(from Munster site )
In preparation for the Munster U12 to U19 T&F Championships this weekend please see instructions below and attached maps regarding parking and flow of athletes within the stadium. I have made one change to the timetable concerning the Javelin competitions as there were clashes with Shot Putt.

Officials, Athletes and Club Team Managers who want to gain entry to MTU need to complete the Covid Questionnaire BEFORE attending the venue. The link is available on the Munster website and at the end of this e-mail.
There will be just one entrance over the weekend for officials, athletes and Club team managers. This will be the covered entrance that leads up to the back of the stands (see map attached). Gate keepers will have a list of all people eligible for entry. If you are not on the list, you will not gain entry.
Entry for athletes, officials and team managers only. No spectators or parents allowed.
A number of Childrens’ Ambassadors have been appointed for the weekend. They will assist any athletes who need help with starts, field marks etc. Officials will also be on hand to assist any athlete who needs help.
There will be no refreshment facilities/shop available onsite.
Parking will be available at MTU. See map attached.We hope to have toilet facilities available to parents. I will confirm this later.
Live results will be available on the day at live.munsterathletics.com. Results will also be posted online on the Munster Athletics website.
Athletes should report to the venue no more than 30 minutes before their event is scheduled. Warm up will be permitted in designated areas on the track. Team Managers will allocate them with their numbers.
Athletes should bring a face mask and wear it when entering the venue and collecting their numbers and when in close contact with others. They should also bring hand sanitizer and avail of the hand sanitizer available onsite.
Athletes in the throws events should, where possible, bring their own implements and towels. There will be a certain amount of implements available for athletes who don’t bring their own.
All implements have to be weighed in before the competition. Please ask when checking in and you will be directed to the weigh in area.
For Field events, athletes must remain inside the competition zone at all times during the competition. Any athlete that leaves the competition zone, will be disqualified. That includes approaching the perimeter fence during competition.
At no time are officials at the finish line or at field events to be approached enquiring about performances
Athletes have been allocated with the same number for Day 2 so please ensure that you keep your number for the competition on 17th and 18th July.
Medals will be available for collection by medal winners on the day (for Field events at the site and track events at the finish line) but there will be no medal presentations.
Once an athlete has completed their event they must leave the premises to ensure covid compliance. Gate for exit is between the stand and the red brick building(see map attached).
Numbers can be collected by Team Managers at the back of the main stand on both days.
Team Managers are on site to distribute numbers to their athletes and direct them to their competitions at the appropriate times from their dedicated area in the stand. Team Managers are not allowed to leave the confines of the stands. Athletes must warm up on their own without team managers.
Each Club is allowed a maximum of two team managers on site at any one time. If they need to change over to two further team managers, this must take place outside the gate and the new members must be on the gate keepers list.
Reminder of the appropriate use of masks
• Clean your hands properly before you put it on
• Cover your mouth and nose with it and make sure there are no gaps between your cloth face covering
• Carry unused masks in a sealable clean waterproof bag (for example, a ziplock bag)
• Carry a second similar type bag to put used masks in
To remove it correctly:
• Remove it from behind – do not touch the front of the mask
• Do not touch your eyes, nose, and mouth
• Clean your hands properly
• Put disposable masks in a bin straight away
• Touch a mask or face covering while wearing it – if you do, clean your hands properly
• Use a damp or wet mask or reuse a mask
• Lower your mask to speak, eat and smoke or vape – if you need to uncover your nose or mouth, take the mask off and put it in the bag for used masks
• Don’t use your scarf instead; pulling a scarf up and down over your mouth and nose is not effective
Thanking you in advance for your co-operation. We are all in this together and if we all work together, I am confident that we can give the athletes the Championship they deserve after all they have faced over the past year and a half.
