Ensure that your email address is correct
National Championship invitations are sent via e-mail ONLY!  We've been sending email event announcements to the email address in your membership profile all season long.  If you've been receiving them then you're good to go, however if you have not, please log in to your USASA Member Profile and update your email address.  One email address per member only, two does not work.  It is critical that you accept your invitation as soon as you receive it.  PQ's and Q's invitations are valid for 72 hours once sent, NR's are valid for 48 hours. Once the invitation expires, it is auto declined and issued to the next competitor in the rankings.
