Adaptive Track & Field USA

Setting the standards and records
for adaptive athletes in the USA

Adaptive Track & Field USA (ATFUSA) is a 40 year old Texas based 501(c) 3 organization that was formed to support Adaptive Track & Field and Adaptive Road Racing in the USA. 
Until 2000,  ATFUSA was the National Governing Body (NGB) for Wheelchair Track and Field and Road Racing in the USA.  In 2002, the United States Olympic Committee became the National Paralympic Committee and U.S. Paralympics became the NGB for Para (all disabilities) Athletics (Track and Field) in the USA.

ATFUSA's mission since 2002 has been to support and to promote community based adaptive track and field and road racing in the USA (for all World Para Athletics defined disability classifications)  and to serve as the NGB for Juniors under 14 (U14) and Masters age groups 35, 50, 60 (not controlled by US Paralympics). 

For these age groups ATFUSA:
- Sanction track & field meets,
- Sanction wheelchair road races,
- Sets the rules of the sport,
- Keep the records (for all age groups U7 through Master) , and
- Sets Standards for entry into our junior and non-elite open/master national championships). 

ATFUSA has a synergistic relationship with Adaptive Sports USA.  In this partnership Adaptive Sports USA can sanction track and field meets when they are run in a multi-sport competition.
