NCAA Track & Field Rules Committee defines regular season competition
- Official outdoor track meets: Proposed that official outdoor track meets must have a minimum of nine existing track events and six field events. Indoor meet requirements were recommended to be seven existing track events and four field events. The minimum requirement for participation is two teams, with a person representing each team in each event.
- Relay participation: The committee recommended that any eligible athlete who is a member of a university’s team is eligible to participate as a member of a relay team at any time during all competitions. Committee members said this reflects what is currently occurring at NCAA indoor and outdoor track and field competitions throughout the year, including conference championships. A university is the entrant for a relay event; therefore, the school should be able to run any combination of eligible student-athletes on its relay team in any round at any time during all competitions.
