The 39th Annual HCTCA Relay Carnival will be held on Saturday, April 18th at Kearny High School. This meet, which is open to New Jersey schools only, provides competition for every level of your track & field program.

There will be Divisions for Varsity Boys, Varsity Girls, Novice Boys, Novice Girls, Freshman Boys, Sophomore Boys, and Freshman/Sophomore Girls. Championship Trophies are awarded to the top 3 varsity teams. In the varsity division points will be scored by the top 6; 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1 basis. Medals are awarded to the Top 6 finishers in all events / all divisions.

Coaches be aware that there is unlimited entry in all divisions except Varsity & all events except the shot put, javelin and discus relays. A school may not exceed 2 teams (A & B) in these weight event relays. Time constraints force us to put a limit on entry with these 3 events. We ask that you review the entry blank carefully. B, C, Etc. teams in the Varsity will compete as Novice and will not score.

The HCTCA is proud of the longevity of our competition. We are pleased to have many schools with us for the entire duration. It is hoped that if you have not joined us in the past that you would give our meet the opportunity to serve your program.

Entry Deadline is Friday 4/3/15
