Teams will consist of 3 to 5 members. Teams may be single-sex or co-ed.
Interscholastic Rules of Competition
After clicking this link, scroll down to section K for complete rules for Interscholastic individual and team eligibility.
OUSA Membership Form
You MUST be a USOF member in order to run in an interscholastic class and to be eligible for individual or team awards. If you are not a USOF member, follow this link, fill out the form and send it in. If you are age 21 or younger, you can become a STUDENT member for $15 and also get a cool magazine several times a year. If you are under 18, you can also be a STUDENT member, or your cheapest option is to become a JUNIOR member for just $5. But, Junior members don't get the magazine.
There will be 4 races. The winners will be based on best 3 of the 4.
In each race, every
individual will receive 0 to 1000 points based on finish time. Winner gets 1000. Every other individual gets points based on
how far you are behind the winner, using the formula: (WT / T) * 1000 where WT
is winning time and T is your time.
For individual awards, your best 3 scores of the 4 races will count.
For team awards: For each race, the 3 best scores among team members will be added together for their team race score. Then the best 3 (out of 4) team race scores will be added together for your overall ESIS team score.
U.S. Interscholastic Championship Travel Grant
OCIN will award to the first place HS Varsity, HS Junior Varsity, and Middle School teams the following:
$200 for each student who participated on the team in the 2012 Eastern States Interscholastic Championship (ESIS), to a maximum of $1000 per team. Teams may substitute another student or students for the 2012 U.S. Interscholastic Championship (USIS), but the award will be based on the number of students on the team at the ESIS. If a team takes less students to the USIS, it will only receive funds for as many students as they actually take to the USIS.
This award may only be used for expenses related to participation in the 2012 U.S. Interscholastic Championship (USIS) in Washington State. If a team accepts the grant and then fails to participate in the USIS, they must immediately notify OCIN and all grant money must be promptly returned to OCIN.
Once winners are determined, the winning teams will have 48 hours to notify OCIN officials whether they wish to accept or decline the grant. If a first place team declines the grant, the award will be offered to the second place team. If the second place team also declines, it will be at the discretion of OCIN officials if the grant is offered to another team in that or a different division, or not offered to any other team.
A maximum of $3000 will be awarded. In the event of ties, the amount per team or student could be reduced so that the total amount awarded does not exceed $3000. OCIN reserves the right to award any declined funds and any additional funds or support to any team or individual solely at our discretion.
Team of Able, Baker, Charlie, Delta, and Ernie wins the ESIS high school division. They would be eligible for $1000 grant ($200 per team member).
The team accepts the award, but some students can’t make the trip.
The team takes Able, Baker, Bravo, and Foxtrot to the USIS.
Since the team took only 4 students to the USIS, their grant is now $800. It does not matter that they were not the same students who won the ESIS.
