Oregon Middle School Meet of Champions
Thursday May 23, 2019
The Oregon Middle School Meet of Champions is one of the biggest and certainly the most competitive middle school track and field meet in Oregon. Last year, 600 athletes from 150 teams contested 28 track and field events. Now in its 9th year, Linus Pauling MS will again host the meet at Spartan Stadium at Corvallis HS. The meet lasts from approximately 9:30-4:30, but most volunteer positions last about two hours.
While maintaining a friendly and inclusive atmosphere, we strive to run a meet with the highest quality officiating. We are seeking officials in the long jump, high jump, discus, shot put, and javelin. We would prefer officials available to officiate both prelims in the morning and finals early in the afternoon. We will provide a small stipend to qualified officials.
There are many jobs available for someone with little experience, from selling shirts to welcoming athletes to the stadium. For these jobs, you need to be comfortable working with people, but we can easily train you on the details.
If you are able to work at the meet, please use 2019 Oregon MOC Signup to officially sign up for your desired job/time slot. Please leave a note in the comments section if you are USATF certified.
If you have questions, email meet director Coulter Rose.
