Membership Information

Step 1: Select the membership type

Membership Type:

Select from the following types:

Annual: Good for the current year only, and expires on December 31 of registration year. (Memberships purchased after November 1 are good for the following year as well).

The pricing for each division for both annual and auto-renew memberships is as follows:

  • Open, Masters, Junior, Non-Competing, Adaptive Athlete, Para Bench* $70
  • Teen* $45 if under 18, otherwise $70
  • Youth* $30
  • Special Olympian* $25

* For Australian lifters, there is a surcharge of $55. This is not optional, and will be added to the total for the purchase. No-Compete members are exempt from this surcharge. Contact the national office for more details.

Auto-Renew: Same as the annual membership, but the membership is automatically renewed at the end of the year. You will be billed on an annual basis automatically. Auto-Renew memberships are only good for the Open division, and the member must be 14 years of age or older. Australia members cannot select auto-renew due to the mandatory insurance fee.

See the Auto Renewal Membership Terms & Conditions and Auto Renewal Membership FAQs for more details.

Lifetime: Lifetime memberships are good from the purchase date, for the life of the member. Cost will vary depending on the age of the member registering, and member must be 17 years of age or older.

See the Lifetime Membership Terms & Conditions and Benefits for more details.

Table of Lifetime Membership Costs
Age Range Price   Age Range Price   Age Range Price
17-22 $2,437   43-47 $1,917   68-72 $1,063
23-27 $2,353   48-52 $1,778   73-77 $835
28-32 $2,259   53-57 $1,625   78-82 $587
33-37 $2,156   58-62 $1,456   83+ $306
38-42 $2,043   63-67 $1,269      

Step 2: Select Divisions

Select at least one Division from the left two columns. Open can be selected with any other division.

The Solitary Divisions in the right hand column allow no additional divisions.

As a Master, Teen, or Junior you may also register as Open, but it's not required. However, if you wish to compete in the Open division, then Open must be selected. If Open is selected in addition to any of the other base divisions, the cost of registration will be that of Open, and not the other selected division.

For example, if Teen and Open are both selected, then the cost of membership will be $70, not $45.
