TRACK ATTACK 2022

Information Package

Meet Schedule

UPDATED January 10:

With the latest updates to the Provincial Health Orders, we will not be able to host the January 11th or January 26th Track Attack meets and have cautiously postponed the February 2nd meet.

Under the current restrictions the University of Manitoba will not be hosting events which have more than two teams in the same space at the same time, regardless of team or individual participation in the actual event.

We are working to find an alternative date for the February 2nd meet later in February or March. Updates on restrictions and meet dates will be sent out as they become available. We are working to make sure that we are able to host Track Attack safely this year.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!

Registration

Due to capacity limits at the James Daly Fieldhouse, we will be limiting the total number of participants per meet to 300.

  • The total number of meets has increased from 4 to 6.
  • Schools will be able to sign-up for either meet package 1 or 2
  • Small schools will be allowed to bring a maximum of 14 athletes per meet
  • Large Schools will be allowed to bring a maximum of 30 athletes per meet
  • Schools can bring different athletes to each meet.

Registration will be done through Trackie Reg and schools will sign up for either meet package 1 or 2. There will be a preliminary limit of 10 teams per meet package. After the December 1st deadline, we will re-evaluate how many approximate athletes will be attending and begin adding teams on the waitlist and then schools interested in attending a single meet.

Meet Information

Each school is responsible to provide volunteers to assist in running these meets. For every 10 athletes, the school must provide one volunteer. Schools will be contracted with their job allocation along with instructions and officiating rules prior to the meet. Volunteers must be available the entire time and should be at least 15 years of age.

Schools are asked to bring their own basic medical kits but please note we WILL have medical staff onsite.

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.

Para-Athletics

Athletics Manitoba prides itself on being an inclusive sport, with competitive opportunities for all participants. If you have students who require adapted equipment or accommodations to participate, please let us know. We would like to support your ability to integrate these students into your track and field programs. If your school requires additional funding in order to support an existing or developing Para Athletics program, please consider applying for the Athletics Manitoba Para-Athletics Development Grant.

In accordance with public health restrictions, proof of COVID-19 vaccination status and government-issued identification is required at the entry of all UM sport and recreation facilities for:

  • All participants in recreational/sport programs aged 18 and older (verification of age may be requested).
