2021 USATF National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships Info

Due to the extenuating circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the country, Rule 306 Junior Olympics Program (found in 2021 USATF Competition Rules) cannot be followed in its entirety.  Therefore, the Youth Division, with support, and cooperation from the Association Executive Committee and endorsement of the National Office, has decided that for the competition year 2021, local Association and Regional Championship meets will not serve to qualify youth athletes into the National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championship in Jacksonville, Florida on July 26 - August 01, 2021.  


Although there will be no advancement requirements (Association or Region ), in an effort to preserve the integrity of the JOTF National Championship suggested "Guidelines of Participation" for direct entry into the 2021 USATF National Junior Olympic Championships will be provided shortly.  These guidelines will be posted on-line ( and on (registration site).  Athletes and coaches are encouraged to review these suggested “Guidelines for Participation”  when considering entry into this National Championship. 


USATF remains committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of our athletes, officials, volunteers, staff and guests while making every effort to resume offering our youth athletes an opportunity to compete in a safe and secure environment.
