Clarification on meets for Junior Olympic qualifiers.

There are 2 organizations that have Junior Olympics, AAU and USATF.

For AAU, you MUST compete in ONE of the following meets June 3 El Dorado KS or June 10 Independence MO in order to qualify for the regional Junior Olympic qualifier that is held in Joplin on June 22-25. If you qualify for the Junior Olympics, by placing in top 5 at Joplin meet, the AAU JO will be held in Detroit MI. July 25-Aug 5.

For USATF, there is not a mandatory meet to participate at the regional Junior Olympic qualifier which is in Joplin July 6-9. If you place in top 5 at Joplin meet then the USATF JO will be in Lawrence KS July 23-30

I hope this helps! We plan on competing in both sanctions but it's up to the parents which one to do or both. The opportunity to do both is practical this year and get in on great competition. If you qualify AAU/USATF, then go to which JO suits your family the best, or both!
