USATF Membership


The Rising Phoenix Track Club is a proud Member Club of USA Track & Field. USA Track & Field (USATF) is the National Governing Body for track & field, long-distance running and race walking in the United States. USATF encompasses the world’s oldest organized sports, the most-watched events of Olympic broadcasts, the No. 1 high school and junior high school participatory sport and more than 30 million adult runners in the United States. Led by President Vin Lanana and CEO Max Siegel, USATF is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization with a staff of professional program administrators at the National Office in Indianapolis.
What are the benefits of being a Member Club?

As a Member Club, the Rising Phoenix Track Club can be represented at USATF-sanctioned events, such as the Masters Outdoor Track & Field Championships, or the USA Club Outdoor Track & Field Championships, USA Track & Field Junior Olympic Championship series, etc.

Insurance and liability coverage for USATF and RPTC Members at scheduled practices and events.

Networking with other coaches, athletes, and clubs that are registered with USA Track & Field.

As a USATF member club, we do require that each and every one of our RPTC members are also a USA Track & Field member. Individual USATF membership will allow the athlete to represent the Rising Phoenix Track Club at USA Track & Field sanctioned events, gain a 10% discount at the online USA Track & Field store, gain access to USATF’s outstanding rewards program through USATF Rewards, and many other benefits.
