The meeting began as a general and then was closed in order to pick the coaches for the 2018/2019 Non World Team Coaching Staffs. These teams included:
2018 IAAF Indoor Championships- Birmingham, 2018 World U20- Tempere, 2018 NACAC Senior Champs- Toronto, Pan Am U20- TBD, 2019 NACAC U23 Champs- TBD
1. During our meeting we voted on the staff’s (Head Coach) sprint/hurdle, jumps/multi, distance and throws coaches. Our picks will not be made public until the board passes them through.
2. If the Board decided that one of staff picks does not align with USATF somehow we will need to together to revote and choose another staff member and begin the process again. We will need the same group of women or alternated (Natasha H, Amber C, Lauryn William, myself (include Queen Harrison)).
3. If an athlete has an opinion of a coach that they know has applied to a staff position, find out who the delegates are and share your opinion. It could be extremely helpful in the selection process.
