USA CLIMBING DAY-MEMBER PASS
For the athlete that’s new to competition climbing, a $10 Day-member pass will allow you to compete in a USA Climbing sanctioned local competition and be placed amongst the other competitors in your category at the event.

All competitors that do not register for an annual membership prior to attending a competition will be subject to the $10 Day-member fee. The fees paid for Day-member passes will not be applied or credited toward any other type of USAC membership. A Day-member pass is valid for 24-hours from the time of purchase.

Athletes that compete as a Day-member will not be eligible to advance to Regionals. If a Youth or Collegiate competitor wishes to be eligible to compete in Regionals, he/she will need to purchase the respective USA Climbing Membership prior to the close of Regional registration in order for the locals he/she competed in as a Day-member to count toward the competitors Regional eligibility.

Day-Member passes can be purchased by going to USA Climbing's website clicking the "Join Now" button in the top right corner, creating an account if you do not already have one and selecting the $10 Day-Membership.

We ask that you complete USA Climbing's requirements and pay their day fee before arriving at the gym for the comp.
