SANCTIONING:  The Univ. of Kentucky High School Invitational is sanctioned by USA Track  & Field (USATF) and hosted by the Kentucky Milers' Club, a USATF club.

ENTRIES:  Entry Consideration into the Kentucky Invite is open to any high school age athlete regardless of state of residence. Depending on a state's high school athletic association's eligibility rules,Athletes may compete as members of their team, a trackclub, or as an unattached competitor. Individual membership in USATF is not required. The UKHS Invite is intended to be a quality competition with selective entries based on previous verifiable individual performances. The entry limitation in each event are intended to ensure a quality competition in a timely, efficient format.
Since the meet is a selective entry competition rather than an open or all-comers meet, Submitting an enry form with an entry fee does NOT guarantee acceptance into the competition. Prior to entering, please check the entry guideline page (last accepted entries in 2006,2007,2008) to determine the likelihood of being accepted into the competition. We will not refund entry fees for athletes not accepted into the meet due to the administrative nightmare...simply do not enter athletes that don't meet the "guidelines".  RETAIN A COPY OF YOUR ENTRY FORM TO FAX YOUR DECLARATIONS. (See CONFIRMATION OF ENTRIES at the bottom of this page)

Type or print NEATLY the full name and grade level of all entries with accurate previous best performance information. Do not submit estimated or projected performances. List all running event entries as fully automatic or electronic times (1:56.32). It is highly recommended that you enter performances achieved at major invitationals that are verifiable. Performances should be accomplished at a meet where results are posted on a website. For the 60m and 60m hurdles events please use the athlete's best 100 meter or 100m/110m hurdle times. In the past we've received both indoor and outdoor performances and we do not want to convert times. YOU MUST enter your athletes with accurate performances to ensure the best and fairest competition. To ensure & check the validity of entry performances, coaches must indicate on the entry form the meet and date that the entry performance was achieved. Additionally, the Kentucky Invite "Challenge Rule" will be available. If a coach has reason to believe an athlete has been entered with an inaccurate performance, the coach may challenge that performance (contact Jim Kaiser) and if the performance in question cannot be supported, the athlete will be re-seeded. If qualified athletes scratch, other athletes will move up the list to fill all events with the approprate number of competitors. Enter field event performances in feet and inches. Athletes will be selected based on verifiable 2008 personal best performances. Special entry concerns should be addressed to Jim Kaiser at 859-266-4986 (day or night) or by email at jimkaiser@mindspring.com  .

WARM-UP LOGISTICS:  Athletes must warm-up on the football field. A warm-up oval will be marked with banners on the turf.

Warming-up will not be allowed on the track !
