The New York State Public High School Athletic Association Boys’ and Girls’ Winter Track and Field Championships and the New York State Federation Winter Track and Field Championships will be held on Saturday, March 4th at the Ocean Breeze Track & Field Complex, Staten Island, New York.


The track is elite level hydraulically banked tracks that can b e converted from eight to six lanes and can incline 4.5 feet. We will use the 8 lane sprint hurdle straightaway while the lapped races will be run on the six lane banked track. We will use the 2 Long/Triple jump runways, there are 2 Weight/ Shot Put cages, 2 High Jumps, and 2 Pole Vault runways. Only ¼” pyramid spikes are permitted on the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex.


Each section is allowed TWO (2) entries per individual event, with a possible third entry if the individual has placed third in their state-qualifying meet and has met the qualifying standards. Refer to the qualifying standards for information regarding the third entry. Each section is allowed up to TWO relays, if the second relay has met the standard, and has finished second in the state qualifying meet, in the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m Relays. The boys and girls Intersectional Relay will be composed of your third place finishers in the 300, 600, 1000, and 1500/1600 meter races, unless those individuals have met the qualifying standards. Those athletes must then compete in the individual event, and then the fourth place finisher competes in the relay. A section may list up to two alternates for the intersectional medley relay, provided that that individual is not competing in the individual 300, 600, 1000, or 1500/1600m runs.

Names of the winning individuals must be given to the State Coordinator either at the Friday meeting, or by 8:15 a.m. on Saturday, so that these athletes can be recognized by the announcer.


Ocean Breeze will provide the starting blocks. You may NOT use your own.

No writing on the waistband all the way around the shorts. Athletes will not be allowed to wear them at the state meet. That means no tape around the shorts, are the magic marker coloring them. If the compression shorts are underneath regular shorts, there is no problem. Logo on the shorts is be the size of a business card.

Athletes and coaches are to enter the building by the lower entrance (through the lower parking lot) of the building. Ideally, athletes should have their credentials. However, tables will be set up on the lower level so coordinators can meet their athletes and give them their credentials.
