Many event coordinators will assume that the average person in this event isn't going to have taken calculus (even though they probably have) and will exclude it. At state when motion detectors can be used, they may have probeware that can take data for velocity and acceleration. I would only say there would be about a 10-20 percent chance of calculus.
I would say 0% - 1% that calc would be required at NY States and at nationals. Of course, sometimes you can use calc when it isn't required, but I would give long odds that they are not going to write an event which requires calculus.
