Before you spend millions of dollars to construct your new stadium, before
you hire a local architect who has only watched the Olympics and has no idea
how a track should REALLY work, please send
an e.mail to email@example.com and get the help you truly need.
I have seen so many schools spend six to seven figures to build their track
facilities . . . wrong. Consultants are hired regularly to guide the clueless
and you end up with a great football and soccer stadium surrounded by a track
frought with problems. It is my mission to stop this. You can check this site
to see my body of work. I am on the USATF National Facilities Committee, am
a USATF Officer and Certified Official, a California High School Starter and
obviously a learned fanatic who has spend hundreds of hours analyzing the various
facilities pictured here. Who better to tell them how to avoid the mistakes
of the past than me.
If you are the Track Coach or interested parents, let me tell you how this
works. Administrators won't listen to you, you are local, you are fanatical
about getting your facility done right. You are too close to the situation.
They need to hear from an outside expert to tell them what they need. So bring
me in to tell them what you need, for you. I'll provide that voice. Plus, seriously,
I will provide my expert guidance.
You are contemplating building one of the largest footprint solid objects
around. Not only that, the specifications for its flatness and size are beyond
the precision of most builders. And it is to host a sport that very few people
truly understand with the intimacy that I do. You want this to be around for
generations. Do it right from the start so you aren't sorry later.
