To participate in National Level Junior , Adult, or Master Meets "A" Standards have been developed to encourage great competition and to guide Athletes on a path to success.  ATFUSA sets the "A" standards for the Junior and Master Age groups.  USA Paralympics OR THE IPC set the standards for Open Competition.

IN 2017 ATFUSA HAS ESTABLISHED A "B" STANDARD FOR JUNIOR/MASTER TRACK & FIELD. 
IF AN ATHLETE HAS ACHIEVED AT LEAST ONE "A" STANDARD IN A FIELD OR TRACK EVENT AND HAS NOT ACHIEVED AN "A" STANDARD IN OTHER TRACK OR FIELD EVENTS, THEN, THE ATHLETE MAY COMPETE AT NATIONAL'S IN OTHER TRACK OR FIELD EVENTS WHICH A "B" STANDARD WAS ACHEIVED. 
EX: "A" IN A TRACK EVENT YOU CAN DO OTHER TRACK EVENTS WHICH YOU ACHEVIED A "B" STANDARD IN;  NOT A FIELD EVENT AND VICE VERSA.

THE "B" STANDARD IS 5% SLOWER (TRACK) / SHORTER (FIELD) THAN THE "A" STANDARD.
