Saturday Field Flight Sheets
The Huntsville Big Cat Invitational is changing this year. I am going to hold it over two days, Friday and Saturday. I will most likely be taking around the first 20-25 teams to enter, so if you are interested, enter your team in the meet ASAP so I know you plan to come and to reserve your spot. **UPDATE - we have reached team capacity.
Here are the GoFan ticket purchase links:
**We will accept cash at the gate as well, but you must wear a facial covering when not able to safely distance from those not in your household, i.e upon entry at the admissions gate.
Friday will be a day for athletes outside of your top three and/or those who will not be competing at the section level. It is also a day for B & C team relays to allow for those outside your top 3-4 one last relay team experience. I will not limit the amount of athletes a team can enter on Friday in every individual running event but some will be limited & the meet will have an overall cap based on health guidelines related to capacity of the facility, so with this you should expect that in the distance races heats will be large on Friday. We are also not doing finals in field events; 3 attempts period.
*If you have a small team, I don't mind if you enter the same athletes on Friday and Saturday, but they should not be doing their primary events on Friday/the same events, both days. Max number of events is still 4 per level.
Saturday is meant to be for your Varsity and will be limited to three per individual event, and one relay team. Saturday is meant to be athletes who will be competing at sectionals looking to move on to state - i.e a "pre-sectionals". Please be cognizant of this while you do your entries. The events in registration titled varsity are for your Saturday competitors.
Team awards will be based on Saturday performances only. Medals to the top three per event with podium photo ops will occur for both days. For the 4x800 on Saturday, we will run 1 heat per gender to be able to stick to our schedule. We will use a waterfall start if necessary. If your relay will not make the cut-off and you want to run it, please feel free to run it on Friday. Lastly, you will not enter the same athletes on Friday that you do on Saturday. The same events are being offered both days.
