USATF Membership

For insurance purposes, you must register your child with the USATF before you are able to register them for the Appleseeds Youth Running Program. If you haven’t done so, click here to register today!

Registering your child with USATF does not automatically register them for Appleseeds. Registration numbers will be verified with USATF prior to practices beginning.

When registering with USATF, your child’s club number is 134 on the registration form. USATF memberships must be renewed each calendar year.
