2016 GATFXCCA Coaches Clinic Announcement

Atlanta Track Club is proud to partner with the Georgia Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association to host the 2016 Georgia Track& Field and Cross Country Coaches association for the second year.  This year's clinic will be held on January 13 and 14 at Atlanta Track Club and feature Olympics, national, college, and high school level coaches covering all disciplines in the sports of track and cross country.  As usual the mandatory GHSA rules clinic will also be a part of the clinic.  See below for an overview of the clinic schedule.

As part of the Clinic, coaches are invited to a social held at the Sweetwater Brewery hosted by the GATFXCCA and Atlanta Track Club.  Olympic Silver Medalist and the first sub 4 High School miler, Jim Ryun will be our guest speaker for the evening.
