​All zonal competitions have been organized so that no more than two zonal meets are held on the same day so to ensure the availability of technical officials. The zonals will also be held before the Carifta trials (March 11 & 12) to give any new talent discovered a change to represent the country at the Carifta Games. In addition, each athlete will be limited to three individual events and two relays to prevent overwork and burnout.
