Greetings from the USAT Florida Region Council,
We have some exciting news to share!
USAT Club Incentive Program
USAT has just announced a new Tri Club Incentive Program to encourage club and USAT membership growth.
The program in a nutshell provides clubs with dollars to spend on club-branded apparel or club-branded signage via program sponsors, 2XU and MPS Event Graphics. The awards range from $900 to $3,000 and are determined based on increases in club and annual USAT memberships from May 13 through November 30, 2016. To participate, clubs must enroll in the program via their club profile page on the USAT website and submit an updated current roster of athletes by May 13th or as soon as practical.
As a reminder, your club and annual USAT membership provides programs that support the multisport lifestyle as a lifelong sport in a supportive community environment that encourages participation from a diverse group of individuals at all age levels. Beyond sanctioned races, this modest membership investment also supports USAT programs such as Youth Development, High School Programs, Emerging NCAA Collegiate Triathlon, and Para-triathlon, among others.
