About The Meet

The third annual East Coast Championship will be held January 17 &18th at the Providence Career and Technical Academy in Providence.

We've make some adjustments to last year's format as we continue to try and bring you a high-quality, enjoyable meet.

This year, we have added Friday night relay events, including the Sprint Medley, Distance Medley and Shuttle Hurdle relays.

In order to allow more athletes to participate, we've relaxed our standards in many of the running events and lowered the opening heights in the high jump and pole vault. This year, we will accept all entries in the running events (except for the 2 mile and DMR).
