Junior Olympics Program

*** UPDATED JULY 2014 - REGION I RESULTS POSTED ***.

The USATF Junior Olympic program is an age group competition program held in track & field and cross country. Competition is held in two year age groups, based on year of birth.

*** CROSS COUNTRY INFO FOLLOWS TRACK AND FIELD BELOW ***.

Age divisions are now named for athlete age as of December 31


Age Division Birth Range for 2014
7-8 (was Sub-Bantam) Born 2006-2007
9-10 (was Bantam) Born 2004-2005
11-12 (was Midget) Born 2002-2003
13-14 (was Youth) Born 2000-2001
15-16 (was Intermediate) Born 1998-1999
17-18 (was Young Men/Women) Born 1996-1997

*** Remember Age Division is as of December 31 ***.

Also, for the 2014 track & field meet only, athletes born July 28, 1995 and later may also compete in the Young Men/Women division (this is not applicable in cross country). Many other youth meets use this age group format for their meets to maintain consistancy.

7-8 (Sub-Bantam) under was added by National in 2011. 8 and under may NOT participate in 9-10 competition either as individuals or as relay or XC team members.

Advancement up the ladder is by place.

Development meets are held at several sites around the association. These meets are open to all with no qualifying standards, and may have a limited schedule of events or age divisions. Their purpose is to provide opportunities for young athletes to compete. (Contact the office if you are interested in hosting a preliminary meet.)

New England association meets are open to all youth in the states of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Region I is made up of the following associations: New England, Connecticut, Maine, Adirondack (NY), New York (NY), and Long Island (NY). The Region I Championship site rotates among the associations, with the current rotation noted below. Youth may ONLY compete in their association of residency.

The National Youth Athletics Meet is held using the same age groupings, is open to all with no preliminary meets, but does have entry standards or guidelines. The level of competition generally matches the JO meet.
