SANCTIONING: The Kentucky High School Invitational is sanctioned by USA Track & Field (USATF) and hosted by the Kentucky Milers’ Club, a USATF club. USATF SANCTION # 19-41-001
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING USATF SANCTIONING:
USATF Sanctioning requires ALL competing athletes and their parent or legal guardian sign the USATF Liability Waiver. See page 4 of this meet information. Athletes, parents or coaches should print the Liability Waiver page and bring signed waivers to ATHLETE CHECK-IN ON FEBRUARY 16. Any participant that does not submit a signed waiver will not be issued an athletes’ credential, will not be allowed to compete and entry fees will not be refunded. Athletes 18 years old do not need a parent’s signature on the waiver.
ENTRIES: Entry consideration into the Kentucky Invitational is open to any high school athlete (9th-12th grade) regardless of state of residence. Depending on your state’s high school athletic association’s rules, athletes may compete as members of their high school team, a track club or as unattached competitors. Individual membership in USATF is not required. The Kentucky Invitational is a quality competition with selective entries based on verifiable individual performances in competition. Entry performances will be accepted from the 2019 indoor and the 2018 indoor and outdoor seasons. Relay marks should be 2019 indoor performances, or the sum of the personal best times of the four competing athletes. All athletes meeting the entry standard are automatically accepted. Entries not meeting the entry standard may be submitted, and will be accepted on a space available basis from the descending order list of entries. To assist with entry decisions, all entry list with entry performances will be available to review on the ASPi entry site. We will hold very closely to the entry limitations listed on the Schedule of Events and Entry Standards page. Originally, we refunded entry fees of athletes not accepted into the meet, but too many people ignored the entry standards and the maximum competitor numbers and refunding all those fees created an administrative nightmare. Therefore, we will not refund entry fees for athletes not accepted into the meet. Final entry lists will be emailed to all registered athletes and coaches on Wednesday, February 13
HOW TO ENTER: All entry performances with date and location of performance and entry fees must be submitted and DECLARED through ASPi Meetz by 6:00 pm eastern time on Tuesday, February 12.
Entry declaration deadline will be at 6:00 pm eastern time on Tuesday February 12
IMPORTANT: To ensure the validity of entry performances, YOU MUST enter your athletes with accurate, verifiable performances. Additionally, the Kentucky Invitational "Challenge Rule" will be available. If a coach or parent has reason to believe an athlete has been entered with an inaccurate performance, the coach or parent may challenge that performance by contacting Don Weber at email@example.com. If the performance in question cannot be verified, the athlete will be re-seeded or rejected. If accepted athletes scratch, other athletes will move up the list to fill all events with the appropriate number of competitors. Enter field event marks in feet and inches.
ENTRY FEES: Entry fees SHOULD be paid on line through ASPi Meetz, our on-line entry service. Entry fees are fifteen dollars ($15) per event in individual events, plus forty dollars ($40) for a relay team. If you cannot pay your entry fee through ASPi Meetz, you ABSOLUTELY MUST have your entry fee check in our possession by noon on Tuesday, February 12.

ENTRY DECLARATION: Please do not click the DECLARE ENTRIES button on the ASPi entry site until you KNOW all of your entries are accurate and available to compete.

2019 Kentucky HS T&F Invitational
NCAA’s Entry Regulations
The Kentucky HS Invitational Track Meet is a selective entry competition. We limit entries based on predetermined field sizes and legitimate performances previously achieved in official competition.
Selective entry or limited entry high school competitions hosted by NCAA institutions must follow NCAA rules. The NCAA mandates the selection of entries for limited entry events be determined solely by the established numerical entry limits and a descending order of legitimate past performances by athletes entered under the established entry procedures (i.e.) on-time entries, on-time entry fee payment and the other established entry policies.
Since the NCAA considers every high school athlete a college prospect regardless of class or ability, NCAA rules applies to every entrant along with their coach/parent. To avoid NCAA infractions of possible favoritism toward an athlete, coach or parent, as meet managers we cannot accept entries that do not adhere to the established entry policies. In essence, we determine the number of entries in each event (see schedule of events) and the athletes self-select themselves with their previous performances in legitimate competitions. Additionally, the coach or parent must follow the established entry procedures. Accepting fraudulent entry performances, training performances, coaches’ projected performance, or allowing any other special consideration of established entry policy would be in violation of NCAA rules.
Please do not ask us to compromise the established entry process, we cannot make exceptions.
If we have scratches in any event, we will attempt to fill the fields by going to our descending order list of properly entered alternates.
