Each school must participate in the running of the meet; for every 10 athletes, the school must provide one volunteer. Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age. Jobs will be assigned prior to the first event and the same job will be done at each of the 4 meets (e.g. Long jump officiating, timing, etc.). A list of specific officiating rules will be sent in advance.
Due to a time frame restriction, we will have to limit the number of schools accepted. Those schools opting for participation in the full series will get preference. Parking passes are currently unavailable at the University of Manitoba. Athletics Manitoba will keep you posted of any changes closer to the time of the meet.
Schools are asked to bring their own medical kits as there are no medical personnel at these events.
We must unfortunately remind everyone that student supervision is the responsibility of the schools. We acknowledge the difficulties involved with an event of this type but damages to University property will not be tolerated.
Code of conduct warnings will be issued to schools if necessary and multiple incidents may result in a penalty fee or a removal from future events.
