Youth Track & Field, Cross Country, Race Walking

 

Scenes of a few of the hundreds of USATF Pacific Youth who qualified for and competed at the 2016 USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships, held in Sacramento, CA.

Today’s youth athletes are tomorrow’s champions! As the #1 youth participatory sport, every child competes alongside their peers in 2-year age divisions, from 8 & younger up to 18. Track & Field and Race Walking events take place in the spring and summer; Cross Country events are held in the Fall. They offer a variety of both competitive and fitness opportunities and lead up to regional, national and even international competitions. It is the only way to participate in USA Track & Field’s Junior Olympic program.

 

The Pacific Association is the largest youth program Northern California, with nearly 4,000 young athletes competing each year. Many of America’s top collegiate athletes began as youth athletes, including stars such as Ashton Purvis, Amber Purvis, Javis Best, Jordan Hasay and Olympians such as Jeremy Wariner, Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards, and Lauryn Williams.
