As a continuing effort to make USATF Youth Track & Field the BEST YOUTH PROGRAM in AMERICA, I am pound to announce the USATF National Youth Chair Award. Each year one of the four zones will give this award to the top Boys and Girls combined age group team champions at that zonal meet; (sub-bantam – Young Men/Woman). This award can only be used for one of our Outdoor National Championships:

· USATF Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships

· USATF Youth Athletics Championships

· USATF Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships

In order to win the award, the club must be registered with USATF.

This year’s award will be given to the Eastern Region Zone Meet held on March 7, 2009 at the New Balance Center. For more information, and to enter the event logon to http://www.youthusatf.org/eastzone09.html
