Track Regulations

I. TSSAA Uniform Rule

All uniforms must follow the NFHS Rules. The referee will warn every participant prior to the meet that they must compete in a legal uniform, and if a contestant competes in an illegal uniform, then that contestant is disqualified from that event. There are no team warnings or individual warnings after the meet begins. Officials should use preventative officiating as much as possible.

II. Number of Events Open to Participants

No contestant may participate in more than three events in any meet. This regulation applies to all track competition regular-season meets as well as invitational, conference, sub-sectional, sectional, regional, and state meets.
A school may enter no more than three girls or three boys in any individual event and no more than one team in a relay.

III. Sectional

Sectionals must be completed by May 14, 2016.
