Entering Indoor Competitions at the University of Washington
* All collegiate indoor meets at the University of Washington are open to ALL Division I athletes and teams. Other teams and individuals will only be accepted by special request to Meet Director Jess Riden (firstname.lastname@example.org), provided that they meet entry standards. Entry marks for ALL COMPETITIONS must be TFRRS marks from the 2013-15 seasons or verification of the mark must be provided during the entry process. Speculative marks may be submitted, but MUST be emailed to the Meet Director for approval prior to the entry deadline. More specific meet information, tentative time schedules, and entry standards will be posted at www.GoHuskies.com in October.
Field Selection ** NEW POLICY FOR 2015 **
* Due to the high volume of interest in our indoor schedule, we will be invoking strict “field size” restrictions (for ALL DIVISIONS) for each competition. Each meet info packet will include an anticipated field size (for each event), as well as a suggested entry standard. Because of this we anticipate accepting approximately 150 ENTRIES LESS (per meet) than previous years! We will accept all athletes (regardless of division) who have achieved the suggested standard in their respective event. If necessary, we will fill each field with the remaining entries (please note – priority will be given to DIVISION I ATHLETES). We WILL NOT accept ALL DIVISION I ATHLETES, as had been our previous policy.
Dual Meet v. Invitational Scoring
* ALL 2015 UW INDOOR COMPETITIONS WILL BE SCORED USING INVITATIONAL SCORING STANDARDS (10-8-6-4-3-2-1). If you would prefer to be included in DUAL MEET SCORING (5-3-1; 5-0) to satisfy NCAA competition requirements, please contact Jess Riden (email@example.com) NO LATER than the Wednesday prior to competition. Teams who have requested to participate in dual meet scoring will be listed in the “Last Minute Notes” email prior to each competition. ALL SCORING will be released on www.GoHuskies.com no later than the Tuesday following each competition. (NOTE – The UW High School Invitational, and UW Open Meet will be NON-SCORING.)
