Greetings Coaches, Athletes and Parents,
The Whitehouse-Tyler Metro Track Organization is proud to announce the 1st Annual Great American Track and Field Classic. This event will be held at the Beverly Humphrey Stadium in Lancaster, Texas on June 7-9 of 2018.
This event will be held in one of the most competitive areas in the High School Track and Field classification. You are cordially invited to attend and participate. As the saying goes, "If you want to be the best--you got to roll with the best."
The GATFC is an elite high school event, where outstanding track and field athletes will be accepted based on qualifying times and marks only. We will use National Scholastic Emerging Elite Guidelines for entries, understanding that standards may vary due to State performances and entry numbers. Each State team will consist of the upper echelon representing each state from around the Country. Underclassmen may compete as well, (for example: an 8th grader with a qualifying time may compete, but will require prior approval from their state representative.) 

The GATF Classic is located within the Dallas/ Fort Worth metroplex, and there are many modes of travel, restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions and family entertainment.
In addition to the track meet, we will also be presenting a GATF Classic Golf Tournament and Banquet at the Oak Cliff Country Club on the 6th of June for our golfers. We have coordinated hotels and airline discounts for your convenience.  Please refer to www.gatfclassic.com .

NOTE:  The GATFC organization does not compensate any athletes for their participation in this event.  As funding progresses, it may be possible for states other than Texas to receive Travel Vouchers.

The Lancaster High School stadium features a collegiate level track, baseball / softball complex, tennis courts and city park soccer fields. The activity center includes lobby, concessions, locker rooms, workout rooms and two practice gymnasiums. With a 7500 capacity, the stadium is ideal for athletes to go head to head and see whose best.
