The CIAA Track season usually starts in January with Athletes hoping to meet qualifying standards for regional and international meets. The CIAA says that district meets are mainly used for talent searching. There might be some unknown talent in the districts that is not affiliated to a club but might come out of curiosity and participate, and hopefully become interested and decide to get seriously involved.
