Athletes are responsible for registering for races individually before they sign up for SMBA supported race travel and coach support. Race entry registration can be completed on-line through each event’s website, or in some cases, on-site at the race venue. Some events sell-out quickly, so be sure to register early!
Parents will need to help their child fill out all registration forms, paying special attention to waivers that need to be signed by a parent or guardian. If any paperwork or money needs to be sent along with your athlete to the race, please make sure that you have a designated place for important items in your athlete’s backpack or bag, or the coach receives the paperwork before the van departs from the SMBA office.
Race entry fees can range between $0 and $300 depending on the race format, location, event promoter/host/governing body, and whether or not it is a fundraiser event.
Many races offer a discounted rate or free entry for juniors.
