Are you a NEW track and field official and looking for a MENTOR to help you get started with officiating track and field?

Are you an EXPERIENCED track and field official and are willing to help a new official get started with officiating track and field?

Mike Powers, the ITCCOA Mentoring Coordinator, is looking for qualified MENTORS and MENTEES.  Here is some information about the ITCCOA Mentoring Program:

·         One of the missions of the association is to provide its members with the opportunity to develop their professional skills to better serve the sports of track and cross country.

·         The supervising official (Mentor) must be a member of ITCCOA and have a minimum of seven (7) years of experience as a licensed IHSA official in track and cross-country.

·         The official being mentored (Mentee) must be a member of ITCCOA and have five (5) or fewer years of experience as a licensed IHSA official in track and cross-country.

·         The supervising official and mentored official must work together at four (4) meets during the year. 

·         The official being mentored is to also serve as a volunteer official in some capacity in the IHSA State Series competition (Sectionals and/or State Finals). 

·         Upon successfully completing the four (4) mutually attended meets and the state series requirement, the mentored official will receive compensation in the amount of $50 from the association.

 

There is more information about the MENTORING PROGRAM on this website.  Just click on the MENTORING tab from the HOME page.

If you are reading this and you are one of our newer officials and would like a MENTOR, please contact me.  I will do my best to get you a MENTOR.  Or maybe you already know somebody that can be your mentor. 

If you feel you could help out one of these new officials, you will probably qualify to be a MENTOR.  Please contact me about being a MENTOR. I will do my best to match you up with a MENTEE.  Or maybe you already know somebody that needs mentored.

Please complete the MENTORING APPLICATION (found by clicking on the MENTORING tab) and get it to me.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
