PARTICIPATION LIMITATIONS: By AHSAA rules, each participant is limited to a maximum of four (4) events. Schools may enter one relay team per relay track event.

1. All field events will be run as open pit/ring events. All entrants must report and complete their trials during the designated time window listed for the event. Three (3) trials will be allowed in all field events except for high jump and pole vault (see below).

2. Alabama has adopted the rubber-tipped javelin as an event; entrants may borrow implements if needed for competition. Steel-tipped javelins MAY NOT be used or brought to the competition!

3. Competition in the high jump and pole vault may be expedited by allowing each competitor six (6) total attempts to achieve their best mark. Competitors MUST clear an opening height in their first three (3) attempts in order to be eligible for their remaining trials. The bar may be raised or lowered at any time the competitor chooses. Please go over this modified procedure, which is utilized to limit the time of the competition, with your entrants prior to the meet.

4. Competition in all throwing events will be conducted with competitors using the 2 plus 1 method where they throw 2 times in succession when their turn comes around and then once afterwards. This will speed up the competition time considerably.

5. DO NOT ENTER COMPETITORS IN FIELD EVENTS WHO CAN NOT MEET THE MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR THE RESPECTIVE EVENT(S)!!!! Marks not meeting minimum standards will have the first legal attempt measured, but none thereafter not meeting the standard.
