Impala Racing Team - Membership Application
Thank you for your interest in the Impala Racing Team. We invite you to visit our website where you can learn more about our team: www.impalaracingteam.org.

The Impala Racing Team is a group of women of all ages and many ability levels, who are dedicated to racing in Northern California, with a primary focus on the PA/USAT&F Grand Prix road, cross-country, track, and MUT circuits (https://www.pausatf.org/). Members are expected to participate in coached workouts in San Francisco (we have weekly workouts on Tuesday evenings, with some Saturday morning workouts as well) and participate in races according to individual and team goals. We also encourage participation in fund raising, social events, and community volunteering throughout the year. Although this amounts to a substantial commitment of time and energy, you will find that racing with the Impalas will generously repay you for that effort and help you reach your running potential.

During open periods of membership, accepted candidates are invited to participate in 4 team workouts so that we can get to know prospective new members. We prefer these workouts to be as consecutive as possible to demonstrate commitment and dedication to team activities. The focus during this "trial period" is to get a sense of commitment to showing up to practice and compatibility with team members and the team's goals. After this period of time, the Impala Board of Directors will determine whether it is appropriate to extend an invitation for membership.

Please complete this form so that we have some idea of your running and racing experience. Applications must be received by the following dates. Applications received after the deadlines will be considered for the next open membership period.
WINTER (practices start late January) - applications due November 30th, 2018
SUMMER (practices start early July) - applications due May 31st, 2019

Outside of these two windows, we accept applicants who meet our elite standards. The team elite standards can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LylyQjZG3-Oprm5KT4WCj6_m2QBe13fmV6zRS0HcNt0/edit

We look forward to hearing from you! If you have any questions, please email our Membership Coordinator at impalamembership@gmail.com.
