The History of USATF
On January 30, 1878, rower and runner William B. Curtis founded what became the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) in New York City. The name was formally adopted in 1887. The AAU governed the sport until 1979, when the first Amateur Sports Act decreed that the AAU could no longer hold international franchises for more than one sport. The Athletics Congress/USA (TAC/USA) became fully operational in late 1979 with its first annual meeting, conducted in Las Vegas, and a constitutional convention held in Dallas/Fort Worth in 1980. In 1992, our name was changed to USA Track & Field to increase recognition for the organization and the sport in the United States.
