Membership Setup

RunSignup continues to strengthen integrations to sports organizations with our new rollout of real-time membership validation for U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS). USMS has nearly 60,000 members that train together and compete in sanctioned events. With our new integration it is even easier for USMS members to register for events and receive member discounts as set by race directors. Note that USMS Our one-event membership fee is $20 starting January 1, 2023.

 This section will explain the steps involved with setting up a membership for your race.

Under the Financial tab of the race dashboard, in the Pricing section, you will find the subheading for Memberships.

Note: The Memberships option can be used to create your own types of custom membership discounts.  However, there are other features on RunSignUp that may be more suitable for your needs instead of creating a custom membership setting.  Before setting up Memberships for anything other than the USATF, USAT, USSA, USAC, USMS and/or AARP, please check out Club Membership Discounts, Corporate Teams, Coupons, and/or Registration Add-ons, as these may be geared more towards your desired outcome.

Global Race Settings

If you open up the section for Global Race Settings, then you will find the option to Prohibit double dipping (i.e. don’t allow a single registrant to take more than one discount per event).

Note: This excludes USAT memberships.

If you would like to make sure that registrants do not receive more than one discount per event (excluding USAT memberships), then you can turn this option on by checking off the box, and then hitting Save Changes.

Setting Up Memberships and Adding Membership Settings

Membership settings can be enabled for All Events, Individual Events, or both.

If you click on the All Events heading to set up a membership, then any user who registers for your race will be asked about this membership option regardless of which event or events they selected. Also, if they are registering for multiple events, then they will only be asked once for this membership information, and any price adjustments will be applied once per event.

You can also set up event specific memberships separately by clicking on the Individual Event headers.

Regardless of whether you have selected the All Events heading, or an Individual Event heading, adding a membership setting follows the same procedure. To begin, click on the button marked Add Membership Setting and then United States Masters Swimming.

Set Up United States Masters Swimming (USMS) Membership

By selecting the United States Masters Swimming (USMS) Membership option, the fields will be populated with the information for a standard Membership United States Masters Swimming (USMS) membership discount.

When you are ready to create this membership setting, click on the button for Save Changes.

Deleting a Membership Setting

You can remove a membership setting by clicking on the Delete button in the corresponding membership settings box.


When you have finished modifying the necessary settings, click the button for Save Changes, and you will

receive confirmation that Your changes have been saved.
