The first half of the clinic (12:30 pm – 3:30 pm) will be a mixture of classroom and demonstration for the field and track events in a round robin format. It will be led by experienced officials. The objective is to provide basic knowledge of track and field events. The clinic will include a review of the necessary steps to become a USATF certified official.  We will review the application process, review rules, explain how to do the background check and SafeSport training.

The second half of the clinic (3:30 pm – 5:30 pm) will allow attendees to complete the rules review (open book) necessary for certification. Attendees who choose to stay and complete the rules review will have one of the major steps to certification completed.
