Aug 13,2014(ISN) – LANGLEY – The 2014 Royal Canadian Legion Youth Track and Field Championships begin Friday August 15 in Langley, B.C., at McLeod Athletic Park. Hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary BC/Yukon Command, the Championships will see 701 athletes competing for national titles over three-days of competition.

  • Confirmed team entries 
  • Considered a stepping stone to the Olympic Games, the Legion’s interest in track and field extends to the early 1940’s with the World War II Foster Fathers programs, continuing in the 1950’s with support of the Canadian Olympic Training Program, national athlete clinics and coaching clinics. The success of these early programs resulted in the Legion’s continued commitment to Canadian youth by funding the current Legion National Youth Track and Field Championships since it’s renaming in 1977.
