I was curious what the rules/laws are about Track and Fields at public colleges. I have heard that if it is a public University, there are laws that prevent them from closing the track to the public. Of course if they are using it, they can close it to the public, but if a scheduled practice is not taking place, they can't kicked people off it. Where is the law pertaining to this?
I emailed my current college about this, and I got mixed responses from different coaches. Everyone told me practice was from 2 to 5. The contradiction comes when it is open to the public. One told me any other time, the track is open to the public. The other one told me they want to change this policy in a few months from now. The tone I got is they want to close it off to the public. I don't think they can do that though, seeing there is no equivalent track set up for the public.
Anyways, anyone know the laws/rules on this? Thanks for any information.
