The VA Showcase Presented By The US Air Force 2021

Virginia Beach, VA

Meet Information

Online Registration Instructions



WATCH LIVE ON FLOTRACK!

The VA Showcase is simply the best meet in the entire nation and emblematic of what track & field is. It is a meet both for the ELITE and EVERY athlete by having both "Invitational" and regular events.

In four years this invitational has seen 10 NATIONAL RECORDS, 4 U20 WORLD RECORDS, and a staggering 71 US #1 performances. The most important statistic though is how many athletes PR at this event. National Records are great but what makes this meet the best is seeing all athletes set a personal best in front of a loud and cheering crowd.

Now at the brand new Virginia Beach Sports Center this meet will go to new heights! Please read registration guidelines closely to make sure you are entering the meet correctly. 

NEW IN 2021Due to the uncertainty of sanctioning and out of abundance of caution to make sure teams/athletes are not put in a tough spot to choose between eligibility and competing at this meet we have decided to make the entire meet club sanctioned at this time. Similarly to NSAF's Indoor Nationals, teams can only enter as clubs or unattached. If there is a change to this and we are able to offer high school sponsored competition we will post that updated information here. 

When entering this meet you will need to choose a division. Please choose club if you will be competing unattached or as a part of a club. 

PLEASE NOTE: The VHSL/NFHS has not sanctioned this event and likely will not sanction it, pending no changes, this meet will be entirely club sanctioned for 2021. Press Release on VHSL not sanctioning any sports for 2020-21.

Registration on MileSplit is only for high school aged competitors. All other age groups can sign-up on CoachO.

Sanctioning

THIS MEET IS ONLY CLUB SANCTIONED AT THIS TIME, YOU CANNOT COMPETE IN IT AND REPRESENT A SCHOOL, YOU MUST REPRESENT (INCLUDING UNIFORMS) A CLUB TEAM!





Meet management is also excited to announce this meet being a NSAF Select Meet. For more information about the NSAF and entry into the National Championship, see their website here!

Invitational Events

These events include everything except the 4x800 which will be run right before the start of Saturday's Invitational events. Normal timed finals that are run fast to slow.

Invitational events will be the top 10-15 or top flight of athletes entered into each event. These events will be run off at the exact time listed on the time schedule. In events where there are multiple sections the event will run slow to fast and in distance races have the top seed on the far outside.

In the 4x200 and 300 we will be running lanes 3-6. Seeding for lanes will be done by meet management and based on a combination of current season bests and realistic predictions of what someone could run if they do not have a time. Preference of lanes for lane races on the oval are 4-5-6-3-2-1.
