Athletics is divided into three disciplines: track events (including sprints, middle- and long-distance running and relays), field events (including javelin, discus, shot put, high jump, long jump, and triple jump), and cross country running.
The NAIG Athletics competition will consist of both male and female individual and team relay events for:
- 19U (2001 – 2003)
- 16U (2004 – 2006)
- 14U (2006 – 2008)
Team Ontario will be selecting up to eight (8) male and eight (8) female athletes for each age category. An athlete is allowed to compete in four events plus two (2) relays. Cross country counts as one of the four events.
For each age category, each contingent has a maximum of 3 athletes per individual event.
