic fields of Tokay Park/Reid Ross Classical School. Overflow parking will be sent to the Tokay Recreation Center lot. The SVHS ROTC and/or Key Club will be helping with parking.
Overflow parking may be directed to the Tokay Recreation Center behind the soccer fields east of the stadium.
Buses will park in the bus parking lot beside Reid Ross. SV ROTC and/or Key Club will help with parking.
Pay-To-Play: Please bring your meet payment with you. If you do not pay, you cannot compete. This is absolute. Please do not argue with the nice ladies at the table. Find me.
Scratches: We will have tables near the finish tent for you to come make your scratches by 9:00 AM.
No Add-Ins: You may not add an athlete to an individual event. You are free to move athletes in the relays all you want, as long as you respect the athlete limit of four events. FRIENDS DON'T ASK FRIENDS TO DO WRITE-INS. JUST SAY NO TO WRITE-INS... REALLY. DON'T DO IT.

There will be THREE attempts in field events. The first measurable attempt will be recorded. Then, a standard must be met for measurement. These marks are on the next page.
SCORING: We will be scoring 8 places. Every contestant can score, including relay B Teams, C-Teams, etc.
UNIFORMS: WWe know many teams are still ordering uniforms. So, we will relax the uniform code. But we ask that A-Team Relays have matching uniforms in the 4x1, 4x2, 4x4, 4x8. Not required for B or C squads, the thrower relays and medley relays.
SPORTSMANSHIP & KNOWING THE RULES: Please remind your athletes about sportsmanship and bringing electronics on the infield and track.
DO NOT BOTHER THE TIMERS!!! They have enough to do under the tent. See Coach Autry if you have a question.
If you are helping with a field event, please bring your own measuring tapes, implements, etc.
Meet Officials from Other Schools: We have already waived your team's entry, but you will get a ticket to get a free snack and drink at some point during the meet. We will discuss this and hand-out the tickets at The Meet Officials Meeting at 9:00 AM at the finish tent. If you are assisting with the meet, please be on time for this meeting.
Athletic Trainer: We will have a trainer on-site (map included in packet on day of race day). The trainer is there for injuries. He and his staff will have ice, bags, first aid kit, etc. He is not there to tape athletes "prior" to events. All teams need to bring their own coolers to make sure we keep all the kids hydrated throughout the day.
Awards: Athletes will pick up their medals at a tent near the check-in tent. It is the responsibility of the athlete to claim their award. We will not mail any that are not picked up. We have plaques for the top three men's and women's teams. These will be presented at the conclusion of the meet.
