No one should swear or throw a baton. Everyone should be on the same page. Include and involve the other schools in your Sectional. Track may be the only sport where we are forced, as coaches, to referee. I tell stories to illustrate my point. DuQuoin, the top seed, had a late exchange.
In my mind I can still picture it. The outgoing runner had both feet out of the zone reaching back to grab the baton. In my mind, he was out. I raised the red flag. I have never forgiven myself. That was 23 years ago and it still haunts me. I tell our coaches not to disqualify anyone unless it must be done. Measurement is never perfect. Measure twice, cut once.
Both statements are important to a Sectional seed meeting. We are not competing against each other, we are striving for excellence. We are all in this together. Kids love personalized shirts at Sectional. Last week, it was good news bad news. Boomer made only transfers because we sold three years ago. We could have sold shirts. I highly recommend Boomer-Ts. I designed the logo and kids liked it.
Your other option is to order t-shirts and sell them yourself. I always go through Angelo at The Graphic Edge. By the way, t-shirts must come from a licensed IHSA distributor. Yes, the IHSA gets a piece of t-shirt action.
Concessions at Sectional is a huge money-maker. Over people spectators, athletes, and coaches attended our Sectional. The meet started at 4: Almost everything was gone at Central by 6: No burgers, no pizza, no plan-B. Plainfield North could have made a boatload of money because we would not have run out of food. We would have had more than one window open to the concession stand. Lines would have been short. Plainfield North would have had food cooking throughout the meet. Cook meat at Sectionals.
Anything that makes people hungry is a good thing. John would have sold thousands of dollars of BBQ. Think out of the box. Find people you trust.

Do not simply ask every school to fax you the names of three workers. The three workers may look like they crawled out from under a rock.
I made personal contact with field event experts. I made sure my head field event people were trustworthy. We had three head football coaches working field events: I make fun of football coaches, but they are strong, trustworthy people. None of my coaches worked an event.
Instead, I made my own coaches managers. Sean Carlson managed the two throws. Brian Damhoff managed the four jumps. Both were given total responsibility for all things concerned with their events.
Tape measure, rakes, brooms, clip boards, extra cross-bars, scales, etc. I delegated and they managed. John Singleton was the hurdle manager. Here is our list of workers … Sectional Work Assignments. I feel strongly about this issue. I told the coaches at the seed meeting that our kids would run best if we had a time schedule with built-in rest, like the state meet. We can either have rested kids running fast times or we can get home 45 minutes earlier. Is anyone in favor of a rolling schedule?
The room went silent. At some Sectionals, Athletic Directors high-five other administrators for finishing the finals in world-record time 2 hours. Our finals took three hours, 6: My Athletic Director left Plainfield Central at If you want to see our time schedule, here it is … Time Schedule.
Music needs to be a part of your festival. Good times deserve a soundtrack.
The Sectional needs a playlist. My playlist started at 3: Give your Sectional some personality. Eligibility lists must be turned in to the regional host prior to the beginning of the regional.

Saturday of week 13 Cross Country: Adjusted annually according to the Easter date, and can be as late as April 1 or 2. Most common date is the Saturday in week Schools shouldn't schedule regular season games or matches during the regional window. Rules and regulations for each sport are given in the section devoted to the individual sport. Official rules for all sports may be obtained from the IHSA office.
The window is basically a week in length and the participating coaches are asked to schedule the complete tourney within that window of time.
Do not leave the final date of the window open and skip to the day following. The day following the regional window is to be used in cases where the finals were canceled due to circumstances beyond the control of the tourney manager. Some of the duties of organizers are: Schedule a meeting of the coaches involved in the regional tourney.
The semi-finals and finals of regionals are to be played at the same location. The main purpose of the meeting is to completely set up the regional tourney.
The actual seeds given by a school for the regional will be seen by all the schools assigned to the regional.
If it becomes apparent that some representatives have purposefully rated teams in a position that cannot be justified, appropriate actions may be taken by the SIJHSAA to correct the problem.
The placement of teams shall be done by random drawing. Expenses are shared by the participating schools. The only allowable expenses are officials, postage, paper, phone. Again that is providing the host does not charge admission for he meet, which remains an option.
