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 Athletic.net account. The managed athlete function is primarily geared towards parents whose children are too young to have their own Athletic.net 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.
- If you are attempting to register yourself for an event, do not follow these instructions. You should claim your bio, and then register as an individual. Normally, claiming your bio is a part of the account creation process on Athletic.net. If you did not do so, see Claim Your Athlete Bio. Once you've claimed your bio, see Registering for an Event as an Individual.
- If you are a coach attempting to register athletes on your team for a meet, or add them to your team's roster, do not follow these instructions. To add athletes to your team's roster, see Adding, Deactivating, Reactivating, and Moving Athletes. To register athletes on your team for a meet, see Submitting Team Entries for a Track & Field Meet or Submitting Team Entries for a Cross Country Meet.
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.
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.
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.
