Administrative history

The Sioux Falls, SD, Junior Chamber of Commerce/Jaycee Summer Track Program began in 1969. This program was part of a “1969 Junior Champ track program” scheduled in ten cities in South Dakota and sponsored by the South Dakota Jaycees and Spader Camper Center of Brookings, South Dakota. Stan Jensen of Brookings was the Chairman. The program was intended to provide the “opportunity to run, jump or throw” and “to become familiar with the fun, recreation, and general feeling of well-being that comes with exertion and physical fitness.” It culminated in the state championships for boys and girls in the 15-18 age group, whose winners were qualified to attend 1969’s 6th/5th Annual U.S. Jaycee Junior Track and Field Championships at the University of Minnesota, for which food, lodging and transportation were provided by the sponsors.

From 1970-1973, the South Dakota Jaycees and the American Dairy Association of South Dakota continued the Junior Track program, culminating in the State Meet in Brookings.

The Sioux Falls Jaycees Developmental Meets, now in their 8th year, were part of the Sioux Falls Recreation Department, directed by Rich Greeno from 1974-1976.
