USA Pentathlon is pleased to announce the launch of the 2011 Youth and Junior Regional Series. A five-state regional series for youth and juniors is set to kick off April 27-30, 2011, at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. This regional series, a first for USA Pentathlon, will provide instruction and competitive experience for young pentathletes in the United States. In addition, these competitions will allow Youth and Junior athletes the opportunity to earn points toward the selection of the USA Youth and Junior Teams which will ultimately represent the USA at the Youth and Junior World Championships in 2011.
The Series begins with the Youth and Junior Olympic Development camp April 27-29 and culminates with the first Youth and Junior Regional Series competition on April 30, both held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
The camp in April is a "National Development Camp". All interested athletes may attend. The competition will be a regional qualifier for Youth and Juniors but is open to all athletes.
