Pocatello, Idaho – It’s that time a year again to register for the 2016 Simplot Games. The 38th annual event will be held February 18-20th, 2016 at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena.
The nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event is an excellent opportunity for high school athletes to compete against other athletes from all over North America, Mexico, Canada and Australia. Simplot Games is an open track meet, which means athletes do not need a qualifying time or distance to enter and compete. Everyone is welcome at the Games allowing high school athletes from all over the chance to compete.
Simplot Games is not only a great track and field event, but gives athletes other opportunities to have fun. These opportunities include a meet and greet with Olympic athletes, a dinner and dance, workshops for improving skills and much more.
As in past years, registration can be done online. All liability forms must also be filled out electronically at the time of registration.
Registration can be completed at www.simplotgames.com. It only takes a few minutes following these easy steps:
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 and other promotions. Individual runners are encouraged to form teams in order to save additional packet fees. Registration ends on Sunday, February 14, at 11:59 p.m. MST. No refunds will be made after February 11, 2016.
“Simplot Games is an extraordinary experience for everyone, by providing high school athletes from all over the world the opportunity to compete, improve and have fun,” said Lisa Woodland, Simplot Games executive director.
More than 2,000 athletes will come from across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Australia to participate in the 38th annual Simplot Games.
