For insurance and liability purposes all athletes including collegians are required to have a USATF (USA Track and Field) membership prior to working out with the club. There are NO exceptions to this rule! We will need proof of your USATF membership before we can allow any athlete to participate so please bring it to practice with you.

If you have signed up for USATF membership online but have not received your membership card yet just print out the receipt with your USATF number.

A year’s membership in the USATF costs $30 for those 18 and under and $55 for those 19 and up. It covers you until December 31st, 2022.

The easiest way to sign up for USATF membership is online at the USATF website. 

As you register we ask that you list us as your “USATF-Registered Club”.
