Welcome to the Web Site.  This site was established on Tuesday, December 6, 2005.  Please visit often to view the progress of it's development and for updated information.

The sport of Track and Field at both the High School and Middle School levels is in need of individuals interested in Officiating.  The ATOM Association strongly supports and encourages new officials to join both ATOM and the MHSAA.  ATOM members are usually willing to mentor and help anyone that is interested in becoming a Track and Field Official.  If at a Track and Field meet, simply approach an ATOM Official and begin a conversation.

An ATOM Membership Invoice Application is available at the top of the "ATOM Newsletter" page in PDF format and is printable for anyone interested in becoming a member.
