January 11, 2013 Track and Field Blog Updates

As we begin the 2013 track season, we want to share some information with you.  The Board of Control approved the return to one turn stagger in the 800m and the 4x800m.  This was recommended by the advisory committee.  

Also recommended by the committee was that the online pole vaulting certification class for coaches be required for the entire season and not just for post season.  This was also passed by the Board.  If you were able to get to the KTCCCA Conference this past weekend, as I was, we were able to meet the creator of the certification, Jan Johnson, and receive an in-person clinic on pole vaulting.  Jan was not only extremely knowledgeable  but very entertaining.   We are working on the current list to be posted on the website for verification.

A post season officials fee raise was approved.  The fee has been raised to $100 per official for post season contest beginning with the spring 2013.  

A draft of the alignment is being prepared for review by the Board of Control.  Once the Board has approved the draft, the draft will be sent to the schools for further review and input.

Good luck to all schools as there participate in their indoor competitions.
