USATF Junior Olympic Meets
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! 

Notes 
  • The USA Track and Field (USATF) Junior Olympic series has prerequisites and qualifying standards.
  • Our Development and Middle School Meets are separate from the USATF meets; there is no relationship between Developmental, Middle School and USATF.
  • Unless otherwise noted, the Alpha Crush team registration fee covers the cost of membership fees and meet entry fees (but not travel expenses, massages or snacks.)
  • Alpha Crush does all the administrative work regarding USATF memberships and meet entries.
  • Parents are responsible for:
    • Completing and verifying the meet entries on our meet entry page
    • Providing age-verification documents when necessary for Junior Olympic competition
  • The dates, locations and information about each meet can be found on each meet's information page on this web site.
