Entry Information

The Junior Olympic program is a progressional series of meets consisting of preliminary, Association, Regional, and National meets.  As athletes advance upon performance at each level, they only need to submit an entry form at the first level of competition (i.e., an athlete cannot directly submit an entry form for the Regional competition; he/she must have competed and advanced at the Association meet; the entry form is then automatically forwarded to the next level).

National Championships Entry Info

The entry fee for the National Championship is $8 per individual, non-refundable, and must be submitted with the entry forms through your USATF Regional Coordinator at your Regional Junior Olympic Championship Meet. Entries cannot be accepted by any other method.

In the high school divisions, High School club division entry forms must also be accompanied by a letter from the High School Principal and/or Athletic Director, which contains name of the school; current year; and names of all runners being entered certifying that they are eligible to represent that high school. High School teams do not have to qualify through Association or Regional competitions; however, high school entry forms must be submitted through the appropriate Regional Coordinator no later than that Region's competition.

Birth dates submitted must be verified and stamped as such by either the Association Chairman or the Regional Coordinator. Entry forms not meeting all of these requirements will be deemed incomplete and will only be processed after all missing information is provided, along with an additional $10 incomplete entry fee. There are no late entries for this competition.

The first 20 individual finishers and the first three teams in each age division for both boys and girls in the regional competitions qualify for the National Championships. These numbers are fixed and no others may advance.
