General Contest Information

We want to do our part to assure that you have a successful meet and ask that you give close attention to the information provided. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Regional Director.
If a student who has followed the State Conflict Pattern earns eligibility to compete at the regional level in more than one event and finds that he/she has a full or partial conflict in the two events, he/she must make a choice of which contest will be participated in. No adjustments will be considered to accommodate the conflict.
Admission fees for the Regional Spring Meet activities are as follows:
$10 for adults; $5 for students
Track and Field
$8 per day for adults; $5 per day for students
$12 two-day pass for adults
Contest coaches and participating students will not be charged an admission fee.
Entries and Certification/Eligibility
All Academic entries, including One-Act Play, are certified and entered into the Regional Meet through the UIL Spring Meet Online System. Please refer to the pages for golf, tennis, and track and field for submitting district results.
The eligibility of a student competing at the regional meet is the responsibility of the individual school.
In order to expedite the payment process for the 2019 Region 2-1A Spring Meet, the Regional Director has authorized the following flat rate fee schedule:
2019 Spring Meet Fees Event Cost Academic entry fee per district $2,970 Athletic entry fee per district $5,488 One-Act Play entry fee $750 for each company
How the member schools constituting the district divide the full slate fees for Academics and Athletics among themselves is the business of the member schools within the district and the district’s Spring Meet Chairperson. All fees are non-refundable. Please refer to Schedule of Fees for more information.
The District Spring Meet Chair for each district represented in Region 2-1A will collect the academic and athletic fees for that district and submit one check by March 26. Each school with a One-Act Play will submit a check to the Contest Director no later than rehearsal time on Friday, April 12.

Please plan to be present for awards for your event or have someone from your school present.

Open Carry, Campus Carry, and Smoking Policies
Pursuant to the law, open carry is not permitted by a license holder on the premises of an institution of higher education.
A law passed by the 84th Texas Legislature and effective August 1, 2016, changes the approach to carrying a concealed handgun on higher education campuses in Texas. The law is often referred to as “campus carry,” but it is officially Texas Senate Bill 11: Carrying of Handguns by License Holders on Certain Campuses. Texas statutes prohibits concealed carry on the premises where any UIL sanctioned competition is being held. Buildings where concealed carry is normally permitted but will be used for UIL competitions will have portable 30.06 signs placed at the entrances. For more information visit ASU’s website on campus carry Angelo State University and Campus Carry.
Smoking and the use of all tobacco products is only allowed in designated smoking-permitted areas.
No parking permit will be required for April 12-13, 2019 Academic Contests
Daytime Parking during the week will be in P27, at the Northwest Corner of the Junell Center. Unloading for One-Act Play will be in P5 near the main flag poles in front of the Mayer Administration Building. For clarification, see the campus map.
Supplies and Souvenirs
The ASU Bookstore, located in the Houston Harte University Center, will be open Friday from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. School supplies, books, T-shirts, souvenirs, and gifts are among the items available for sale. The Bookstore will be open Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
Verification, Awards, State Meet Information
Students, their coaches, and/or other school officials are urged to attend all verification periods and awards meetings. Regional meet directors are under no obligation to contact winners who fail to attend awards meetings with results. Information regarding the UIL Academic State Meet is posted on the UIL web site at https://www.uiltexas.org/academics/state. Information packets will not be mailed to schools or handed out during the regional meet verification meetings or awards ceremonies except for One-Act Play and L-D debate. Coaches and contestants must go to the UIL web site for the State Meet tentative schedule, UT campus map, UT parking, and other vital State Meet information. Responsibility for knowing times, dates, and sites of State Meet events rests solely with coaches and contestants. Second place regional teams should also look for the list of wild card qualifiers.
Withdrawals and Tardiness
A school that withdraws a student from a Regional Meet is responsible for notifying the appropriate alternate and the Regional Director. Refunds of entry fees for withdrawals will not be made. A list of absent contestants will be reported to the State UIL office from each academic event. It is vitally important that you notify the Regional Director in advance if a contestant will be unable to attend the regional competition.
