For events like the Swedish Relay, the Steeplechase and the Sprint Hurdle Relay, how do we qualify if we have never run them in a meet?

@veb26 For relays that the athletes have never run - upon registration, the coach adds comments. Since the Swedish Medley is 100, 200, 300, 400, include your athletes' PRs for each of those events (or perhaps the 200/400 PRs for your 300m leg if he/she hasn't ever run an open 300m). I think including other relay times like the 4x200m or SMR that those athletes have run would help too as the volumes are similar in those relays.

@ParkviewCoachDXC Yes, composite relay entry is the way to go with a relay you haven't run in the current season (or indoors but it must be the same four kids). One amendment to Coach's comments: it is current season bests only for composites, not PRs. For the steeplechase you MUST have a qualifying 2000 or 3000 meter steeple time from the current season. Coach, thanks again for coming to NBNO. Your kids are terrific!
