Awards: 

We feel that awards need to be earned.  We also respect that you are here to compete, and it is not your fault there is no one for you to compete against.

Here is our policy on awards.

Awards will be given by event, classification, sex and age with direct competition. 

If you are the only one in your classification and age groups you will only receive 1 award for track and 1 award for field if you are competing in both at the meet. 

Events that have multiple competitors will be awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards. 

For example, we have 7 T54 U14 girls and we will award 1st 2nd and 3rd places.  We have 1 T45 U14.  They will not have any direct competition so they will receive 1 award for the meet.

Volunteer

To host an event for our athletes takes many volunteers.  If you or your group is interested you can sign up to help put on this event.  


We will need volunteers to work the check in desk, awards, definitely marshals to help clear the track and hand out water. In the field events we will need volunteers to help the officials with securing the field chairs, marking and measuring throws, setting up safety nets for the seated throws area, moving throwing equipment to the correct spots on the field, and in long jump helping measure jumps and raking the sand.


At the end of the event we need to clean up the area and load our equipment into trucks.


As you can see there is plenty to do.
