2019

If you want a great introduction to Masters sports competition, you should attend one of the Masters National Championship events in 2019. Even if the sport is not "your sport", the dedication, determination, and enjoyment these athletes exhibit are infectious. The following table lists selected national championship events in various sports for 2019.

There are many more "National Championships" than I have included here. USA Track & Field alone lists more than 50 events. However, this sample should get you started. For more information on any event, check the sponsoring organizations website. In keeping with the scope of this website, I have included only those events that offer competitive age-group classes for men and women over 40.
