Top 2 Auto From Region and top 8 times fora total of 16 athletes in each event All events straight finals run slowest to fastest Field events get 4 attempts Each Class on their own day (no set dates yet) ****Interesting Twist*** District Meet formats will be decided by district member schools. District entry limitations have been implemented: Limit of 3 entries per individual event. A fourth entry in individual events is permitted if all four contestants have established a mark equal to or better than the two-year rolling average mark for 8th place in the region round across all regions within that event and classification. Outlier marks will not be included in the average (e.g. an instance where an athlete pulled up with an injury and the mark was non-competitive). For running events, only FAT marks will be accepted for maximum entry. Qualifying marks may be found on the next page. Advancement is unchanged for district to region. ************** Still no location

And a very compact schedule which makes it a challenge for multi event distance athletes. No real recovery.

@EdwardsMom05 I hate to be that guy and I am a distance Coach too, but when I ran in the 90s it was this same way. 1 day meet per class for state finals. Have to choose events based on best shot and rest. I do not mind it as it gives others a shot at a title instead of the 1 fastest kid taking every race sprints and distance

@raycer131 Yes, very true. I remember those days. In these crazy times, will accept what they have to offer :) Just hope they consider spreading it out over more than 3.25 hours from start of 100M to 4x400.

The real issue is if you have someone who could score at Districts and help you win a title locally which is some team's season Goal, the 3 entries will limit them in their strength events. Choosing an entry time for District 4th athlete based on the 8th place at Regional makes no sense. Make it 8th place average of the District meets so that those who could score still can. It will most likely not affect the qualifiers for Regional.

Regarding the qualifications for a possible 4th entry into a district event, it says "only FAT marks will be accepted for maximum entry," but does that include marks from the 2020 season?

@raycer131 2 auto and 8 at large is absurd. 1 bad weather day at someone’s region would spoil the whole thing. as far as the distance events, north florida at night could be 10-20degrees cooler than south florida. how can it be anything other than top 3 auto + next 4 fastest. any more than 4 time qualifiers turns the regional into a glorified time trial.

Here we go again...(insert hand over face emoji)...why does it seem T&F in FL keeps getting weirder and weirder? I can only think of 1 reason. I mean, "A fourth entry in individual events is permitted if all four contestants have established a mark equal to or better than the two-year rolling average mark for 8th place in the region round across all regions within that event and classification"....I can't stop laughing. Who the hell is figuring that out?!? AND....so, some events can have more athletes competing than others, meaning some schools will have more athletes competing than others?!? Talk about unfair advantage to win a District title......

@bonniefleming correct... giving them an advantage... Should just be 4 entries... the districts are small enough that it will not be that bad (for social distancing) and doesn't change the advancement to Regionals at all

It just needs to be 4 qualifiers per region. You can add more through qualifiers but with wind being able to play such a huge role... I know there are tougher regions for different events. Just imagine the other way things could go, You could have that loaded 100m race at regionals but it goes against a strong head wind and the 10.6 kid only runs 11.1 for 3rd place and gets left home.

@bonniefleming Might as well just skip District & Region competitions and just send the top 8 in each event as ranked by the Fl milesplit. ....Not just "who is figuring it out", but why is it being agreed to? Here are a few other restrictions "they" should consider: 1) Anyone with hair past their earlobes is out 2) If the District meet is held on a Tuesday, then anyone with green eyes automatically advances. 3) Relay teams will be comprised of 3 members. If you want a 4th member, then he/she must have a split time faster than the 4 year rolling split time of the 2nd place State team in the same relay, but the other even/odd classification. 4) Carrots will now be used as batons (much better for the eyes) 5) Jumpers must take-off, off of their left foot when a tail wind exists and their right foot when a head wind exists. 6) Any team having an odd number of athletes is allowed 1 auto qualifier in an event of their choosing 7) Any team having more than half the number of athletes of another team will only score half the points allotted for each place.
