Alternates / Withdrawals/Tardiness
In case a qualified contestant is unable to participate in an event in the regional meet, it is the duty of the qualifier’s designated administrator to notify the spring meet district director in writing. The spring meet director shall contact the regional director as well as the next lower place finisher, who shall become qualified to represent the district. Alternates who are not taking the place of an absent qualifier shall not be allowed to participate in the competition. (Constitution and Contest Rules, 2017-2018 ; Section 903 (b)(3).
WITHDRAWAL AND TARDINESS
Refunds of entry fees for withdrawals will not be made. Being late to a contest without prior notification will mean forfeiture of that event.
