Entry Forms

Other Required Documents

If proof-of-age verification is needed, you will be notified during the online entry process and/or your entry will be listed as "info needed" on the Status of Entries page. If this applies to you, please submit a proof-of-age document (a copy of your birth certificate or passport) with your membership number written on it as follows:
  • Fax: 317-261-0481 -- attention: USA Youth Championships, Mona Mascher
  • Postal mail: USA Youth Championships, attn: Mona Mascher, One RCA Dome, Suite 140, Indianapolis, IN 46225

Athletes entering by paper may wish to attach a copy of their proof-of-age document to the entry form to ensure compliance with the proof-of-age requirement.

USATF also recommends athletes bring a copy of their proof-of-age document to packet pick-up as a back-up measure--a proof-of-age document is required prior to receiving competitor packets.

Athletes will not be considered to be entered into the meet until ALL required documents have been received. Athletes missing required documents will be listed as "info needed" on the Status of Entries page of the USATF website until all such documents are received.
