Below is a brief outline of those changes and what your next steps are.

USATF CONNECT

NEW AGE VERIFICATION PROCESS

The Pacific Association office will NO LONGER PROCESS AGE VERIFICATIONS VIA EMAIL. ALL new or non-verified memberships will need to submit verification documents through USATF CONNECT WEBSITE, the NEW Membership Management System, for verification. Any members who verified their age on the old system will NOT need to re-verify on the new system. This change will be critical for all athletes wishing to participate in a USATF Championship event.
