8:00am - New Officials (Apprentice) Orienation
8:30am - Check-in begins
9:00am - Clinic begins

The purpose of the clinics is to assist coaches, meet planners, referees, and track officials in creating a successful track & field environment.  The clinics will stress the fundamentals of track officiating, points of emphasis, new changes from all rule books, national mechanics, and tips of the trade. 

The clinic will be broken into 2 parts:  
Part 1 (from 8:00-9:00am) is dedicated for new officials that are interested in being certified.  During this 1st hour, we will do registration, paperwork, and orientation for new officials.  Even though this portion is geared towards the newer official, it is open to ANY official who wish to come early and attend. 

The 2nd portion is the standard clinic (for ALL) with the topics of discussion to be:
  • 2017 review
  • USATF Rule changes
  • Website navigation and tour
  • Certification
  • Safety
  • NCAA emphasis and reminders
  • How can I work the Olympics?    Paralympics?
  • NFHS rules and emphasis
Cost of advance registration has been set to $10,
