I'm assuming that in addition to verifying and validating an athlete's entry time for seeding purposes, the seeding committee will also be verifying and validating their current USATF membership as well, correct? There was no where to enter their USATF membership number when registering like there is in AthleticNet, so I was just wondering how this information is going to be verified as well? Thanks!

@wedding908 I had the same question... How are they going to tell if we have an ID or not? Because I do not have one yet and am wondering why I am in need of getting one if no where it is required...

@alexran567 "USATF Membership is required for all athletes. USATF cards can be purchased at www.usatf.org." according to the Eligibility section on the meet websites at both ADIDAS INDOOR NATIONALS 2021 - Meet Information [url=https://www.milesplit.com/meets/406986-adidas-indoor-nationals-2021/info]https://www.milesplit.com/meets/406986-adidas-indoor-nationals-2021/info[/url] and Meet Information | Adidas Track Nationals [url=https://adidastracknationals.com/meet-information]https://adidastracknationals.com/meet-information[/url]. This is no different than the membership requirement for both New Balance Nationals and AAU Nationals. I've had to purchase USATF membership in the past solely for this purpose.

@wedding908 Hello, I was waiting for an answer to the question regarding membership verification. Generally, one cannot register without an active membership. However, for this Adidas competition, one is not compelled to verify their membership. Consequently, what happens to an athlete who has registered but does not have a USATF membership? Are you going to purge those individuals? It would be more effective if registration cannot be completed until active membership can be verified. That way, there are no lingering issues close to competition time. Thank you

@osifofamily I agree but apparently registration for this meet wasn't set up that way like I previously experienced with New Balance Nationals Outdoors where registration was done via AthleticNet and USATF membership was verified upfront at the time of registration.

@osifofamily they will verify the USATF membership when an athlete picks up their bib number/packet or when a coach picks up the packet. When picking up the packet, you will have to show proof of membership or you will not be able to pick up your packet and be able to complete.
