Question

In Michigan, only the starter is required to be a registered official, yet most of the stuff that happens on the track is at the field events and the relay handoffs across the track, or on the turns that have to be properly judged.
How many registered officials are required in other states?

In OH it depends. At the dual meets it is one or two registered officials. One to start, one to help the clerk and keep an eye on other things.

For your larger meets, and certainly by state time everyone working is licensed, except for people pulling tapes in FE or replacing the bars.

Quite honestly I was surprised. When I was in IN you were lucky to have one licensed person, here they are all over.

I really like the idea of at least two. One to start and the other to watch for garbage.
Then, maybe a third to float the Fields.
Thanks, Brian.

ref5678,
At our State Cross Country meet, I think we had 53 registered officials on the course.

Can't speak for the entire state (NY) as each chapter negotiates with their respective section as to how many officials are assigned to a meet.
My section uses 4 officials at dual meets (varsity and/or modified). Except for the Starter and Finish Judge positions, the home coaches request where the other two officials will be placed and they will fill in with assistants at the other spots.

We'll use anywhere from 16 to 23 officials at the large weekend meets or league championships. All field events are covered by one or more officials at those meets. All relay zones are covered by field event officials since the field events are usually over by that time they are run.

Do not recall how Cross Country meets are handled.

well according to the IHSA website and the terms and conditions for the upcoming season. Any person starting a not- fat(fully automatic timing system) during sectionals or state must be an IHSA licensed track and field official.
