Representing your nation at the Olympic and Paralympic Games is one of the highest honors in sport. The U.S. Olympians and Paralympians Association Membership Program entitles the bearer to the rights and benefits developed by the USOPC in conjunction with USOPA. It is a fitting way to recognize both the past contributions of U.S. Olympians and Paralympians and the important role they continue to play in fostering the Olympic and Paralympic dreams of future generations of Team USA athletes.


Members are granted an official membership ID bearing the athlete’s name, sport and years of service; a complimentary subscription to The Olympian & Paralympian – the official newsletter of USOPA; a 10 percent discount on merchandise purchased at United States Olympic & Paralympic gift shops; regular mailings announcing events and exclusive sponsor discounts.

Final Farewell Bereavement Program

USOPA responds immediately upon hearing the news that a U.S. Olympian or Paralympian has passed away. Each family receives a letter of condolence signed by USOPA president on behalf of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic family. A USOPC flag is also sent to each family.

Medal Replacements

Requests to replace lost medals must be processed and approved by the International Olympic Committee. Other commemorative items, such as Games rings, watches and jackets may also be requested. Each request is handled on an individual basis. Please contact USOPA for more information at 800-717-7555.
