After nearly two years of planning and hard work, Lawrence, Kansas and the Missouri Valley Association will welcome the best youth track and field athletes in the United States, at  the USA Track and Field Junior Olympic Championships.  The competition, which was the starting point for many of America’s great Olympians, will be held on the University of Kansas’ state of the art track facility known as Rock Chalk Park, July 24-30, 2017.  Qualification for this meet will take place at the Region 16 Track and Field championships, July 9-12, 2017, in Joplin, Missouri, unless a waiver has been properly applied for and approved.  “There is nothing like the USATF JO’s in any sport, or in any country, and the Missouri Valley Association is proud to be part of it,” said Carma Kendell, president of the local USATF association.
