Facility Information

All athletes, student chaperones, and staff must enter through The Armory's main entrance on Fort Washington Avenue. Athletes and their chaperones will not be admitted unless they are scheduled for their event within 60 minutes. 

You will be denied entry if any of the following exists: 


  • You have experienced, or are currently experiencing, a fever, cough, or shortness of breath within the last 14 days.

  • You have had close contact with an individual infected or suspected infection with COVID-19 within the last 14 days.

  • You are traveling from a state that isn't contiguous with New York and haven't tested out of the quarantine guidelines (see below).

Once you have passed the screening in the lobby, you should proceed to the fourth floor and sit in the stands. Packets will be available for pickup on the way up to the fourth floor. 

Everyone must wear a mask at all times inside the facility, including competition!  

Everyone must socially distance themselves and keep six (6) feet away from others inside the facility.  

All stairways and walkways will be unidirectional.  Please strictly adhere to signs and arena maps that will be provided in each packet. 

Hand sanitizers are available throughout the facility. 

Each competitor will be permitted one (1) chaperone to accompany them. All chaperones will be required to sit in the 4th floor bleachers and not within six (6) feet from other chaperones and competitors. Chaperones will be provided wristbands in each packet that they should wear. No spectators will be permitted to enter the facility!

Once you are done competing, you'll be asked to collect your belongings and leave the facility through the exit door by the shot put cage on the third floor as soon as possible. If you are competing in multiple events, you may go up the southeast staircase back to your seat.


New York State Travel Advisory


All travelers entering New York from a state that is not a contiguous state, or from a CDC Level 2 or 3 Travel Health Notice country, shall quarantine for a period of 14 days, consistent with Department of Health regulations for quarantine, unless: 


1. For travelers who traveled outside of New York for more than 24 hours, such travelers must obtain testing within 72 hours prior to arrival in New York, AND 


2. Such travelers must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine according to Department of Health guidelines, for a minimum of three days, measured from time of arrival, and on day 4 may seek a diagnostic test to exit quarantine. 


For travelers that meet the criteria above, the traveler may exit quarantine upon receipt of the second negative test result. 


Contiguous states are Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont. Travelers from these states are not subject to this guidance. 


Travelers who leave New York State for less than 24 hours do not need to obtain a diagnostic test before departing and do not need to quarantine upon return. However, such travelers must fill out the traveler form upon entry and must obtain a diagnostic test on the fourth day after arrival in New York.


All individuals coming into New York from either a non-contiguous state or US territory, or any CDC Level 2 or Level 3 Health Notice country, whether or not such person is a New York resident, are required to complete the traveler health form upon entering New York. Significant penalties will be imposed on any individual who fails to complete the traveler health form. 



Running Event Information 


There will be no warming up inside The Armory. All warming up should take place across the street from The Armory entrance at the Haven pedestrian plaza or outside on the sidewalk. You may go back outside to warm up. Please have your bib on prior to going outside - that will be your ticket to get back in the building. Chaperones, if they wish to accompany their athletes outside to warmup, must wear their wristband to get back in the building.


Clerking for all running events will be done on the apron outside the track along the first turn (underneath the Virginia C. Fields Scoreboard).


All athletes should not enter the clerking area until called for their event, about fifteen (15) minutes before their scheduled event. Please respect the one-directional signage and use the appropriate staircases to go down. Athletes will enter the clerking area by the New Balance store and will line up by heat in the clerking area. ATHLETES NEED COME DRESSED TO COMPETE AND MAY NOT BRING ANY BAGS WITH THEM TO THE 3RD FLOOR TRACK AREA!


Because all events will be seeded prior to competition, every athlete should remember what heat and what lane they will be in. 


All running events will be FAT timed.


No outside starting blocks will be allowed into the facility.


Infield races (55m and 55m hurdles) will be contested with an athlete in every other lane. While one heat is on the line, the next heat will wait at the top of the oval, another heat will do strides on the backstretch, and another heat will do strides on the homestretch. In the 55m/55mH, the top 6 athletes by time will advance to a final, which will run immediately after the trial heats are over.


Oval races will have athletes starting and finishing at different ends of the track. They will be seeded so that no one starting from the different starting lines should be passed while competing.


Competitors will enter the track at the staircase on the first turn of the track in the clerking area and go to their lanes at their respective starting line. They can do a stride to get to the start.




Competitors that finish at the first turn will step off the track near the timing room and walk toward the door near the clerking area to exit. Competitors that finish at the far turn will exit the track by going down the new staircase near the throwing cage. 


Absolutely no spitting, nose blowing or other similar action will be permitted in any capacity including in or around garbage cans within the facility. 


Field Event Information


Athletes should remain in the stands until their event/flight is called. 


Athletes will enter the throwing cage using the northeastern staircase at the back of the 4th floor. Athletes in the throws events may bring their gear to the track level.


Jumpers will enter the arena by using the northeastern staircase at the back of the 4th floor. Athletes should walk along the wall on the final straightaway and cross the track to the long jump pits when it is safe. Jumpers may bring their gear and place it at one of the markings in the infield. 


Field events will be given an abbreviated warm-up period, but competitors should report to their event warmed up and ready to compete. 


Implements will be weighed during check in. 


Athletes are encouraged to bring their own implements. 


All athletes must retrieve their implement after each attempt.


All common implements will be sanitized between each attempt.
