USATF Hershey Youth Outdoor Championships
Benedictine University - Lisle, IL
June 30- July 5, 2015
Last year's competition was held in Bloomington, IN and attracted youth athletes from across the country. The 2015 USATF Hershey Youth Outdoor Championships will be even more exciting for athletes, coaches, family members and spectators alike! This event typically produces several youth national records and is the only track & field competition that also awards team championships in every age division!
The USATF Hershey Youth Outdoor Championships is more than a competition--it is also about having fun! Regardless of whether young athletes achieve a personal best or win a medal, they will experience a first-class competition and have the opportunity to make new friends--and a lifetime of memories.
This year the meet will also be held in conjunction with the World Youth Trials Meet, where the top athletes from ages 16-17 have a chance to make Team USA and compete at the World Youth Championships in Cali, Colombia.
