2003 National Youth Athletics Championships
July 2-6, 2003
The 2003 Youth Athletics return to Buffalo, site of the 2000 USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships.
Close to 3,000 athletes were on hand for last summer's meet in Miami, FL, with the top three teams honored in all 10 age divisions. More than 200 USATF member clubs signed up for the competition, and they were not disappointed. The five days in Miami were highlighted by spirited competition - and camaraderie - at all levels.
This year's competition will prove to be just as exciting for athletes, coaches, family members and spectators alike! Youth Championships is more than competition, though, it's also fun! And, regardless of whether young athletes achieve a personal best, win a medal, or earn a shot at international competition, they will certainly experience a first-class competition and have the opportunity to make new friends - and a lifetime of memories!
This year's meet will also be the final tune-up for Team USA before they depart for Sherbrooke, Canada, and the July 9-13 IAAF World Youth Track & Field Championships.
