MEMBERSHIP TYPES

Athlete: Our most popular membership type. This membership allows athletes to participate in individual Championship Events. This membership type receives USTA News & Views, a monthly eNewsletter; Catch It!, a quarterly eZine; and the annual Catch It! Winners' Issue. First-time Athlete members also receive a uniform insignia patch. If you have been an Organization athlete in the past your ID # will remain the same, only your membership type will change. Please ask your Organization coach what your ID # is.

Family: This membership type is for additional members in a twirling family. The first member must be an Athlete or Professional member. Additional family members may sign up for a Family membership. The first family member will receive USTA News & Views, a monthly eNewsletter; and Catch It!, a quarterly eZine.

Professional: This membership type is for coaches, judges and other twirling professionals. Professional members who have completed USTA Coach or Judge certification are eligible for insurance coverage. First-time certified Professionals will receive a certificate and first-time certified Coaches will receive a coaches’ patch. Minimum age 16. Minimum age to vote 18.

Alumni: This membership type is for former athletes and their parents/other relatives, retired coaches, judges and anyone interested in supporting the sport of baton twirling. Alumni members receive a proof of membership letter, sent by e-mail (if an email address is provided.) Alumni members also receive USTA News & Views, a monthly eNewsletter; Catch It!, a quarterly eZine (if email address is provided); and the Catch It! Winners' Issue. This membership type does NOT include the privilege of entering competitions, insurance coverage or Professional voting privileges.

Organization Membership: This membership type is for athletes competing in group events and the Foundation Events of Basic, Military, Parade March and Presentation. Organization directors must submit a roster with athlete names, birthdates, addresses and parent names, addresses and emails. The organization will be assigned a Member ID # and each athlete within the organization will be assigned a Member ID #. Each athlete’s Member ID # must be submitted when filling out entry forms for competitions. Should these organization athletes decide to apply for an individual membership, their Member ID # will remain the same, only their member type will change. It is NOT necessary to list athletes who already have an individual membership on your Organization membership application. An individual membership allows them to participate in all individual AND group events. The Organization membership ONLY allows them to compete in group events and the Foundation Events of Basic, Military, Parade March and Presentation. To compete in individual events (including Compulsory/Movement Technique evaluations) athletes MUST hold some type of individual membership. The Organization membership type receives the Catch It! eZine, the Catch It! Winners' Issue (mailed to the Organization director only), a proof of membership letter with the team ID # and accident insurance on each athlete listed on the roster.
