NBNI Weekend is here!!!

The 18th New Balance Nationals Indoor (NBNI), our renowned championships for the country’s best prep track and field athletes, will again be held at the Fort Washington Armory in New York City (Washington Heights), Friday-Sunday, March 10-12, 2017.  More than 3,600 athletes from more than 40 states and Canadian provinces competed with us last year and we are expecting similar numbers this weekend -- looking to run, hurdle, jump, throw and walk their way to titles in 46 boys’ and girls’ Championship events, as well as 40 more Emerging Elite and Freshman events.

Special thanks to our friends at New Balance -- the best partners we could hope for -- for again working with us to make these three days the best ever in prep indoor T&F; to Eastbay, our Presenting Sponsor; and all of the staff, officials and volunteers who work tirelessly with the NSAF here at NBNI every year.  This is our 7th indoor nationals with New Balance and the 34th such meet NSAF founders Jim Spier and the late Mike Byrnes have been involved with since 1983.
