points of emphasis compliance with entry rules using electronic entry
Points of Emphasis – Compliance with Entry Rules Using Electronic Entry
  • Use of electronic software for entries and meet management is popular and efficient.
  • Merging electronic entries with NFHS rules may create a few administrative issues.
  • The state association, or meet management, should communicate with participating schools on how entries shall be submitted within the spirit of the rules.
  • Use of electronic meet management software does not change rules for coaches being able to change entries even though they may have been submitted earlier.
