Age Divisions & Events

Youth competitions typically take place in two-year age divisions. These age divisions provide young athletes the opportunity to compete with other athletes of similar ability. The age divisions for competition year 2017 are as follows:

Age Division Year of Birth
7 – 8
9 – 10
11 – 12 2005-2006
13 – 14
15 – 16 2001-2002
17 – 18

* Per USATF Rule 300.1 (c) “Athletes must be at least seven (7) years of age on December 31 of the current year to compete at the Youth Athletics or Junior Olympic National Championships.”

** Athletes who are still 18 through the final day of the USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships are eligible to compete in the 17-18 age divisions through that meet.

A few seasons ago (2011) for our Jaguar meets we introduced something new, pre-registering athletes prior to the meet. This saves our timing & results crew hours of work prior to and after the meet. Last year we had the coaches helping out with this, but it took valuable practice time away from the athletes.

So parents we need your help.

Please help your younger athletes fill out their form (and one for yourself to refer to on meet day) and turn them into their coaches (or parents can bring them to the shed) at practice. Only one relay card is needed per team, so if your athlete is doing a relay just have them coordinate with the other 3 runners to fill out just one card. Remember relay teams need to be ‘all boy’ or ‘all girl’ and all the same age division. (Forms below)

If for some reason you cannot turn in your event slip at one of the practices prior to the meet, please email the same info from your athlete(s) event slip to by 6pm on the Friday prior to the meet.

New for 2014, SKTFC club members who do not preregister will need to pay $10 for day of meet registration.
