K-State to Host Certification Clinic

Kansas State University will be hosting an Official’s Certification Clinic put on by USA Track and Field on Sun., Feb. 17, 2008. The event will start at 2 p.m. and continue for a few hours.


The clinic is open to anyone who may be interested. The USATF charges a $25 certification fee to be an official as well as member fees with the USATF which cost $29.95.


Rules covered by the clinic will mainly follow NCAA specifications, but clarification can be made as to high school, USATF and AAU rules. This clinic will certify people to be officiates of any position, from being a starter to an umpire of any of the several positions at each field event.


All interested should contact Andy Eggerth via email at aeggerth@ksu.edu or at phone number (785) 587-7871 as soon as possible so a count can be taken.
