Simplot Games Now Accepting Registrations

Pocatello, Idaho – Registration for the 2015 Simplot Games is now underway. As in past years, registration can be done online, but for the first time all liability forms must also be filled out electronically at the time of registration.

The 37th annual Simplot Games will be held February 19-21, 2015 at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena.

Registration can be completed at www.simplotgames.com. It only takes a few minutes; just follow these easy steps:

  • Create a username and password;
  • Declare whether you are part of a team, or an individual athlete;
  • Sign up for the events in which you are participating (athletes can participate in one running event, two field events, and two relays);
  • For teams: Once the coach sets up the team password and enters all the athletes into the system, the athletes can then go into the registration system to electronically sign their Participation Agreement and Release of Liability Form;
  • For individuals: Sign the electronic Participation Agreement and Release of Liability Form (you will not be able to finalize your registration or pay your fees until this is completed);
  • Pay the fees (entry fees are $15 per athlete, plus $5 for each event, and a packet fee of $5 for each team or individual runner); and
  • Wait for the confirmation e-mail.

The $5 packet fee can cover one individual athlete, or a team of 90 (or more) and includes your competition number; times, heats, and lane assignments for your events; maps; a coupon for your Simplot Games t-shirt and Power Bar; and other promotions. Individual runners are encouraged to form teams in order to save additional packet fees. Registration ends on Sunday, February 15, at 11:59 p.m. MST. No refunds will be made after February 12, 2015.

The Simplot Games is unique because it is an open meet, which means athletes do not need a certain qualifying time or distance to be able to compete. 

“Everyone is welcome at the Games and this allows high school athletes from all over the chance to compete and have fun,” says Lisa Woodland, Simplot Games executive director. “It truly makes Simplot Games an extraordinary experience for everyone.”

More than 2,000 athletes will come from across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Australia to participate in the 37th annual Simplot Games. Simplot Games remains the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event. Sponsored by the J.R. Simplot Company since 1979, the Simplot Games are held at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena in Pocatello, Idaho.
