BTFA is now the BNAA

Bermuda Track and Field Association will be known as Bermuda National Athletics Association (BNAA) in the future.

The name change came about at the behest of the IAAF and has been approved by the Charities Association and BNAA members.

“As you are aware we have been in discussion for the last several months regarding the name change of the Bermuda Track and Field Association,” BNNA president Donna Watson said. “There are several reasons we have decided to do this.

“At the last IAAF Congress it was suggested that as each National Association encompasses not only track and field but also road running and race walking that the association’s name should say ‘Athletics” instead of ‘Track & Field’.

“It was also advised that the word ‘Amateur’ be removed. Most of the associations have gone through the process of the name change and there were only a few which included us that still had ‘Track & Field’ in their name.

“Therefore we discussed this at the Board level and decided it was time for us to be inclusive and do it before it was made mandatory. Of course, we wanted to get through Carifta and the remainder of our season first.

“We have done our due diligence and had the name approved by the Charities Association. We then held an SGM (special general meeting) and presented the name to our affiliates and it has been accepted that the new name for the Bermuda Track and Field Association is now Bermuda National Athletics Association (BNAA).”
