NOTES FROM THE USA CYCLING LOCAL ASSOCIATION SUMMIT
KCA Board Member Bill Mason recently attended the USA Cycling Local Association Summit. His Notes from the Summit contain pertinent information for our cycling community and are here. Please note that the fee rates stated in the notes are tentative rates being proposed by USAC staff to the USAC Board which is scheduled to meet in late November.
USAC Club/Team Affiliations
The KCA now syncs its racer data with USAC data. This is done via a download before each race weekend. Consequently, if you want your club/team changed in the KCA database, you need to change it with USAC. Please see the link below to Club Membership FAQs, including how to change your club/team affiliation after you have purchased a license. Please remember that you need to designate to USAC the correct club and team for each discipline you race: road, cx, mountain, etc. in order for this information to be accurate in the KCA results and series points. The KCA will send each club president a list of the club’s current members and their club/team affiliation. Club presidents can use this list to update club/team information with USAC.
If you don’t need a physical license mailed to you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 719-434-4200 to have your club affiliation updated in your account. If you would like your club affiliation updated and a physical license mailed out, you can “reissue” your license under the “license” tab of your account for $15.00. One of the steps will ask you to update your club and team.
JUNIOR ENTRY FEES SUBSIDIZED BY KEEN WEALTH MANAGEMENT GROUP OF WELLS FARGO ADVISORS AND KCA
August 11, 2013
The KCA is pleased to announce the 2013 $1,000 donation from the Keen Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors has been matched with $1,000 from the KCA to promote junior racing. For 2013 Cyclocross and 2014 Road Races, the KCA will subsidize race promoters who are members in good standing of the KCA, per the KCA Bylaws, $5.00 per junior entry in a junior (not category) race. The payment will be made by the KCA within thirty days of the KCA Treasurer’s receipt of the number of junior entries in the race via either the Chief Referee Report or official results. The KCA Board recognizes that, per USA Cycling, race entry fees are set in a free market at the discretion of the organizer. However, it is the KCA Board’s hope that promoting clubs and race directors, in order to promote junior racing, will charge junior entry fees of $5.00 which will be paid by the racer. The $5.00 paid by the KCA will result in an actual entry fee of $10.00. Further, per the KCA surcharge policy, the $1.00 surcharge is not assessed on entries with a fee of $10.00 or less. Official race fliers will include a statement that junior entry fees are sponsored by the Keen Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors and the KCA.
