Carson City will be front and center Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18, when it hosts the 2024 NIAA State Track & Field Championships at the Jim Frank Track Complex at Carson High School. The two-day event will draw more than 1,000 athletes (from four different classifications) and countless fans and spectators from across the state to the Carson City community.

Carson High previously hosted State Track and Field in 2014 and 2018. It is anticipated the event will boost the local economy when approximately $1.1 million will be spent by teams and spectators including gas, hotels, entertainment, meals and more.

The Carson High facility is considered by many to be the best in the entire state. It is the only nine-lane high school track in Nevada and the jumping and throwing areas are located independently, making it a safer venue.

As the school prepares its top-tier facilities, coaches are reaching out to the community for sponsorships to capitalize from the event.

"This event not only highlights the talent of young athletes but also brings significant economic benefits to our community," said Carson High Head Track Coach Ann Britt. "This is an opportunity for local businesses to gain visibility while supporting our athletes and promoting partnerships in education with the Carson City School District."

Carson High School is offering various levels of sponsorship opportunities to businesses and individuals who wish to support the prestigious event. For more information on sponsorship packages or to become a sponsor, please contact Thomas Reymer, Carson High athletic director, 775-283-1608.
