N.B. Athletes competing in the District Meet are not automatically committed to Provincial competition.
  • Following selection of the District team, or earlier if possible, a District Coach is appointed.
  • Travel arrangements for the Provincial Meet are the responsibility of individual athletes' coaches. Pooling is desirable.
  • Accommodation for the Provincial Meet is the responsibility of individual coaches. Arrangements may be made for team accommodation by the coaches at the District Meet.
