From March 1 - June 13 all track & field clubs are invited to compete in the virtual competition. Coaches will update marks weekly to see how their squad ranks against state, regional, and national competition. Upon completion of the virtual competition, the top club in each of eight regions will automatically qualify for Nike Track Nationals competition in Eugene, Oregon on July 2, and the next four highest scoring clubs from any region will round out the twelve team field.
This is the first ever national championship competition to name the best high school track and field program in the United States.
With the goal of crowing a true national track and field champion, Nike Track Nationals consists of a four-month virtual competition that will select the top 12 boys and top 12 girls programs to compete at legendary Hayward Field for the Nike Track National Title the night before the Prefontaine Classic.
Nike Track Nationals is for young high school aged runners as a way to recognize the unique and diverse athletic abilities it takes to make up a winning team.
Clubs will compete in ten track and field events including: 100m, 110/100m Hurdles, 400m, 800m, Mile, Long Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault, Shot Put, Discus Throw. Each team is allowed to enter their top mark for each event, with a two-event maximum per individual athlete. Those marks will then be scored in decathlon fashion with performance marks awarded a point score. Although competition consists of ten events, the lowest scoring event will be dropped, making the total score the sum of their best nine events. The highest score takes homes the crown.
