Central American Age Group Championships in Athletics

The Central American Age Group Championships in Athletics (Campeonatos Centroamericanos Juvenil C y Infantil A) is an Confederación Atlética del Istmo Centroamericano CADICA (Central American Isthmus Athletic Confederation) open for athletes from member associations. The event is divided into the Junior C (U-16) Central American Championships and the Infantile A (U-14) Central American Championships. The Junior C category is open for girls and boys aged 14–15. The Infantile A category is open for girls and boys aged 12–13. The competition started to be open for age groups U-14 (Spanish: Infantil A) and U-12 (Spanish: Infantil B) as Campeonatos Centroamericanos Infantil. There is a report on an early competition held in the year 1984 in El Salvador.[1] At least from 1999 on, it is verified that the competition is held annually. In 2007, the format was changed to be open for the age groups U-16 and U-14, with U-12 competitions being held occasionally. In 2012, a specific Central American "Kids Athletics" tournament (Spanish: Torneo Centroamericano Kids Athletics) was introduced for this age group (9–11 years).[2]
