Just four weeks until NSAF USA Meet of Champions at Myrtle Beach, SC!

The details are set and the countdown is on for the new NSAF USA Meet of Champions at Myrtle Beach, SC! We’re looking forward to great anticipation to seeing everyone at the outstanding Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium in Myrtle Beach, Thursday-Sunday, March 25-28, 2021. We are thrilled to be working with, AthleticNET, The Garrett Companies and our newest partners from the City of Myrtle Beach and Visit Myrtle Beach! Everything you need is at

Most importantly, we have extensive COVID-19 protocols in place to create the safest and healthiest experience possible. All coaches, athletes, spectators, and officials will be required to show a negative COVID-19 test prior to entering the event. We are also limiting attendees for each session at the spacious Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium (15-acre facility), well within local and state mandates, as well as requiring masks. You can read all of our COVID-19 protocols HERE.

The USATF-sanctioned competition will include an extensive schedule of Championship, Emerging Elite, Freshman and Middle School events, similar to the NSAF’s most recent Outdoor Nationals in 2019. The NSAF has made the Middle School and Freshman divisions more accessible by eliminating entry standards for those events, while still offering high-level competition. The entry limit for most events is 24 athletes or relay teams, with acceptances on a first-come, first-serve basis.
