Regulations

Those clubs that have youth involved in the Junior Olympic program in Montana are reminded of several requirements for J.O. events.
  1. All participants in J.O. state meets must have a USA TRACK & FIELD membership card.

  2. Entry into state, regional and national competition requires a copy of a birth certificate (or proof of age) with meet application. Be sure each athlete submits a copy, not an original, and that a copy is attached to entry forms at each level of competition (see #3).

  3. In 1994, legislation was passed to enable the state membership chair to verify proof of age if a birth certificate is submitted with individual membership applications. New membership cards now have a place for age verification. This verification eliminates the need for birth certificates at each level of competition, but does not eliminate the need for a copy of the membership card to enter events.

  4. Junior Olympic competition is a step-wise qualification process. Qualification must first be made at the state level to go on to regional level, and regional level completed before an athlete can go on to nationals. The number of advancers at each level varies with the level of competition (i.e. state or regional) and the sport (i.e. track & field or cross country). The state youth chairmen, or the state membership chair, can answer questions on these programs. Contact the state office for the current chairman of youth athletics and information on the program.
