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. Para Track & Field  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) for Juniors under 14 (U14) U23, and the  Masters age groups 35, 50, 60 (not controlled by US Paralympics or
WPA ). 

For these age groups ATFUSA:
- Sanction Para track & field meets,
- Sanction wheelchair road races,
- Set the rules of the sport for the U14, U23  and the Master age groups,
- Keep the records (for all age groups U7 through Master)
- Set the Standards for entry into our junior (The Move United Junior Nationals)
  and non-elite open/master national championships. 
- Provide Tips and Techniques. and clinics  for Coaches and Athletes to better
   our Sport.

ATFUSA has a synergistic relationship with Move United (MU).  In this partnership MU can sanction track and field meets when they are primarilly run in a multi-sport competition and ATFUSA sets the rules/standards  and runs the Athletics competitions on Move United's Competition Committee.
