Instructions for Field Events Records Application

All USATF rules must be followed. For World Records, all WMA rules must also be followed.  PRINT clearly in all fields (unless a signature is requested).  Though some fields are not required, every attempt should be made to complete all fields to ratify the record expeditiously. Most fields are self-explanatory, but some guidelines are below.

  1. ATHLETE INFORMATION:  Contact information is critical. More than 1 phone number or email address may be provided. Club is optional.
  2. DESCRIPTION OF RECORD:  If it is a World record, click that box. Otherwise, click the American box. The Age Group should be a multiple of 5, i.e., 35, 40, etc. The field event should identify the athletic event the record was set in, i.e., Weight Throw or Pole Vault. The meet must be sanctioned by USATF, a member organization of USATF or another member Federation of IAAF.
  3. FIELD JUDGE CERTIFICATION: Three different judges must complete this. When you become a USATF Official, you are assigned a unique Official’s certification number, and all officials signing this form must provide that number.
  4. IMPLEMENT CERTIFICATION: This section is required for all throwing events. The officially recorded implement weight must be recorded here.
  5. WIND GAUGE CERTIFICATION: This section is required for the outdoor long jump and triple jump.
  6. Self Explanatory
  7. All documentation may be submitted electronically.  You can take a high resolution picture using your phone of the application, birth certificate, etc., and email them to the USATF Masters TF Records Chair. The meet program & results may be digital (or on a website). Provide a copy of your Passport or Birth Certificate (passport not acceptable for World Records).
