& WAIVER OF STANDARD:
The IC4A will continue the practice of
allowing athletes that are Conference Champions to compete in the IC4A
Championships even if they
have not made the Qualifying
Standard. In the case of Conference Champion, you may designate only one (1) conference

is NOT in addition to the "Waiver of Standard" rule.
Note that the Heptathlon does not come under this rule.
will also continue the
practice of allowing athletes from schools that do not have qualifiers in either
the running events, relays or
field events to compete.
They may enter one
(1) running event athlete/relay and (1) Field event athlete. If you have
qualifiers in the “track
events” and not the field events, you may enter (1) field event
qualifier and vice versa. We are just continuing to follow the
established several years ago.
