COACHES: Please read the following information carefully.
You will be responsible for squadding your athletes on the days and times that you see fit. Please ensure that you pick the correct dates and times.
If competing in more than one discipline on the same day, make sure you allow ample time between events.
You will have 10 days to fill squad times and pay for your slots. If not populated and paid, they will be erased, and that slot will be reopened to the general public. There will be no “hoarding” of time slots; only squad what you are sure will be attending for that event.
It will be the Head Coach’s responsibility to ensure that your athletes are squadded properly, and you will sign off on that at registration. Once signed, the squads are set and there will be no more changes to that squad. Squads with a mixture of athletes from different divisions will be placed in the “Open” category. Squads with athletes in the wrong division may be disqualified. Please see the SCTP Handbook for details.
If you have any questions pertaining to any of the above, please contact an SCTP staff person.Additional InformationOpen Category
