2005 USA Youth Outdoor Track & Field Championships
June 28 - July 3, 2005
The 2005 USA Youth Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be conducted in Knoxville, Tenn., on the campus of the University of Tennessee. Come experience the spirit of Champions in Knoxville, Tennessee!
Last year's competition was held in Baltimore, MD. More than 200 USATF member clubs signed up for the competition. This year's Youth Championships will prove to be even more exciting for athletes, coaches, family members and spectators alike!
The USA Youth Outdoor Track & Field Championships (Youth Athletics) 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!
The meet is a national competition with entry based upon qualifying standards for each event. The Youth Championships have the same age divisions as the USATF Junior Olympic program: Bantam (10 and under), Midget (11-12), Youth (13-14), Intermediate (15-16) and Young Men/Women (17-18). The Youth Championships are also scored for team championships in all age divisions, so it is a popular competition for clubs around the country.
The Knoxville Tourism & Sports Corporation, the University of Tennessee, and the USA Track & Field Tennessee Association are honored to host this event. Good luck to each and every one!
