——————————————————————————–

Coaches,

As a reminder, this year’s MITCA Track & Field clinic will be held at a NEW LOCATION.

We believe that you will be very pleased with the new venue, but with the change we would like to ask your help to make this transition work as well as possible for the whole organization.

In order to acquire the conference space that we need to conduct a large clinic such as ours, we have to guarantee that our attendees will rent a certain number of rooms by a certain date…otherwise we can incur significant additional costs beyond our negotiated terms.

We are asking coaches to please do your best to:

1. Try to book your rooms by the end of December.

2. Make sure to tell them you are with MITCA when you reserve your room.
If you book online, please use group code letters TRK.
    Fill in the check-in and check-out dates with the group code

Our deadlines and terms are a little different than they were before, so we would greatly appreciate if you could do your best to book your rooms as soon as possible.
