Take I-20/59 to exit #120. Go south for 1 mile and The CrossPlex is on your left.
Special considerations for the 2020-21 season because of Covid-19 are as follows:
Doors will open when the Crossplex is done disinfecting and no more than 30 minutes before
the event is to start.
All spectators and athletes must wear a mask at all times (Unless competing) while inside the
The bleacher limit at any one time is 950, per The Crossplex.
Coaches are expected to do temperature checks on their own athletes prior to
competition/entering the Crossplex.
Athletes and coaches must stay on the home side bleachers.
Spectators can only view from the visiting side bleachers. (Long jump side of the track)
Only essential personnel are allowed on the Mondo surface. This would include competing
athletes, officials, volunteers and coaches in coaching boxes(limit of one per school per box).
Spectators, multiple coaches from the same school, college coaches and non-competing
athletes are not allowed on the Mondo surface.
Spike-check would be available outside the arena prior to the doors opening if it’s later than 30
minutes before competition. Inside the arena, spike-check will be set up in 2 locations and
monitoring will take place so that social distancing is done.
Athletes are encouraged to warm-up outside unless there is inclement weather. If there is
inclement weather, other arrangements will be made (If the bb arena is available).
The interior warm-up track will be monitored so that only the athletes who are in the next
competition will be allowed in that area. Example: if girls are running the 60 dash, only 60 dash
boys will be allowed in the warm-up track. There will be no loitering in the warm-up area. This
is for the final phase of warm-ups and is not intended to be a place to do an entire warm-up.
(i.e--if it takes an athlete 45 minutes to warm-up, they need to do at least the first 30 minutes
Athletes will be expected to know their heat and lane assignments. Heat sheets will NOT be
posted this year. All this information is available on-line @ xpresstiming.com.
All results can be found on-line as well. Results will NOT be posted after the competition.
Athletes will be called to a holding area near the shot put circle not more than 10 minutes before
they are to compete. Athletes should report ready for competition (no extra clothing or shoes).
Officials will line up athletes when they are 5 minutes away from competition to alleviate large
numbers of athletes waiting in the corals for a long period of time. Numbers will be handed out
to the athletes in the corals. Athletes will NOT have to get their number prior to this time, but
the athlete will need to know what lane they have been assigned so they get the correct
number. The official will NOT have time to look up this information for the athlete.
Athletes should have their mask on until they are in their lane on the track. At the starting line
they may remove the mask and the athlete is REQUIRED to carry the mask during competition.
Immediately after the competition the athlete should put their mask on. Failure to have the
mask after competing will result in disqualification from the event. It is suggested that many
athletes consider wearing the gator-type mask so the possibility of losing a mask during
competition does not exist.
After finishing a dash race, the athlete will immediately exit the Mondo surface and not go back
toward the clerking area.
After finishing a race on the oval, athletes will remain on the inside of the track near the finish of
the dashes. After the next race has started, the athletes will then exit the track near the long
jump pit and then immediately exit the Mondo surface without heading back toward the clerking
The Crossplex will have designated entrance doors and exit doors.
We will follow USATF guidelines for how many participate in a dash race. These guidelines
vary depending on the current threat level of Covid-19. High threat level is every other lane.
Low threat level, as it is currently in October, would allow every lane to be filled.
There will NOT be any water coolers available at the Crossplex. Athletes should bring their own
personal containers of water or purchase it from the concession stand. Sharing of drink
containers is strictly forbidden.
The shots will be disinfected after every throw.
Hand sanitizer will be used by athletes before and after touching the starting blocks.
