REGISTRATION

High Schools will register at the Athletic.net website and can go there directly or link to the registration page from our runmtsac.com event website.

NOTE: We do not treat the boys’ and girls’ teams from the same high school as two separate programs. Our expectation is that both teams from the same high school will register together. All related information sent out to schools – including accepted lists, confirmations and heat and lane assignments, will be sent to only the single email listed by your school at the time of registration.

DATES AND DEADLINES
  • Registration is now open on Athletic.net.
  • Registration closes on Friday, March 31 at 11:59pm PT
  • Accepted Entries posted on Tuesday, April 4

A list of all athletes accepted into this year’s Mt. SAC Relays and the events in which they have been accepted will be posted at runmtsac.com.

If an athlete is listed as “Accepted” that means that athlete will definitely be competing in the Mt. SAC Relays, either in the invitational or seeded race or field event section.

The coach will have 24 hours to “scratch” that athlete—if the coach does not scratch that athlete by the SCRATCH deadline, the credit card used at registration will be billed for that amount.

  • Scratch Deadline is Thursday, April 6 at 11:59pm PT

If you are going to scratch an “accepted” athlete or relay you will have until 11:59pm PT on April 6 to do so.

Your credit card will be charged the Registration fee for all “accepted” athletes that you have not scratched by this deadline.

  • FINAL CONFIRMATION: Saturday, April 8

We will post final accepted entries along with specific heat / section information on Saturday, April 8.

ENTRY MARKS

All marks submitted must have been achieved in 2023 and must be an official mark listed on Athletic.net. No manually entered marks into Athletic.net will be accepted.

MINIMUM ENTRY STANDARDS: While there are no minimum entry standards, be aware that there are alimited number of spaces available in each event. We will only be accepting the top athletes and relay teams. NOTE: This means that the act of registering an athlete online through Athletic.net DOES NOT mean that the athlete or relay team registered will be automatically accepted into the meet.

REGISTRATION FEES
  • Individuals: $25 per individual per event
  • Relay Teams: $60
  • Entry Fee Cap: $360 per gender or $720 both genders

You will be required to authorize a credit card at the time of registration to enter athletes into our meet. The credit card will only be charged on Thursday, April 6 for the athletes and relay teams ACCEPTED. Nothing will be charged to that credit card until our Scratch Deadline of April 6 has passed.

Please note that our registration process no longer allows a school or individual to pay their fees on meet day. Your team’s full entry fee will be charged to the credit card on April 6.

Athletic.net registration system can generate an online receipt for you if you need to submit for reimbursement from your school or District.

SCRATCHES

If you still must scratch an athlete AFTER the scratch deadline (April 6) has passed, please note your entry fee will not be refunded; however, to ensure that alternates can be notified in a timely that there will be a spot available for them, please do one of the following:

NOTE: Scratches may only be made by the official high school coach.

  • Phone the Mt. SAC Special Events office at (909) 274-4840. Give us the following information in person or leave a voice mail if we don’t pick up:
    • Athlete’s first and last name
    • Your school name
    • Event or events from which you are scratching
    • Your name and phone number so we can call and confirm the scratch.
    • Or you may email our High School Division Director, Tim O’Rourke at torourke@mtsac.edu

NOTE: Please enter “SCRATCH” in the subject heading of your email.

Provide the same information in your email that we asked for above. IMPORTANT: If you scratch an athlete or relay team AFTER our “Scratch Deadline” you will still be charged the full registration fee for those athletes and/or relay teams.

UPDATE OF ENTRIES

Official seed times on Athletic.net will continue to automatically update until the close of registration listed on Friday, March 31. After this date, the school’s coach, and only the school’s coach, may submit updated marks via email to our High School Division Director, Tim O’Rourke at torourke@mtsac.edu.

Please enter “UPDATE” in the subject heading of your email.

NOTE: This is only for updating existing entry marks. Do not send in late entries; they will not be considered.

ALTERNATES

Athletes who enter an individual event but are not accepted into the meet may be placed on an Alternates List in an order determined by our seeding committee. As scratches are made during the week or on meet day, those alternates from the Alternates List will be placed into the meet in the order they are listed.

Any alternate who is added into the meet prior to the scratch deadline will be charged a registration fee and that fee will be added to the team’s total fee and charged to the credit card used at registration.

The fields in the distance races and field events are purposely created with larger than expected fields—anticipating for the usual number of scratches that occur; therefore, there are no alternates in the distance races or field events at any time.

When Final Confirmations are first posted, there will be 10 alternates listed for each lane race. By the day before the meet, that list will be pared down to only five alternates for each lane race. No additional alternates will be added or accepted into the meet.

The only alternates admitted into the stadium will be the five alternates listed in each of the lane races.

PACKET PICK-UP

Team packets and entrance wristbands may be picked up at the box office located in the main stadium entrance (North end of stadium). Park in Lot F on the north side of Temple. Take the tunnel that runs beneath Temple and follow the signage. See: mtsac.edu/maps/athletic_facility_map.pdf

NOTE: We do not “hold” packets for individuals from the teams to pick up their credentials throughout the day. The first coach to arrive on scene at packet pick-up will receive the entire packet. It is up to you to coordinate any distribution of contents to your staff and athletes. No packets will be given to parents or athletes. No athletes will be admitted without an official school coach.

ENTRANCE PROCEDURE FOR ATHLETES

At Packet Pick-Up, you will be given a wrist band for every individual athlete that has been accepted into the meet. You will also be given four wristbands for each Relay Team accepted into our meet. We recognize that your Relay Team members may be running on more than one Relay or they may be in the meet as an individual as well as a Relay Team member. You will also receive one wristband for each alternate listed in a lane race. This means that you will end up with more athlete wrist bands than probably needed. Use these as you see fit, (team manager, trainer, etc.), but please understand that all athletes must have a wristband ON their wrist to enter the stadium. There will be no exceptions. Please plan accordingly.

ENTRANCE PROCEDURE FOR COACHES

Each school will receive coaches wristbands calculated upon the following formula:

  • One athlete = One (1) wristband
  • Two to five athletes = Two (2) wristbands
  • Six to 20 athletes = Five (5) wristbands
  • More than 20 athletes = Seven (7) wristbands

All coaches and / or support personnel with you must have a wristband ON their wrist to enter the stadium. This is a very generous policy and as such there will be no exceptions to this entrance requirement. Please plan accordingly.

NOTE: We do not treat the boys’ and girls’ teams from the same high school as two separate programs. The wristband numbers above are for both the boys’ and the girls’ teams.

EVENT CHECK IN
  • FIELD EVENT ATHLETES will check in with the official at your field event site 45 minutes prior to the start of your event. (Example: A 3:00pm High Jump start would report to the competition pit at 2:15pm. General warm-up for that athlete will take place outside of the competition venue.)
  • RUNNING EVENT ATHLETES need to be aware of the following steps:
    • They must check in at the CLERK OF THE COURSE and declare their intention to run at least 30 MINUTES prior to the start of your event. An athlete can declare earlier and a coach may go through our line and “declare” for their athlete.
    • The athlete must report back to the HIPPING area 15 minutes prior to the start of the event to receive their heat and lane assignment along with their hip number. ONLY the athlete can do this.
    • The athlete will stay in our hipping area and be brought to the start line as a group.
    • Make sure they are prepared and ready to go to the start line at this point.
    • The Clerk of the Course and the hipping area will be located behind our scoreboard at the south end of the track. Running Event athletes will be escorted onto the track via the gate at the south end of the track in the middle of the curve.

If an athlete or relay team fails to check in at the clerk of the course 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of their event, they will be scratched and an alternate will be placed in their spot.

CLERKING DETAILS OF WHICH TO BE AWARE

  • Athlete heat and lane change will occur if there are scratches.
  • Final heat and lane assignments will be given on meet day at the hipping area.
  • Depending on the number of sections run, please be aware there may still be some slight time changes to the schedule. Please check runmtsac.com for FINAL TIME SCHEDULE.
