What do we mean by the "competitive season?" After all, in the middle school and developmental meets we compete against other teams and athletes.

We refer to the series of USA Track and Field (USATF) Junior Olympic meets as the competitive season. There are prerequisites and qualifying standards (described below.) 

In the competitive season the "pressure" increases a bit, but not too much. 

Remember that athletes are not required to compete, though we encourage them to do so!
