Georgia Track & Field Clinic January 29, 2011
Due to the road conditions with our recent weather I have postponed the clinic to another possible date in January. I would like to see if I can possibly find an open date on 22nd or 29th of January or 1st week in February at a school to host a one day clinic. It appears that there may not be school in metro Atlanta this week.
If you have sent your fees to me I can sent the check back to you. If we can find a date in January or 1st week in February to host the clinic I can reimburse you the difference in the amounts. I would like to have a one day clinic for around $40.00 (9:00-4:00 tentative time schedule). Schools with 4 or more coaches I will give a discount to for the clinic.
Hotel Reservations at Marriott:
Please cancel your rooms at the Marriott so you don't get charged for staying there.
Hope to see all of you soon
