FIYA SPRING 2022 TRACK & FIELD
The FIYA Track & Field 2022 season has officially come to an end, and it was one of our biggest seasons yet!
We had a total of 33 schools and over 2,000 student-athletes compete across our (4) individual meets with our largest individual meet having over 700 student-athletes.
NINE (9) FIYA T&F records were broken this season and our 2022 Division 1 Boys and Girls Seasonal Team Champions will be announced shortly! Thank you for an awesome season, and thanks for joining us! We'd like to give an extra shout out and big thank you to our host schools, Culver City High School and Serra Junipero High School (Gardena) for their support and allowing us to use their beautiful facilities this season.

DIVISION 1 TEAM SCORING & AWARDS
For FIYA Season Track Champions, trophies and medals are given to the Division 1 Girls Champion and Division 1 Boys Champion. To qualify, a school must have participated in at least 50% of the FIYA track & field meets during a season (for this year, at least 2 out of the 4 meets). Teams must finish in the top 5 team scores at an individual meet and points are awarded as follows: 5th Place - 1 point; 4th Place - 2 points; 3rd Place - 3 points; 2nd Place - 4 points; 1st Place - 5 points.
MORE SCORING DETAILS:
- When there is a tie in team scores (in any individual meet) with multiple teams for a top five finish, we add the point totals and divide by the number of tied teams. By way of example, if two schools tied for 2nd and 3rd place, we add the points (4 + 3) and divide by 2 so each team will be awarded 3.5 points.
- There is a maximum number of track meets for which a school team can earn points during a track season. The maximum number is the total number of FIYA track & field meets offered in a season minus one. In other words, since FIYA offered 4 track meets for the 2022 season, a school team can earn points in its three (3) best meets (we drop the lowest team score if the school team competed in all 4 meets).

SEASON DATES & TIMES
Our 2022 T&F season will be taking place between April and May, and we'll be hosting (4) FOUR individual "tournament" meets this season. Friday after-school meets will have 4 PM start times and our Sunday meets will have 12 PM start times. All dates/locations are posted on our T&F website.
FIYA organizes its tournaments geographically - we try to host at centralized locations so that more schools throughout the county can participate and eliminate travel. This year's track meets will be hosted at Culver City High School (Culver City) and Junipero Serra High School (Gardena). See exact track locations, maps, and parking instructions on our T&F page.
SPECTATORS & RESPECTING HOST FACILITIES
Spectators will be allowed and all FIYA Track & Field meets have a 50/50 raffle at the front gates of the event. Please notify your communities ahead of time and any donation is very much appreciated.
Out of respect for our generous host facilities, we ask that all athletes and school communities attending the event to clean up after themselves in the stands and on the property. Snack stands may be available for purchases on the day of the event, but NO food or drink (besides water) will be allowed on the track/field at all times. Also, no spikes of any kind or shoes made to take spikes will be allowed. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
