COACHES' LEADERBOARD NOTE - In the Sprint races especially, it is most important that all coaches are on the same wave length when making leader entries. This is the process: 100m - kid runs 11.52 hand time which rounds up to 11.6, then click the hand time box which adds .24 sec for a converted FAT time of 11.84 (always ends in a 4). Why did I round up??? Hand times should not be measured in hundredths. Because all coaches and officials are not going to be right on the gun and the finish every time. The start is always late (by at least .24) and without the camera, the click at the line is not always accurate.  Bottom line: all non-FAT times need to be rounded up with .24 added on.  Thanks!  Dave Y.

  Miscellaneous:

 New- ALL-TIME INDOOR LISTS: Coach Yen, with the help of a few other coaches,  has started to compile Indoor "all-time" lists for Boys and Girls from sanctioned HS meets. The ultimate goal is to get to the top 10-15 for our standard events.  The committee will decide on any conversions. Prior to 1980, most races were yards. (ex. John Tuttle in 1977 ran 2:14.2 1000y, 1000m is 1093.61y).The initial lists are linked here:  Girls - Boys -

RELAY ENTRIES BUG: Unfortunately, Clicking the X to remove a relay from the Entries List removes all relay teams from that event. To remove a relay team (like D) without removing others (A,B,C), simply "Make Entries", select that relay event, then remove the time from that relay (D) and then save. Team D is now gone and A,B,C remain.
