Entry Fee: There is no entry fee for a regional meet. However, the only awards that are supplied by the WVSSAC are the two championship plaques. DCHS ordered medals and ribbons for this meet. We are asking that each school please send $25 per team ($25 for boys & $25 for girls, total of $50 for both) to cover the cost of these awards.) Over the years a lot of coaches have bemoaned the lack of awards at regional meets, so we are trying to do something about it.
1) Pole Vault verification must be turned in at the event.
2) Shot puts and discusses must be weighed and verified before the event.
3) Spikes can only be ¼ inch or shorter. Runners in spikes must stay off of the marked area of the football field.
4) Team tents should be put up in the visitor’s bleachers or in the top half of the home side bleachers from the press box toward the flagpole end of the stadium.
5) We will have a meal for the coaches and workers, during the break, in the board of education office.
6) In the sprints and hurdles 8 Athletes will qualify for the finals using a combination of place and time.
7) In the throws and long jump, the top 8, plus any ties for 8th, will qualify for the finals.
8) Coaches will be given a packet at the timing building when they arrive. This packet will include meet information, including a performance list.
9) Coaches are asked to pick up awards and a meet printout at the timing building at the conclusion of the meet.
Qualifying for the State Meet:
In all running events, the throws, and the long jump, the top 3 finishers from our region will automatically qualify for the state meet. 4 additional qualifiers from all around the state, in each of these events will also qualify that had the best performances from all the regions of those athletes that did not automatically qualify.
In the high jump and pole vault the top 4 finishers will automatically qualify along with anyone that meets a pre-determined standard that will be announced by the state games committee.
There is a 3rd way that a relay team or individual might qualify. If there are not 16 qualifiers in a particular event, the WVSSAC will go through the regional results to fill up the 16 slots. This happens when a regional or more than one regional has few or no entrants in a given event. This kind of thing sometimes happens in Class “A”, especially.
