USATF National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships

posted on June 13, 2018 by C L

With roots tracing back to Ancient Greece, track & field is the centerpiece of the Olympic Games. From the 100 meter dash to the discus throw, athletes set new standards for excellence in sport. USATF’s Junior Olympic Track & Field program is a wellspring of this excellence. Dating back to the mid-1960’s, the USATF Junior Olympic program is the most visible youth athlete developmental program in the world. Nearly 70,000 youth athletes compete each year in the Junior Olympic Track & Field program.

America’s next generation of track & field stars compete throughout the summer–and over 6,000 of these athletes qualify for the USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships held during the last week of July. Entry for the national championship is based on athlete performances at preliminary, Association, and Regional levels.

The event will be held July 23-29, 2018 at North Carolina A&T University.
