Prepared by the BCJD Committee
with the assistance of BC Athletics
and the BC Officials Committee.

Revised January 2009

Foreword

The idea of an information manual for BC Junior Development [BCJD] track meet organizers has been the dream of the Junior Development Committee for many years. This enormous task became reality when Diana Hollefreund took on this commitment. By sorting through previous manuals and minutes of meetings from 1985 to 1996, Diana came up with a first draft. With input from the members of the past and present JD Committees listed below who contributed information and suggestions, Diana has revised the original draft many times.

Through this manual and the BC Athletics Record, we [the JD Committee] hope that all Junior Development clubs will find these guidelines helpful in the implementation of their Junior Development programs and in organizing successful Junior Development meets.

Once again a big thank you to Diana Hollefreund.

Sincerely,
Dawn Copping
Chair Junior Development Committee
