At each facility:

  • Younger athletes (12 and under) will compete in the mornings,

  • Older athletes (13 and up) will compete in the afternoons/evenings. 

Please see the full schedule.

MEET LOCATIONS:

Beginning with the Summer of 2023 and Winter of 2024, athletes will compete inside of one of our satellite locations.

Upon the completion of construction of our permanent full indoor indoor track and field arena, meets will be held at each location with the breakdown as follows:

  • The Indoor Track & Field Events League hosts the Youth Division and High School Division athletes on alternating weekends.

  • Satellite locations will host events for the local communities which do not involve oval races.  

​​

 

Our meet schedule allows for events to flow more smoothly and quickly, as well as allowing athletes to know approximately what time each of their events will take place. 

 

By having this breakdown, traffic flow both in and out of the facilities will be easier maintained as well. Until both facilities are open, meet schedules will be divided into morning and afternoon sessions for each division inside of our location.
