The LAB Track Club's robust 2023 indoor track and field schedule includes a pair of unique, elite competition opportunities during back-to-back weekends coming up in mid-February. 

First, on Saturday, February 11th, the National Youth Invitational is set for the state-of-the art facility just off the campus of Ypsilanti Lincoln High School.

There, the LAB team will be working in collaboration with their friendly rivals from the Motor City Track Club to stage an age-group based meet which will dual showcase both younger athletes, as well as high school aged competitors.

Note that performances achieved will be eligible for MITS state finals consideration. In continuing their hosting trend of offering a selection of non-traditional indoor events, the 200m and 300m hurdles races will be contested.
