Preliminary Information

A brochure giving details of the 2014 Track & Field Cup competition was posted to schools during the first couple of weeks of January. It is also published online here - click the Event Brochure option on the left. The posted copy of the brochure contains a security code to enable you to access the online entry form.

If you haven't received a brochure by post you can use the contact the ESAA facility on the home page to request us to send the code to you. Naturally, we won't send security details to just anyone - you must give a school email address on the contact form, or an address which was previously registered with us so that we can verify who you are, but if we can not do so we will telephone your school directly.

Online entries open in mid-December and will close on 28th February 2014.

Note that you cannot login via the competition progress link using previous year's login details, those details are not carried over from one year to the next. You need to ENTER your teams first via the online entry form link - you set up your email address and password for this competition when you fill in the entry form.

Please destroy any copies of existing points tables you might have from 2013 or earlier, and use the new 2014 tables which are published in the menu here. Likewise, you must not use earlier versions of the results program for your competitions - you will need to download the new version which is available on the website for event organisers to download when you login. You will not be able to download entries or upload results to the website using earlier program versions.

The Athlete Progress Monitor program has also been updated - if you use it, you will need to download the new version so that the correct points are shown. It is available to download from your menu when you log in.
