The Complete Registration Process
Register Now in 5 Easy Steps!
Step 1 - Club Registration
To Register for the upcoming summer season, click on the above Icon and follow the instructions. Also see FAQ #3 and FAQ #7.
Registration may end as early as April 21, 2023 @11:59 pm. to allow plenty of time for competition uniforms to be delivery prior to our first summer meet. So, don't procrastinate; ensure you get registered ASAP in the event we're not able to extend the registration period.
Step 3 - BAND App Account
The BAND app is how our team will communicate. The team manager or head coach will send text announcements and reminders to both athletes and parents.
Click here to learn how to establish your account. You may also click on the above Icon to view the onboarding guide that explains all of the app's features.
Once the athlete's parent/guardian completes steps 1 and 2 above, please immediately complete this step so that you don't miss important EARLY communications. You'll also be able to check to the app to get caught up on any previous information already communicated prior to you or your athlete registering.
For safety reasons, please do not allow athletes younger than 13 years old to create their own BAND account. We will monitor the BAND app to remove all users who are not 13 or older.
Step 4 - Athlete Uniform Order (Mandatory)
Competition and Travel Uniforms
Because Spike Up Athletics is a competitive track and field club, it's important that our athletes looks like a team and represents our club in the best light possible. As a result, we require two uniforms: (1) a competition uniform, and (2) a travel uniform. For both our fall/winter and summer outdoor season, the competition uniforms will be the same. However, our travel uniforms will be different for each of our seasons due to seasonal temperature differences. Click on the above icon to acknowledge understanding of our uniform and loaner uniform policies.
Within 48 hours of receiving your submitted acknowledgement form, Spike Up Athletics' administration will email the athlete and his or her parents information on how to obtain a loaner competition uniform (if available) and order the appropriate travel uniform. Athletes will need both a competition uniform and a travel uniform & backpack. See FAQ #7 for a breakdown of competition and travel uniform costs.
Step 5 - Affiliation Memberships
USATF and AAU Affiliation Memberships
Click on each of the above Icons to find instructions for obtaining the athlete's new club affiliation membership or to renew a membership from a previous season or competition year.
DO NOT COMPLETE THE STEPS FOR THE USATF MEMBERSHIP UNTIL AFTER NOVEMBER 1, 2022. IF YOU COMPLETE THE USATF STEPS BEFORE NOVEMBER 1, 2022, USATF WILL CHARGE YOU FOR TWO MEMBERSHIP YEARS; LAST YEARS AND THE UPCOMING YEAR.
DO NOT COMPLETE THE AAU STEPS UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO BY THE TEAM MANAGER OR HEAD COACH. SPIKE UP ATHLETES TYPICALLY DON'T NEED THE AAU MEMBERSHIP FOR OUR WINTER/INDOOR SEASON. THE AAU MEMBERSHIP IS MOST OFTEN USED FOR OUR SUMMER PROGRAM ATHLETES.
Athletes cannot compete in USATF or AAU sanctioned events under the Spike Up Athletics name without these memberships. Total cost of youth memberships $46. Total cost of adult athlete $82.50. Total cost for non-competing adults $71.
