2009 What a Year

Dear Youth Track & Field Community,

What a summer we had this year in Youth Track & Field. This was one of the most exciting years we have experience in our program ever. By having a great Youth meet in Michigan, our youth athletes winning the medal count in Italy, and Greensboro being one of the largest Junior Olympic meets ever in USATF, I am excited about the future of our program and sport. Over 11 cities will be bidding for one of our 3 National Championship meets at the Convention in December, and in the next couple of months we will be in Reno for our Junior Olympic XC meet.I am sure we will be in store for a treat when we get there.

Attached you will find a link to some of the highlights of our youth meet in Michigan. If you have any highlights from this season, please feel free to up load your highlights to: http://youth-usatf.youthrunner.com.

Thanks to everyone who voted for our 2009 Youth Athlete of the Year. The results will be release in the next couple weeks. Stay tuned. . Lionel Leach
