More than 50,000 track and field athletes across the country begin their road to AAU Junior Olympic Games with the start of district championship season on June 1 every year. As such, the AAU will begin recognizing that date as National AAU Track and Field Day with the inaugural celebration taking place in 2017.

“More than anything, National AAU Track and Field Day gives us an opportunity to stop and recognize all of our incredible athletes,” said Charles Oliver, AAU Athletics National Chair. “We look forward to launching this event in 2017 and really showing our appreciation for the entire AAU Track and Field community.”

Athletes across the nation will show their AAU pride by dawning their favorite AAU garb. Members will have an opportunity to earn special giveaways through contests held via social media.

Mark your calendars now and join us for the inaugural National AAU Track and Field Day on June 1, 2017.
