Athlete Selection Procedures

The 2015 U.S. Outdoor Track & Field Championships, to be held June 25th to 28th in Eugene, OR, will serve as the selection meet for the 2015 NACAC Senior Championships. The NACAC Senior Championships will be held on August 7th-9th, 2015 in San Juan, Costa Rica.

For each individual event on the 2015 NACAC Senior Championships program of events, up to two (2) athletes per event will select themselves for USATF’s NACAC Senior Championships Team (the “Team”) through head-to-head competition at the U.S. Outdoor Championships, provided that they finish in the top 8 in their event at the U.S. Outdoor Championships. In addition to athletes being selected in individual events, USATF will also select up to two (2) additional athletes for each relay team/pool (men’s and women’s 4 x 100 and 4x 400), with this selection to be based on competitive considerations.

The events that will be contested at the 2015 NACAC Senior Championships are:

Men’s Track: 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, 3000St, 5000, 10,000, 110H, 400H
Men’s Field: HJ, PV, LJ, TJ, SP, DT, HT, JT
Women’s Track: 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, 3000St, 5000, 10,000, 100H, 400H
Women’s Field: HJ, PV, LJ, TJ, SP, DT, HT, JT
Men’s Relays: 4x100, 4x400
Women’s Relays: 4x100, 4x400

Athletes will select themselves for a position on the Team based on the rank order of place finish among the top 8 place finishers in each individual event at the U.S. Outdoor Championships as follows:

  1. In all events at the U.S. Outdoor Championships, the rank order for selection will be based on the place finish in the final of that event.
  2. In each event, if an athlete declines to participate on the Team, USATF will offer that position to the next highest ranked individual, meeting all criteria, but not deeper than a top-8 finisher in that final.  This process will continue until the two positions for each event are filled.
  3. Team sign-up for the NACAC Senior Championships must be completed not later than 5:00pm Pacific Daylight Time on Sunday, June 28th.
  4. There are no qualifying standards for the 2015 NACAC Senior Championships.

Participation Age

  • Participants must be 16 years of age or older.  While athletes 18 years of age or older may compete in any event, male athletes who are 16 or 17 (born in 1998 or 1999) may not compete in the shot put, discus throw, hammer throw, javelin throw, 3,000 meter steeplechase and 10,000 meter events, and female athletes who are 16 or 17 (born in 1998 or 1999) may not compete in the 3,000 meter steeplechase and 10,000 meter events.
