Meet - Georgia Middle School Track Championships - April 19-20, 2019

Venue
  • Parkview High School, 998 Cole Drive Southwest, Lilburn, GA, 30047-5499
Special Notes
  • All competitors must be in 6th, 7th or 8th grade.
  • This is an "unusual" meet in that only 2 athletes per event per gender can be entered into this meet. Coach Matthew will make the final decision if more than 2 athletes wish to compete.
    • In other youth meets we typically are able to enter all who wish to compete.
  • Alpha Crush will handle registration for the team competing in the meet.
  • There is a "run as unattached athlete" option that can be used if (a) we've exceeded our 2 athlete limit and (b) the athlete still wants to compete in the meet. The parents will be responsible for registering unattached athletes, $25.00 per athlete. See meet information below for details.
