ORONO — The Maine Association of USA Track & Field will conduct a track and field official’s clinic on Sunday, April 15, in the Orono Council Chambers, Town Office Building, 59 Main St. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. and the clinic will go noon-4 p.m. (Entrance to Council Chambers faces Main Street.)
The clinic is for anyone interested in officiating track and field at the youth, high school, or college level and/or becoming certified or re-certified.
Don Berry, master official in the sport and the Certification Chair for Maine USATF, will conduct the clinic. The clinic is designed to provide both a beginning and advanced levels on instruction and will cover all aspects of track and field officiating and rules review.
Track coaches and track parents who want to learn more about the rules are encouraged to attend the clinic.

There is no cost for the clinic. Track rule books will be available for purchase. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
The sport of track and field is a wonderful opportunity for the young and old within our communities to stay active. Educated officials only help to improve the experience for all of these athletes. More track and field officials are needed in northern and eastern Maine. Hope to see you at the clinic.
