Performance Pool Funding
To assist our top athletes to remain in the sport after graduation and to assist them with their everyday living expenses, USATF created a three-tier program of direct athlete support that includes:
The objective of this program is to support those coaches who are producing medal-contending athletes. The criteria for this program coincide with our direct athlete support program criteria-in that a coach must have an athlete that falls under Tier 1 and Tier 2 to qualify for stipend.
The stipend amount will be $2,000 for Tier 1 athletes and $1,000 for Tier 2 athletes and the athlete must complete a form to designate their coach of record in order for USATF to process the payment.
In addition to the base program, “Medalist Bonuses” will be distributed after the 2013 World Championships. This bonus is distributed to coaches who produce medalists at the World Championships and provides additional support to these coaches. The bonus stipend amount will be determined based on the amount left from the base program and the number of medalists.
Athlete stipends and medical reimbursements are processed by the USOC once athletes have completed the necessary paperwork (see processing details below).
