Parking: Parking will be on the streets surrounding campus and in the staff lot on the corner of El Monte and Duarte (you can walk through campus from there but should walk to Campus Drive and then down to the stadium). The meet director requests we do not park in the lot next to the performance arts center as there are performances occurring on Saturday (there will be students stopping people from parking there who are not attending the musical). Parking is also available in the parking lot at The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints located at 150 W Duarte Rd, Arcadia, CA 91007.

Entrance to the stadium will be through the Northwest Stadium Entrance (On Campus Drive nearer to the center of school. There will be one gate for teams and another for spectators.

Staging: Athletes will be admitted only through the athlete’s check in gate. Athletes must be wearing their uniform, and have their spikes ready to be checked before they will be admitted. Warm up areas are on the grass area to the west of the tennis courts and on the outfield of the softball field. Athletes are not allowed to warm up on the infield of the track until they are admitted there after check-in to their event. If running outside of campus, wear your bib for re-entry.

Clerk of the Course: Athletes will check in 10 minutes before the posted time for their event. The clerk of the course will be located on the D Ring on the west end of the field. Athletes will get two hip numbers. One will be worn on the left hip and the other on the upper left chest area. Once an athlete has checked in, they should remain on the field (using the infield for strides, shakeouts, etc.) They will be called to the rally point on the back side of the timing tent three minutes before their race for final instructions.

Spikes: 3/16” pyramid spikes only. Spikes will be checked at the athlete entrance.

Awards: Medals are awarded to the top six finishers in all non-invitational sections and to the top eight finishers in all invitational sections.
