2019 South Shore Middle School League 7th Annual

Invitational

Coach/Team Information Packet

1. The South Shore Middle School League Invitational is scheduled for

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at Forge Pond Park, King Street, Hanover.

Please note this is a rain or shine event unless weather conditions, such as

thunder or lightning present safety concerns for both runners and

spectators. Should the event need to be cancelled due to extreme weather

conditions, a decision will be made by the coaches and event organizers by

12:00PM on Tuesday, October 29, 2019. There will be no rain date.

2. Parking - Team Buses

All buses will enter Forge Pond Park from King Street and take the first right into the

drop off area - Lot A. The parking lot will be labeled with a “Buses Enter Here” sign.

Please follow the traffic flow. Runners should only exit the bus at the designated

drop off area. Team buses cannot remain at Forge Pond Park during the Invitational

due to limited parking. Alternative parking locations are available offsite within 1⁄2 - 1

mile of the venue.

If your runners/coaches are NOT transported by bus, please notify Kelly Lawrence at

klawrence@hanoverschools.org by Monday October 28, 2019 to make parking

arrangements.

Buses will follow the same traffic flow for departure at the close of the Invitational. All

coaches and runners must board their bus in Lot A. We kindly ask that a

coach from the team have a cell phone number to reach their bus driver to

advise when the team is ready to depart Forge Pond Park.

3. Parking -

There is limited parking at Forge Pond Park (approximately 300 spaces) and

we estimate the lots will be filled well before the race times. Upon entering

Forge Pond park, spectators will be directed to the furthest parking area (Lot E) until

filled. Each lot will be filled in the same manner. Parking will be permitted in

marked spaces ONLY! Police details will be onsite to direct traffic and volunteers will

be available to assist parking. Please note, any vehicle that is not parked in a

designated space will be subject to a ticket.

Handicap parking will be available in Lot B.

Once all parking spaces have been filled in Forge Pond Park, spectators will

be directed to Hanover Middle School, 45 Whiting Street, where we will

provide continuous shuttle buses to and from Forge Pond Park beginning at

2:30PM, running continuously throughout the event. Once this lot is full,

spectators will be directed to an overflow lot at Hanover High School where

shuttle bus service will continue.

We encourage families to carpool and to utilize the shuttle service.

Forge Pond Park will be closed to all incoming and outgoing traffic, with the

exception of the shuttle buses, between 3:30PM - 5:30PM or until the last

runner has safely passed the crossover points of the course to ensure the

safety of our participants and spectators.

Parking on King Street or neighboring streets will also not be allowed.

The complete shutdown of traffic in and out of the park is necessary to

properly secure the crossover sections of the course. The decision, made in

collaboration with the Hanover Police Department, will provide the highest

level of safety for all in attendance.

We recommend that spectators who do not plan to stay for the duration of

the event park at the Hanover Middle School shuttle location.

FAMILIES MUST PLAN ACCORDINGLY!

SHUTTLE ROUTES TAKE APPROXIMATELY 20 MINUTES ROUNDTRIP.

4. Foot Traffic Crossover Points

Two designated crossover lanes will be established to streamline the foot traffic from the

team areas to the course. All runners, coaches and spectators are expected to use these

designated areas to move between locations. Lanes will be established at each end of the

team areas, clearly marked and supported by a police detail.

5. Team Check In

A representative from each team should proceed to the Team Check In area located at

Lot A. The team representative will receive an envelope with all runners bibs, safety

pins, map of the park and an event information sheet. Payments and

Indemnification Forms will also be collected at the team check in. All teams

will have a designated meeting area and will be directed by volunteers to those sites. We

kindly ask that all runners NOT climb the fences surrounding the

designated team areas. Thank you for your cooperation!

6. Concession Stand

The concession stand, operated by Hanover Food Service, will be open throughout the

event. Grab and go items include granola bars, snacks, candy and an assortment of

drinks. Please note, the concession stand is CASH ONLY.

Runners are encouraged to bring water bottles. There will be water coolers and fresh

fruit available for participants at the finish line.

7. Bathroom Facilities

There are women’s & men’s rooms (handicap accessible) located at the Concession

Stand. In addition there will be porta potties on site for participants and spectators.

8. First Aid

Hanover EMS will be onsite for the duration of the event and our First Aid station will be

staffed by Hanover Public Schools Registered Nurses.

9. Timing

Electronic timing will be provided through the use of bib chips and finish mats.

**Runners will be asked to keep a safe distance from the finish when

they are not racing as the system may inadvertently pick up their bib

chip!!**
