OSAA responds to the idea of a state 4x800
Brad Garrett, Assistant Executive Director of the OSAA, sent a helpful email explaining the process that might
be followed to introduce a new event to the state track and field meet. To summarize:
- "Plant the seed and watch it grow."
- Get reaction and a vote from coaches around the state. This will involve bringing
a proposal to the Oregon Coaches Athletic Association and receiving this group's
Executive Board approval.
- Submit the proposal to the OSAA Executive Board or through the OSAA Championship
Committee. OSAA approval is unlikely without the backing of coaches.
