Relay Rules:
A relay team shall consist of four members. Qualification of a relay team entitles the club represented by that team to enter a team in the same event at the next higher level of competition. (This shall apply to both the Youth Athletics and Junior Olympic Championship.) The composition of the team need not be the same throughout the rounds or various levels of competition. To become a relay team member, an athlete must have been a member on that club when the roster was downloaded from the USATF database at the first level of competition. No alterations may be made after it has been submitted at this level.
  1. To enter a relay, a club must enter a minimum of four and a maximum of six athletes.
  2. All competitors listed on the official roster are eligible to compete if they are entered in the meet in individual events or other relays.
  3. The composition of the team will be determined by the primary entrants of the club. Changes to the composition of a relay may be made prior to the start of the event by submitting the appropriate change form to the Clerk of the Course no later than one hour prior to the scheduled check­in time for the event. The Clerk will validate the number of events in which the athlete is competing. Only athletes listed on the official roster of the club, who are entered in the meet, are eligible to run.
  4. An athlete may drop an event to compete on a relay team as long as he/she has not competed in any round of that event. This should be noted in the proper space on the change form. The Clerk shall make the appropriate change on the competition number..
  5. Violation of the above rules shall be reason for disqualification.
** Entry of an athlete into an event will be counted as participation in an event unless a “CHANGE FORM” is submitted to the designated “CHANGE CLERK” in the clerking area at least one hour before the scheduled check­in time. The “CHANGE FORM” will be a multi­part form that is signed, dated, and time stamped by the clerk. One copy will be filed by the clerk, one copy will go to the coach submitting the change, and one copy will be forwarded to press box for updating the meet database. Please be aware that the coach retains responsibility to make sure the athletes have the necessary “CHANGE FORMS” submitted prior to competition.
