MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS EXTENDED THROUGH JULY 31 IN RESPONSE TO THE IMPACT OF COVID-19,
As a courtesy to current Program, Owner, Coach and Athlete Members with eligibility through May 31, 2020 - we are extending eligibility through July 31st.
The membership term does not change, however due to the impact of COVID-19 we are implementing a grace period for membership renewal in order to ensure you continue to receive member benefits for an additional two months.
New members may join beginning June 1st for the new member term. Current members may also renew membership June 1st or later, but should know they will be covered through July 31st if they opt to postpone membership renewal.
USASF views athletes as the foundation of the organization and understands this a trying time, both emotionally and physically. Being away from the sport you love can leave you feeling disconnected, fearing the skills, technique and personal development you have achieved will be lost. To combat those feelings, resources have been gathered, created and shared below, and we encourage all athletes to stay connected to their coach through any online teaching they are providing. USASF has full confidence All Star Athletes will continue to grow while away from the gym or studio and will return ready to take the floor again!
Your gym or studio owner may be offering virtual training. Take advantage of the stretching, conditioning and technical aspects they are providing for you. Develop your skills and work on exploring other facets of your All Star experience.
