Layout of 2020 NJSIAA Dates and Major Post-Season Meets


To close out any confusion with the scheduling harmony between the NJSIAA dates during the 2020 track and field seasons with major post-season meets we'd like to map out the schedule here.

There were big changes to the NJSIAA schedule and where it falls on the calendar this coming year but there are no conflicts with New Balance Nationals or Eastern States Championships.

Please see the listings below, we're just focusing on non-local post-season championship meets in close proximity to the NJSIAA dates.

Joe Lanzalotto, who works directly with the NSAF on New Balance Nationals for both Indoor and Outdoor reached out on the matter, "NBNO is always on Fathers Day weekend," and added, " We would never interfere with a state high school championship unless it was completely unavoidable. That has never happened so we cannot envision it happening going forward."
