USATF will now institute a late fee structure to both the sanction application and requests for third-party certificates of insurance. Per our Governance Handbook, event directors should be applying for sanctions at least 30 days in advance of their event. Note, USATF does not charge a fee for third-party certificates of insurance with the exception of any late fee that may be assessed. Below is the new late fee structure:

Application Late Fees:
Applications Received 29 days - 16 days prior to event = 10% increase in sanction fee
Applications Received 15 days - 8 days prior to event = 25% increase in sanction fee
Applications Received 7 days - 4 days prior to event = %50 increase in sanction fee
Applications Received 3 days or less prior to event = %100% increase in sanction fee

Late Fees for Certificate of Insurance Requests:
Requests Received 7 days - 4 days prior to event = $25
Requests Received 3 days or less prior to event = $50

USATF will now impose a 10% administrative fee on any refunds for cancelled sanctions.

The USATF National Fee for all sanctioned events that elect to waive USATF liability insurance will be 25% of the regular sanction fee, not to exceed a total charge of $1,000.

In addition to the changes noted above, USATF is committed to providing better resources to both our Associations and event directors to improve overall support for the sanction program. USATF will provide enhanced educational resources on best practices with regard to event management and with the assistance and collaboration of our partners in the field, USATF plans to create training courses for event directors in order to increase their knowledge on topics such as risk management, medical safety, security and event management.
