Allow Foreign athletes in Final - Check this box if you wish Foreign athletes to compete in the finals; otherwise, Foreign Athletes will be treated as Exhibition and will not advance to Finals and will not receive awards.  All reports and results will place an asterisk in front of the athlete name, making it easy to know who is a foreigner.

         

Allow Exhibition athletes in Final - Check this box if you wish Exhibition athletes to compete in the finals; otherwise, these Athletes will be treated as Exhibition and will not advance to Finals and will not receive awards.  All reports and results will place an x in front of the athlete name, making it easy to know who is exhibition.

         

Seed Exhibition athletes last - Check this box if you wish to seed Exhibition Athletes last regardless of entry time/mark.

 

Note: Exhibition athletes are denoted by entering an X in front of their mark in final round events. This will keep the results intact, but will prevent the exhibition athlete from getting a score if team points are being awarded. If a given athlete's status is exhibition as designated by his/her status as entered in the Athlete Menu, he /she will automatically have an X placed in front of the results mark in final round events.

 

Apply NCAA rule 10-5a - If the meet is set-up as an NCAA meet, you can apply NCAA rule 10-5a for seeding indoor meets in the 200 and above that are in lanes and advancing by time only. This rule requires the assigning of heats from left to right only instead of using the serpentine method of alternating left to right and right to left. You are given the option to use the rule when you seed an event that meets the criteria for the rule.

         

Use special Random Select Method for Seeding (creates athlete/relay slots) - Checking this box makes the meet a Random Select meet whereby each team is given a certain number of entries for each event and those entries are randomly seeded in each event. Caution is advised because seeding with this method deletes all existing entries and replaces them with the computer generated entries.
