Please note that some SAT and ACT test dates conflict with meets. You will be excused from meets for testing, but it's better if you plan to take your test on a date which does not conflict.
Recommended dates to take SAT/ACT:
ACT: September 14th, December 14th
SAT: August 24th, October 5th, November 2nd
Note: Footlocker West conflicts with SAT on Dec 7. This would only be for elite runners wishing to extend their season.
