As we embark upon a new year, let us begin 2018 by being involved with the USATF Florida Association and spreading the word about our organization.  USATF Florida is recognized by  USATF  as the local association governance body responsible for administering services to support and promote our sports: cross country, mountain-ultra-trail, race walking, road running, and track & field. USATF Florida acts as a service organization creating, conducting, and overseeing programs to provide opportunities for athletes of all ages to participate. Our members include: athletes of all ages, genders, and abilities; coaches and clubs; certified officials; local colleges and universities; and other organizations interested in supporting our sports.

We support event organizers, athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers. We also host our own programs to build support for the sport. If you’re an official, we have information about meets, training and certification. If you’re an athlete, we have clinics, access to clubs, information on upcoming events, and access to the latest training information. If you’re a club organizer, this is where your members can find information about the sport, and where others can find your club. And this is where you can come for insurance to cover your practices. If you’re an event organizer, we can help advertise your event, get a road course certified, and provide sanctioning so you have proper liability coverage. Whether you’re an Olympic contender, a middle-schooler or a retiree, whether your sport is Track and Field, Long Distance Running, Cross Country or Race Walking, we are here to support you.

If you have not already done so, do not forget to renew your USATF membership. We look forward to your continued support and involvement.

See you on the track, on the road or on the trail
