Selection Process For World Youth Team

USA Track & Field (USATF) will field a partial team to represent the United States at the 2015 IAAF World Youth Championships (the “Team”). The team size will be determined by USATF in its sole discretion, but will include no more than 41 athletes who meet the criteria listed below.

An athlete who is one of the two highest placing finishers in an event at the 2015 USATF World Youth Track & Field Trials (Trials), scheduled for June 30-July 1, 2015 in Lisle IL, will be considered for selection to the Team with these additional qualifications:

  1. He or she has met the qualifying standard and entry guidelines set by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) for the 2015 World Youth Championships. Please note that wind-aided marks in the 100m, 200m, 100m Hurdles, 110m Hurdles, Long Jump, and Triple Jump will not be accepted for purposes of meeting the qualifying standard, and all international qualifying standards must have been met during the period between October 1, 2014 andJuly 1, 2015.
  2. He or she is eligible to represent the USA in all levels of international competition based on the Competition Rules of USATF and the IAAF.
  3. He or she was born in 1998 or 1999 (age 16 or 17 by December 31, 2015).
  4. He or she presents to the team processing staff before 8:00 pm EST on July 1, 2015 his or her current passport valid until at least January 15, 2016 (or a copy thereof).

At the completion of the World Youth Trials, the Selection Committee will evaluate the performances of all athletes who meet the above criteria, and will, in its sole discretion, select up to 41 athletes from among this group. In addition to the order of finish at the Trials, the Selection Committee will consider fitness, injuries, conditioning, projected ability to finish in the top 8 at the 2015 IAAF World Youth Championships, and any other factors the Committee deems relevant or instructive.
