IHSA Level 1 Clinic

posted Dec 30, 2013, 6:58 AM by John Pearson

My name is Mike Powers and I am a Past-President of the Illinois Track & Cross Country Officials Association (ITCCOA).  Our association is sponsoring a Level 1 Track Officials Clinic on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at St. Charles East High School in St. Charles, Illinois.  The clinic starts at 9:00 am and will end at 3:00 pm.  Please note this IS a 6-hour clinic.  

I would strongly encourage you to attend.  IHSA Officials need to attend one clinic every three years and a first year official needs to attend a clinic before the end of their first year.  We are targeting first, second, and third year officials but officials of all years of experience may attend. 

We will be taking a “hands-on” approach in the instruction of starting procedures and procedures in the field events.  I am attaching a flyer with more information about the clinic.

I would also encourage you to join our Association.  Dues are only $15.  You may join by going to our website at    If you have already joined, that is great! 

The cost for the clinic is only $25.  You may register online at  The cost will be $30 at door.  Lunch will be provided. 

The Section Leaders in our association are having a Section Meeting in the near future to go over the IHSA Track and Field Rules Test and to just talk “track” and network.  Each Section Leader should be contacting each IHSA Official in their section inviting them to this meeting.  If you do not get contacted, please contact me and I will get you in touch with your Section Leader.
