  • Providing member-only discounts for tournament/league registration fees for USAPA Showcase Events. If a player can see, on a single calendar, several tournaments that offer a total of $10 – $20 in discounts for USAPA members, the decision to become a member is an easier decision, particularly if the player can join as part of the registration process for the first event.



  • Having membership tables available at events so that players can complete the registration/renewal forms and write checks for memberships that will be batched and forwarded to the USAPA – Click Here for Membership Table ideas.


  • Having Internet connections available at events where possible, so that players can register/renew online.
