What does the ACA Membership cover?

  • The ACA Membership covers eligibility to participate in all ACA-sanctioned activities – including preseason events, practices, ACA hosted workshops – and insurance for all of those activities.
  • The ACA Membership is not refundable once paid.
  • ACA Membership deadline: Enrollment will remain open and student-athletes may sign up to participate throughout the current season.
  • Your team’s registration deadline may differ from the ACA’s deadline. Teams have the authority to close registration earlier than the ACA deadline in the interest of organizing the team, ordering kits and preparing riders for the race series.

What does the Race Package cover?

  • The Race Package covers event registration for all races during the season.
  • The Race Package may not be broken up based on race attendance (no pro-rating for missed races) and is not refundable after August 31 (exceptions may be made for season-ending injuries).

What if I’m not sure if I want to race or I can’t attend all of the races?

  • Student-athletes must pay only the ACA Membership to participate in ACA-sanctioned non-race activities. If or when riders choose to race, they may then pay for the Race Package or register for individual races.

What if I can’t afford to pay the fees?
