  • Though large schools and small schools will compete in the same events (and individual scoring will be 10-8-6-4-2-1 for the top six places), overall team awards will be presented in both large-school and small-school groupings .

Christ-Centered Environment and Team-Building Opportunities:

  • This meet is held in a distinctly Christ-centered environment -- from the setting on a Christian college campus (which we hope teams and families will take time to visit), to the Opening Prayer at the start of the meet, to the spirit of mutual encouragement and healthy competition typically displayed at this event, to the unified time of team fellowship and prayer at the Closing Ceremony.  This NCSAA track meet is distinctive in its goal of being more than just an athletic event; we desire that your athletes experience the joy of Christ-centered competition and respond to the challenge of using their gifts in such a way to honor Christ during their time at the meet!
  • The setting of this meet -- the Christian college campus of Grove City College -- presents an opportunity for your players to visit the campus while you attend the event.  Opportunities may include family or team campus visits, interaction with admissions personnel, etc.  Teams that attend our events have remarked that these opportunities have been very valuable, as the event doubles as an opportunity to expose your athletes to the value of and options for Christian education beyond high school.

Beneficial Exposure for Your Athletes:

  • College coaches are invited to attend the meet, and the meet results are published to the attention of college coaches nationwide.  These measures present your athletes with a great opportunity to be seen by college coaches, scouts, and recruiters.

We understand that occasionally there may be reason for a team to withdraw from the meet, after having already registered. If any team must withdraw after already registering for the meet, that team still will be expected to honor its commitment to pay the full team registration fees. NCSAA must budget based on the number of registered teams, and all fees for all registered spots are critical in order to plan for and conduct a successful meet. Thanks for your understanding of this!.

We will post a list of local hotels at a later date.
