Our Mission: "To train young athletes to run competitively at all distances and compete successfully in the technical field events; in the principles of track and field; and in the discipline of cross country while providing an athletic and educational experience."
Since 1976, South Central Athletic Association (SCAA) has offered a nationally recognized, track & field and running program for student-athletes from ages 7 - 18. Our goal is to improve individual athletic performances, provide athletes with national exposure, establish a training regimen to prepare athletes for college, provide access to academic tutoring in mathematics, science language arts, the SAT exam and to build a strong scholastic foundation for success in college. Preparation is one of the keys to success and SCAA will prepare all student athletes for the challenge life presents.
SCAA provides athletes an opportunity to experience junior world class competition. The outdoor track season begins in March and concludes with the last local developmental track meet in June. The competitive season offers an exciting number of local meets held throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as out-of-town trips which emphasize sports and cultural experiences enhancing the lives of athletes, like the the Junior Olympic National competition.
The top eight athletes in each event from the Association Finals meet automatically advance to Regionals and the top five from Regionals qualify for Nationals. This season, the Association and Regionalsmeetswill be held in Seattle/Tacoma,WA area, venue TBD and the Junior Olympic National Meet will be held July 24-July 31 in Lawrence, KS at Rock Chalk Park. An athlete must compete and qualify at each level in order to move to the next round. Over 6,000 top class athletes attend the J.O.
