Qualifying for the National JO TF Championships

How to Qualify for the National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships

  • If the Pacific Association is hosting the National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships, the Regional JO TF Meet and Regional JO Combined Events Championships are the only meets needed for PA youth to advance to the National JO.
  • If the Pacific Association is NOT hosting the National Junior Olympic Championships, PA youths must advance to the regional meet by qualifying at the USATF Pacific Championships with placement in the top 8.
  • Youth must achieve a top 5 mark in their TF event(s) at the Regional TF Meet or a top 2 mark at the Regional Combined Meet in order to advance to the National JOs as long as the marks meet the Combined Events Standards.
