A clinic for aspiring track & field officials has been scheduled for Feb. 5 at Carson High School.
The clinic will run from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and the clinic will be held in the classrooms next to the gym. The cost is $35 which includes current USATF, NCAA and NFHS rule books.
Carson track coach Robert Maw said no experience is needed to learn to officiate. With Carson hosting the 4A regionals this spring, Maw is looking for as many officials as possible to help run the meet. He's also looking for people to help with the Tah-Neva meet as well as two home high school meets.
There will be a morning and afternoon session, and you must attend both to be certified.
The morning session will cover track events an deal with philosophy, safety, preparation, track event clerking, starting, umpiring, marshaling and finish line organization. The afternoon session covers field events - shot put, discus, horizontal jumps and vertical jumps.
You can register for the clinic online at www.active.com/running-membership/folsom-ca/pacific association-officials-clinic-2011.
