More than a Competition!

Youth meets and races are often more than competition; They teach life-lessons such as Sportsmanship, Commitment Leadership, and Team Building. They are also fun! Regardless of whether young athletes achieve a personal best, win a medal, or earn a shot at international competition, they will have the opportunity to make new friends and a lifetime of memories!
