iii. The facility must be clean and well maintained.

7. FAT Timing!
a. We will be using FAT Timing at all meets this season!
i. (with the exception of the 300m @ UVM)

i. This starts at our 1st meet on December 12 and will continue all season.
c. Athletes will have an ID Bib to wear on the front of their jersey at All Regular Season Meets, for All Events.
i. We believe this will speed up the check-in process for us this season, as we should be able to forgo Hip Numbers in some events while still providing an accurate and quality timing service.
d. VITA will provide safety pins at the beginning of the season, but not for the entire season.
i. Please have your athletes "save" their safety pins by clipping them to their spike bag / travel gear, etc.
8. Community Service Hours
a. If you have any athletes who are injured / unable to compete, and are looking for "Community Service Hours", VITA will be happy to sign off on hours for raking the LJ Pit and setting up HJ & PV Crossbars.
b. Please contact me directly if you have athletes who are interested in doing this.
c. Volunteer Openings / Assignments can be found on the VITA Officials tab on our website.
9. We anticipate more questions may arise as the season begins, so please send them our way. In the meantime, good luck this season!
At its meeting on 11/25/13, the In-Door Track Committee voted to establish a D1 and D2 championship at the state meet in February. This was done due to increasing numbers. Listed below you will find a list showing how the schools were placed. Note – some schools that have club teams were still placed in a division even though their athletes compete as Independents.
The committee also agreed to establish a new event, the weight throw, for selected regular season meets this year. This event will not be a part of the state championships for this year.
Division 1 B&G – Burlington, Essex, Mt. Anthony, Mt. Mansfield, Rutland, South Burlington, St. Johnsbury. Also club teams from BFA-St. Albans, Brattleboro, Colchester, CVU and North Country.
Division 2 – all other schools and Independents from club teams.
