New Balance Indoor HS National Championship on Tap


 
 

One
high school track & field championship meet created by
trio of partners New Balance, National Scholastic Sports
Foundation and the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory


BOSTON – (December 8, 2010) – Global athletic leader New Balance has announced an official multi-year partnership with the National Scholastic Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory in New York City for the New Balance Indoor Nationals.
The event will bring together the best indoor track and field
high school athletes from across the country for a weekend of
intense competition.


“New Balance is thrilled to partner with the NSSF and the Armory for the New Balance Indoor Nationals,” said Josh Rowe,
marketing manager, running at New Balance. “Serving as an
official sponsor of this event is an effective way for us to
support the high school track and field running community. It
is also very exciting for us to have both the indoor and
outdoor high school track and field national meets under one
New Balance umbrella.”


For
the past decade there have been two indoor national
championship meets, with the National Scholastic Sports Foundation
operating one of the meets, the Indoor Nationals (previously
called the Indoor Classic) since 1999, most recently hosting
it at the Reggie Lewis Sports Complex in Boston. The new three
way partnership of New Balance, the NSSF and the New Balance
Track & Field Center at the Armory combines the two
distinct events into one high school track & field championship
meet at the world’s greatest indoor track and field facility.



“We
are excited to partner with both New Balance and the New
Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory for this meet,”
said meet director Jim Spier. “We recognize the
passion and commitment both entities bring to high school
running and are eager to work together. Now having one indoor
high school championship means that the most talented
student-athletes in the country will be competing head-to-head in one
unified meet, which will bring this event to new unprecedented
levels.”



“We
are delighted that New Balance and the National Scholastic
Sports Foundation have joined to bring a true unified National
High School Championship here to the Armory,” said Armory President
Norb Sander. “It will be a great meet with a wonderful setting for our student-athletes from across the country.”



Similar
to the New Balance Outdoor Nationals, the New Balance Indoor
Nationals event will feature a team scoring element in addition
to the individual championships. Specifically, scoring will award
points to the top 8 places (10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1) in each event.
New Balance will award trophies to the top three boys and
girls teams, for a total of six trophies. New Balance will
also award the top program for each gender with uniforms for
the upcoming 2010-2011 season.



In 2011, the New Balance Indoor Nationals will be held on March 11-13th. For more information, go to: www.nationalscholastic.org
