The USASF Athlete Registration System is up and running. It hasn’t been widely publicized yet to help control the traffic and avoid overwhelming the system. This season, 2011-2012, is a phase in year, meaning membership is not required, but strongly encouraged, for all athletes not planning on attending Worlds. To help encourage membership for all athletes there is a free option. Worlds athletes need to have a paid membership that costs $25 now and increases as we get closer to Worlds. Registering athletes under the free or paid options will help provide the data needed to make informed decisions in the future.
