The 40th USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships will be held at Hughes Stadium on the campus of Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland. The USATF Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships is the most visible youth athletic development program in the world. Many of today's Olympic stars began their track and field careers competing in the USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships.

Over 6,000 athletes are expected to converge on Baltimore for the USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships. Entry for this championship is based on athlete performances at preliminary, Association, and Regional levels of the 2006 USATF Junior Olympic Program. Competition takes place in five two-year age divisions, with athletes generally falling between the ages of 8 and 18.

With a seating capacity of over 14,000, Hughes Stadium has hosted numerous youth and collegiate track and field championships, including the 2004 USA Youth Outdoor Track & Field Championships, and seen many records broken since its construction in 2000.

In addition, this year's meet will serve as one of the selection pool competitions for the 2007 IAAF World Youth Championships in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

American's next generation of track and field stars will be competing throughout the summer and will take center stage at the national championships in Baltimore. USATF and event host Morgan State University hope that you will join in on the excitement.
