Unattached Entries: Unattached athletes interested in competing must email the meet director (stwalsh@wm.edu) in advance for approval to compete.  There are no guaranteed entries for unattached athletes.

Entry FeesCollege -- $450 per team, per gender (i.e., $900 total for both a men's and a women's team); or $25 per individual entry if under 14 entries per gender.  High School -- $15 per individual entries, $25 per relay.

The W&M Athletic Department Business Office will be sending you a bill for your meet entry fee.  Checks should be made payable to College of William and Mary Athletics - on the memo line, write Colonial Relays.

Field Events: In all college division jumping and throwing events, there will be a championship section and an unseeded section.  The top 14 entries will be invited into the championship section.  All decisions are made by the meet director, and all marks will be verified by TFRRS.

It is the athlete's and coach's responsibility to know which section they are competing in.  If you miss your section you miss your event!

In the long jump and triple jump, the championship sections will get three (3) jumps and the top eight (8) will advance to the final for another three (3) jumps.  In the unseeded section, all jumpers will only get three (3) jumps.  All sections will be run on the same runways.

All throwing events will be contested at the Stimson Throwing Events Area, located off of Dillard Street.  The championship sections will get three (3) throws and the top eight (8) will advance to the final for another three (3) throws.  In the unseeded section, all throwers will only get three (3) throws.

Packet Pickup:  Final information for coaches and athletes will be in a packet that can be picked up outside of the main stadium gate, where teams may be dropped off.

We are looking forward to having your team with us in Williamsburg.  We encourage you to make housing arrangements immediately due to the tourist season.
