The Chapel Hill / Carrboro Pacers is a 503(c) non-profit organization which is a member in good standing of the USA Track and Field Association.
Today's youth athletes are tomorrow's
champions! As the #1 high school and junior high school
participatory sport, track & field, long distance
running, and race walking offer a variety of competitive
and fitness opportunities. Youth competitions takes
place in 2-year age divisions, from 10 & under through
Youth meets and races are often more than competition--they're also fun! And, regardless of whether young athletes achieve a personal best, win a medal, or earn a shot at international competition, they'll have the opportunity to make new friends--and a lifetime of memories! USATF's largest youth program is the Junior Olympics, through which nearly 70,000 youth athletes compete each year in the Track & Field and Cross Country championships.
On the non-competitive side, the Pacers espouses USATF's "Win With Integrity" program, reflecting the importance of fitness, a healthy lifestyle, living with integrity--including a drug-free life--and setting goals. To see the pledge, visit the "Win With Integrity Pledge."
