  • Keep in mind that these Meet Entries are not the official meet entries.
    • The data in the meet entry lists here on the Alpha Crush web site are manually transferred into other systems (ga.milesplit.com, coacho.com, athletic.net) depending on the meet.
    • The specific Meet Information pages on this web site has links to "real" meet entries for that specific meet.
Who should complete a meet entry form?
  • Ideally, all registered athletes should have a meet entry form completed by their parent. 
  • Changes can be made up to the deadline for each meet, so if you change your mind later, no problem. 
  • Completing the form lets our coaches know what your athlete intends to do. 
  • Even if it is "no" to every meet, we'd like you to complete a meet entry form.
"I missed the entry deadline...can I still enter the meet?"
  • For middle school meets, no. 
  • For USATF championship meets, no. 
  • For developmental meets, maybe. 
  • Our advice? Don't miss the entry deadline.
Making changes to your meet entries
  • Use the "Edit your response" URL that was emailed to you. 
  • Email Coach Matthew if you can't find the "Edit your response" URL and he will email it to you.
What happens to the meet entries
  • Alpha Crush administrative staff (i.e. Coach Matthew) takes the information from the Alpha Crush meet entry page and creates the "real" meet entries in the appropriate web site, e.g. Georgia MileSplit, Athletic.net or Coach O. 
  • Meet entry fees are included in the club registration fee unless otherwise noted. At this time all meet entry fees are covered by the club registration fee.
