Added/Removed/Amended Rules for 2019

ADDED 4/2/2019 Chapter 6, Article 2, list item “e”:

SUMMARY: For non-laned events (800, 1600, 3200) the waterfall starts shall now be seeded with the fastest runners on the outside lanes of the track (e.g. lane 8 or 9) instead of the inside lane (lane 1). See updated VCYTC Rulebook for specific language and diagram related to this rule.

ADDED 2/6/2019 Chapter 1, Article 2, Section 2-02:

Athletes in the VCYTC will participate in competitions consistent with their gender identity. The athlete’s identity is determined at the time team rosters are submitted to the VCYTC. All rules regarding competitions between genders will follow the current VCYTC rule book. If there are changes to an athlete’s identified gender after the roster submission, a written notice to the VCYTC must be submitted to change the athlete’s gender for the remainder of the season. The purpose of the proposal is not to allow athletes to choose the level of competition, but to allow the athletes to compete with athletes who are consistent with the athlete’s gender identity.
