In many areas including matters of entry fee, awards, and competition format an invitational can charge what they
want, award how they want and run the meet to best fit their needs. In addition, with the exception of the athlete age

run in Texas follow our State Meet age groups. A good guideline for running can be found at:


Equipment specifications and matting requirements as outlined in the National R&P cannot be changed. Those
