Membership Types

USA Triathlon offers a variety of membership types: Adult/Youth Annual Membership, Elite Membership, and Lifetime Membership. A USA Triathlon Membership eliminates the requirement to purchase a One-Day License for any USA Triathlon sanctioned event and comes with a variety of exclusive benefits and sponsor discounts from USA Triathlon Partners, inclusion in the USA Triathlon national ranking system, as well as eligibility to qualify for Team USA and compete at ITU World Championship events.

How are the membership fees being used?

Membership fees are used for the development, research, and upkeep of USA Triathlon age-group programs such as championships, event sanctioning, officiating, rankings, membership, media, etc. There is a misconception that membership dollars fund professional athletes. While some funds are allotted to training and development, professional athletes are primarily funded through sponsorships and U.S. Olympic Committee support
