The maximum entry fee for a team is $400 per team, per gender (i.e. $400 for women, $400 for men).

All entry fees must be paid in full before a packet may be picked up. Checks should be made payable to the University of Oregon Athletic Department.

Field Sizes 
We will accept entries so as not to exceed two sections in all running events. Field events will be limited to a maximum of 12 competitors, although meet management reserves the right to accept fewer than 12 competitors based on the quality of entries. Preference will be given to NCAA Division I institutions. Meet management reserves the right to select which entries will be accepted and in which sections entrants will be placed. If you have questions, please email OregonMeets@gmail.com.

Field Events 
Please note the starting heights and progressions in the vertical jumps. These progressions may be adjusted based on conditions or the quality of competitors accepted. All competitors in the throwing and horizontal jumping events will receive 4 attempts only. An athlete’s first legal attempt will be measured regardless of the distance achieved. Afterwards, all remaining legal attempts must surpass the published minimum distances to be measured.

Schedule of Events 
The Oregon Preview will feature an abbreviated schedule of events based on interest. Meet management reserves the right to cancel events based on the quality and/or number of entries. A final time schedule will be posted to GoDucks.com on Thursday, March 20.
