Junior Pan Am Games


In light of the COVID-19 challenges in Colombia, Panam Sports, in collaboration with the Cali 2021 Organizing Committee, have decided to postpone the 2021 Junior Pan American Games for a second time.

The new dates are scheduled for November 25 - December 5, 2021.

The USOPC is working to gather information regarding updated qualification systems, updated schedules and other factors that will have an impact on your planning and preparation.

New dates for the registration deadlines have not been provided by Cali 2021, so the USOPC has asked that we proceed with the scheduled Games Registration due date of Friday, May 21, 2021 and they will plan to re-open Games Registration at a later date if Cali 2021 provides extended due dates.

We will continue to keep you posted as we receive more information on the details of these Games.
