Adding a Managed Athlete to Your Account

If you have an athlete under 13 years old, you'll need to add them to your account as a “managed athlete” in order to register them for events. A managed athlete is an athlete whose registrations are controlled by another account. The managed athlete function is primarily geared towards parents whose children are too young to have their own account (you must be 13 years old to have your own account). However, a parent may list their child as a managed athlete regardless of their age. This has the advantage of allowing parents register their child for meets themselves as well as paying any applicable registration fees on behalf of their child.

This article is intended to show you how to add an athlete (such as your child) to your account for the purposes of registering an athlete who is too young to have their own account.

From the top right of the screen, click on your initials or picture, then choose  Dashboard.

At the top of your Dashboard, page, choose Athlete Registration.

Under Register an Individual, choose Add Athlete.

If you are attempting to register athletes you coach for a meet, do not choose Add Athlete. Select your team logo from the icons underneath to be taken to the team registration page.

On the subsequent screen, click Add Unattached Athlete.

From the box that appears, select either USATF or Not USATF depending on whether your managed athlete is a USATF athlete.

If your athlete is a USATF athlete, enter their USATF number. This will automatically pull in all of the athlete's details from USATF and allows you to complete the process in one easy step. Once you've entered their USATF number, click Add.

You should always enter a USATF number for your athlete if the athlete has one. This will prevent duplicate bios from being created and ensure all of the athlete's results appear in one place.

If your athlete isn't a USATF athlete, choose Not USATF, and enter the athlete's details, including first name, last name, date of birth, and gender, then click Add.

Once the athlete has been added, you'll be able to register them as an individual in both live and virtual events. See Registering for an Event as an Individual for more information.
