Entry Information

This page contains entry information regarding the 2009 USA Youth Outdoor Track & Field Championships ONLY. There is a different entry process for the World Youth Trials.

Entry Process

  • Online is the only method of entry.
  • A 2009 USATF membership is required to enter online (please join online if you are not a member).
  • To enter the Championships, you will be required to provide your 2009 USATF membership number and password (click here to retrieve your password if you don't know it).
  • For entries close to the deadlines:  although we will make every reasonable effort, we cannot guarantee responses to requests for passwords. Please do not wait until the last minute to enter!
  • Note to club coaches: If an athlete will only be an additional relay alternate (i.e., the athlete is not entered in any individual events and is not entered as one of the four relay team members or two primary alternates), you must submit an individual entry for that athlete. Enter the athlete in the event called "Relay Roster Only"; the cost is $8. This athlete will then be eligible to run on any relay.
  • A Help Line is available for those athletes who need assistance with the entry process. For assistance, call the USATF National Office at 317-713-4695 during normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. ET Monday-Friday.
  • After completing your entry online, please fax a copy of your birth certificate or the information page of your passport to the USATF National Office at 800-833-1466.
