(PTFA) is a track and field program meant to enhance the sport of professional track and field for Non-Elite Open and Master Divisions.
(PTFA) realizes that the youth T&F clubs and educational institutions are the feeder core to Track and Field’s elite level, and our interest is not on them. We are, however, curious to know the status of the graduating classes of these groups who did not make it into World class competition.
