Credential and Guest Passes (RC, SP, WP)

Credential and Passes (RC, SP, WP)
Registered Coach “RC”, Warm-up Pass “WP”, and Stadium Pass “SP” credentials are designed to allow an athlete’s coach and/or personal support access to the warm-up area, athlete seating or practice track for the purpose of preparing for competition. Credentials are non-transferrable and each support person will only be allowed to receive one credential.

  • Individual must be 18 years of age or older to receive a credential.

  • Individual must be a current (2017) member of USA Track & Field.

  • Individual receiving the “RC” Registered Coach’s credential must also be a current (2017) member of USA Track & Field’s Coaches Registry Program, which now includes completing the USOC Safe Sport course. **View the Registered Coach section below for my information on the application process. 

Credentials can be obtained at Credentialing in Sacramento, CA.

Athletes will have the following credential options for their support persons:
1. One Complimentary Credential Option (pick one of the following):

  • RC - Registered Coach - coach of record (warm-up area and stadium only)

  • WP - Warm-up Pass (no stadium access; warm-up area access only)

  • SP - Stadium Pass - (stadium seating access only; no warm-up area access)

 
Each participating athlete may request one of the above options for his or her personal support by specifying the name of the individual designated to receive that credential on his or her on-line registration (entry form). On-line Registration (entries) closes June 15, 2017, USATF will not be accepting any updates for registration via email. Athletes who still need to designate (add/update) coaches/athlete support names for credentials can complete this on-site in Sacramento, CA. There will be a USATF verification station that can validate which credential option the coach/athlete support is eligible for.  
Credentials are non-transferrable and each support person will only be allowed to receive one credential.
