Members have the option of paying dues either on a monthly or annual basis. Memberships purchased on a monthly basis are valid for one month from date of purchase, and will be renewed automatically each month by credit card payment, subject to the terms and conditions.
Memberships purchased on an annual basis are valid for 365 days from date of purchase. Athletes 35 years and older require a Masters Athlete membership.

Fees as of January 1, 2019

Beginning January 1, 2019, Athlete members who are 35 years or older, based on year of birth, will be required to sign up for a Masters membership. This means if you are turning 35 years old (or older) in the 2019 calendar year, you will be required to renew as a Masters member. This change will not affect eligibility for USA Weightlifting competitions. Masters members will continue to be eligible to compete in both USA Weightlifting Senior-level competitions and USA Weightlifting Masters competitions.
