AAU Track & Field Day
June 1st

Amateur Athletic Union Announces June 1st as Inaugural National AAU Track and Field Day

Inaugural celebration to recognize the beginning of district championship season for more than 50,000 AAU Track and Field athletes

More than 50,000 track and field athletes across the country begin their road to AAU Junior Olympic Games with the start of district championship season on June 1 every year. As such, the AAU will begin recognizing that date as National AAU Track and Field Day with the inaugural celebration taking place this June 1, 2017.

"More than anything, National AAU Track and Field Day gives us an opportunity to stop and recognize all of our incredible athletes academic and athletic achievements," said Charles Oliver, AAU Track & Field National Chair. "It also allows us to say thanks to moms, dads, grandparents, coaches, teachers, sponsors, and the like."

Athletes across the nation will show their AAU pride by dawning their favorite AAU gear. Members will have an opportunity to earn special giveaways through contests held via social media using the hashtag #AAUTrackDay. The winners will also receive a special recognition at the AAU Junior Olympic Games in Detroit, Michigan should they be in attendance.

"It's said that 'it takes a village to raise a child'," said Oliver. "We want everyone to wear their favorite AAU gear on June 1 to show how many people are a part of the 'AAU village' and that we are all proud of our involvement within the organization."

Mark your calendars now and join us for the Inaugural National AAU Track and Field Day on June 1, 2017.
