·Thank you to all the officials who worked another very tough SS Twilight meet. Miserable conditions for the second year in a row and long meet 2 - 10:15 pm Professionalism was exemplary by ALL MTFOA under very difficult conditions.

In 1982, the Bay State Games Track & Field competition was created to provide opportunities for participants from across Massachusetts of all ages and abilities to compete in an Olympic style athletic festival. Since it’s inception, Track & Field Officials from Eastern, Central and Western Massachusetts have supported Bay State Games by volunteering their time to officiate at our competition.
Bay State Games will celebrate their 42nd year in 2024. The track event will be a finals only meet to be held on Saturday, July 20 at Regis College in Weston. There are male and female divisions for middle school, high school, open and masters. 

We greatly appreciate the past support from members of the Massachusetts Track & Field Officials community who have volunteered their time at Bay State Games.

As we prepare for 2024, we would like to invite you to help out again this year.
An on-line sign up system has been created.  Please paste the link below into your browser and fill out the form with your availability by June 15. https://app.racereach.com/form/58927 

If you do not have access to a computer but would still like to volunteer, please call 781-932-6555 and we can take your information. Officials will be provided with parking, lunch and other amenities for their involvement. We are very excited to announce that due to the support of Marathon Sports, the Bay State Games jacket will return in 2024 and all track officials will receive a jacket for their involvement.

Thank you again to all the track & field officials across Massachusetts who have supported Bay State Games. We look forward to seeing you again this year. If you have questions, please contact Kevin Cummings at (781) 932-6555 or email kevin@baystategames.org

Rules updates

Two rules revisions involving the competitor’s uniform, along with procedural changes in several field events designed to reduce the risk of injury, highlight rules changes in high school track and field and cross country for the 2022 season.

Updates on concussions

While concussions and suspected head injuries occur only occasionally in track and field, they do happen. Although MIAA rules do not specifically indicate a role for officials, they should continue the best practice of ensuring that the event is stopped if an athlete is suspected of suffering a head injury and should facilitate the call for and access for medical personnel. For more information, updates on rules and resources, please see Concussions.
