For the first time in four years, USA Triathlon is increasing the adult annual membership fee $5, from $45 to $50, and the adult one-day membership fee $3, from $12 to $15, effective Jan. 1, 2016. For youths, the annual membership fee will be lowered from $15 to $10 per youth member. No one-day membership option will be provided for youths due to the new lower annual membership cost.
WHY THE CHANGE?
This change allows us to continue to provide excess accident insurance to participants of our USA Triathlon Sanctioned Events, as well as race directors who host those sanctioned events. Significantly rising insurance premiums necessitate this increase in order for USA Triathlon to continue to provide the same level of coverage. Please note: this is only the fourth time USA Triathlon has increased membership fees in the past 15 years, with the last increase in 2012. USA Triathlon still offers competitive pricing compared to the average annual membership fee for all other National Governing Bodies in the U.S. Olympic Movement, which averages approximately 20 percent more for adults and 250 percent more for youth.
