Starters Clinic (1:00 pm – 5:00 pm)

Will help establish a standardized method for starters/prospective starters for track events following USATF, GHSA and NCAA rules. It will give new and experienced officials foundational knowledge, protocol information, to help reinforce the rules and how to execute the correct application of those rules, as well establish a standard in technique and cadence for starters and prospective starters so the experience of each athlete can be as consistent as possible.
