The 17th Annual

INDIANA MIDDLE SCHOOLCROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS



Saturday, September 30th, 2017


...is presented by Indiana All Star Running Club. We are a not-for-profit organization founded in 2000 by area cross country coaches and running enthusiasts. Our mission is to provide a rewarding championship event for middle school runners, to introduce them to running in a large event prior to high school, to promote sportsmanship, and to encourage the habit of daily running for a lifetime. We believe that running instills discipline, focus, and principles of hard work which inspire people to be the best that they can be in every area of their lives...as students, athletes, friends, family members, and citizens.

Coaches: Please review our event Rules, Eligibility, and School Size information section each season! Changes are sometimes made in response to issues that arise as this event develops and grows. Thank you!

General Meet Information



Who

Open to all Middle School runners/teams who meet the qualifying standard. These time standards are set such that any young middle school runner can achieve them with an honest effort in their training and preparation...regardless of talent level. They are intended to be used as goals and are set intentionally to include everyone, rather than exclude anyone!

What

The largest Middle School CC Meet in America! Four Varsity races contested as Big School and Small School divisions, and two Junior Varsity races.

Where

Northview Church - Carmel Campus: 5535 E 131st Street, Carmel, Indiana (corner of 131st Street and Hazel Dell Pkwy)

When

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

Why

To bring the best Hoosier MS runners and teams together, to acclimate these runners to a large championship race, and to recognize the efforts of remarkable coaches!


Team Rules, Participant Eligibility, and School Size Information

  • If an athlete’s Middle School does NOT offer Cross Country as a team sport, and they compete during the season for another Middle School, then those athletes may compete as a member of that team. IN ALL OTHER CASES, all individuals on a team must attend (or feed into) the same Indiana middle school…no exceptions!
  • Teams may enter more than seven individuals per team in the Varsity races, if those runners are all varsity-caliber runners. Top 5 score. Only seven individual trophies are awarded to All-State teams. 
  • No "B" teams are allowed in the same Varsity race.
  • This is an Indiana Middle School Championship. As such, only student athletes who are enrolled in Grades (5), 6, 7, or 8 in a school located within Indiana's state boundaries may participate in the four Varsity competitions. This includes those who are home-schooled, legally reside in the state of Indiana, and are currently at the (5th), 6th, 7th, or 8th grade level.
  • If a participant is found to not satisfy the above requirements, they and their team will be disqualified.
  • Any 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade runners who wish to compete, may participate in the Junior Varsity competitions,  provided they have exhibited the ability to finish the 3K distance in a timely and competitive manner. (Parents / Coaches please use discretion when considering this option).
  • 5th grade athletes, who have competed regularly for their Middle School during the regualr season, may compete in the Varsity competitions.
  • Home-schoolers competing for a team must have run for the middle school they're entering with this year.
  • Runners entered in JV races serve as alternates. 
  • Small School = 425 or less in grades 7&8 combined.
  • Big School = over 425 in grades 7&8 combined.
  • Small Schools can "move up" and compete in the Big School Races!
  • Big Schools may NOT "move down" and compete in the Small School Races!

Varsity Qualifying Time Standards

These are time standards which we believe any young middle school runner can achieve with an honest effort in their training and preparation...regardless of talent level. They are to be considered a guideline, not a hard and fast rule, for coaches to follow:

Individual                                                                                      

Small School Girls - 14:30
Small School Boys - 13:30
Big School Girls - 13:30
Big School Boys - 12:30

Team (top 5 add-up times)

Small School Girls - 72:30
Small School Boys - 67:30
Big School Girls - 67:30
Big School Boys - 62:30

Protest Policy

Due to concerns voiced in past years, we have instituted a Protest Policy for any coach who feels compelled to challenge a school's size division entry. Any challenge must be presented in the following manner:

  • The challenge must be made in writing to Club Co-Directors Kelly Wire or Matt Wire at least two hours before the start of the meet (start time of the first race).
  • The challenging coach must include a basis for the challenge.
  • The event organizers will handle any protests according to the full policy*.

Payments are made by credit card. 

Note: Please contact service@getmeregistered.com for all registration process issues or call the staff at GetMeRegistered at 317-846-0078, ext 611.

Coaches:

  • You must be prepared with your school's combined 7th and 8th grade enrollment on a day (of your choosing) between the opening and closing of this registration. You will be required to submit this number and place your teams in the appropriate School Size Division. 
  • Please exercise care when typing athletes' names, as all names on event merchandise will be printed from a registration download.
  • You are registering these kids for the event when you complete the process, not a particular race. We do not need to know which race the kids intend to run. So long as they line up and compete in the appropriate race, everyone's happy. It is up to the coach, parent, and/or athlete to make sure they do this. We will just score the runner for whatever race the chip assigned to them crosses the line!
  • Event merchandise is not included in the price of registration. It will be for sale on event day.

 USATF Sanctioned Event

*Full Protest Policy: Following the submission of the challenge, one of the aforementioned club representatives will phone or approach the challenged coach and ask him/her to verify their submitted 7th and 8th grade combined enrollment numbers during the stipulated timeframe. If the coach indicates their enrollment to be 425 or less within the aforementioned timeframe, we will take his/her word and request the principal to send us a letter verifying the enrollment as having met our qualifications. If time allows, this will be required prior to meet day.

We will not change awards once they have been awarded (due to an enrollment challenge), but if verified prior to the awards ceremony,we will disqualify any school that competes in the incorrect race. If Indiana All Star Running Club does not receive the requested letter from the challenged school's principal confirming "small school" status within 30 days of the meet, we will request the school submit a letter from their school principal confirming small school status prior to allowing registration for future meets.
