@edwardjthompson It is my assumption then during the state series that officials will not be coaches whose teams are participating? From personal experience I could just see disaster during field events if coaches are working field events in an official capacity.

@CoachGCracker You are correct. In state series competition, it would not be appropriate for coaches to officiate competition where their teams are involved. We'd suggest, for example, that coaches officiate a classification other than their own and coaches from the other classes do likewise.
