Re: Entering as an individual

I don't know if the student is home schooled or that the school doesn't have a track team???? But, your answer is probably in this doc. http://www.iesa.org/documents/handbook/ ... ndbook.pdf

Re: Take off

Stride can be more than just your run. Without a video, this problem is hard for us fix. With that being said, you can work on your run using 20/20's as describe in Beginner to Bubka by Alan Launders. You can also lay down a measuring tape on a lane of the track, not on the pv runway, and work on yo...
