The Capital District Track & Field Officials' Organization will be holding new officials' certification clinic classes at Colonie High School starting the second week in January of 2015 to train prospective candidates for the 2015 outdoor track and field season. The first class will be held on Thursday, January 8, 2015 from 6 – 8 PM. Anyone who is interested should call 518-661-5637 to register for the clinic and to get additional, specific information.
See the attached modified rules changes Mark Therrien spoke about at our March 13 meeting. As pointed out, the rubber molded shoes are in effect now, but the combined modified/varsity meet schedules will not be seen perhaps until 2015's season.
Tom’s discussion is excellent, especially in light of today’s budget crunches being felt by most schools’ athletic departments. His common sense approach should prevent a lot of problems in the clerking area and at the starting line.
