  • Provide recommendations to the AW Pathways Development Coordinator regarding the promotion of “competition programming" throughout the various state-wide athletics competitions; 
  • To make recommendations on State Championships standards and procedures; and
  • To review competition related areas referred by the Board for investigation analysis, and to provide recommendations to the Board on these matters.
