2021 UIL Track & Field Post Season Structure

District sites, meet directors, required fees, entry procedures, awards and meet schedules are to be determined by the District Executive Committee. Schools should contact the DEC Chair for district information.

The District Executive Committee will set the date and time scheduled for the district meet. The following applies:

  • Entries shall be submitted to the director at least five days before the first day of the meet unless district rules stipulate otherwise.
  • Each member school may enter one boys’ team and one girls’ team in the district meet.
  • Each school may enter up to and no more than three contestants in each individual event for the district meet.
  • Each school may enter only one relay team. In relay events, qualification is by school and not by the individual.
  • Scratches are permitted due to illness or academic ineligibility. If a qualified contestant cannot enter the next higher meet, then the alternate (4th place or next eligible finisher) is eligible to participate. If this occurs, the district director notifies the next qualifier and then contacts the regional director.
  • Only the individuals qualifying through the district, area, and/or regional meet are eligible to advance to the state meet.
