​​​ Fast Finish Results

We use HyTek Track and Field Scoring Platform for our events.  (Click logo to go to Active product site.)


  We specialize in helping coaches and meet hosts      produce high quality Track, Cross Country, and Road Race Events.   As former head track and field coaches, we know what kind of challenges event management presents.

Our goal is to take the headaches out of home event  administration and allow coaches to do what they do best-  work with their athletes.

We will do everything possible to cover all aspects of your home event.   We specialize in making sure there are no problems on meet day.    We will calmly work through any changes or additions at your site.     We will arrive at your site no later than 2 hours before the start time and be ready 60 minutes prior to the first event.    We utilize high quality equipment that is fully tested and maintained.  Additionally, we have full back up capabilities-  event results are not lost and we do not have system breakdowns which slow your meet down.
