SANCTIONING: The Kentucky High School Invitational is sanctioned by USA Track & Field (USATF) and hosted by the Kentucky Milers’ Club, a USATF club. Sanction # 22-41-003

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 MUST print the Liability Waiver page and bring signed waivers to ATHLETE / TEAM CHECK-IN TABLE ON FEBRUARY 19. 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 their 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 pervious, verifiable performances in competition. Entry performances will be accepted from the 2022 indoor and the 2021 indoor or outdoor seasons. Relay marks should be the team’s 2022 indoor performances, or the sum of the personal best 2021 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 VB Meets 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 number of competitor and refunding all those fees created an administrative nightmare. Therefore, we will not refund entry fees for athletes not accepted into the meet. Accepted Entry lists will be emailed to all registered athletes and coaches on Wednesday, February 16

HOW TO ENTER: All entry performances with date and location of performance and entry fees must be submitted and DECLARED through VB Meets by 6:00 pm eastern time on Tuesday, February 15.

Entry declaration deadline will be at 6:00 pm eastern time on Tuesday February 15

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 dweber@uky.edu. 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 descending order list to fill all events with the designated number of competitors. Enter field event marks in feet and inches.

ENTRY FEES: Entry fees SHOULD be paid through VB Meets, our on-line entry service. Entry fees are fifteen dollars ($15) per event in individual events, plus forty dollars ($40) for a relay team.

2022 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 or limited entry high school competitions hosted on a NCAA institution campus must follow NCAA rules. The NCAA mandates the selection of entries for limited entry events be determined solely by established numerical entry limits and a descending order of legitimate past performances 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 possible NCAA infractions, 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 athletes.

Don Weber
Meet Director
