Athletes interested in becoming a part of the BATC Elite distance group must meet the club's performance standards, but this alone does not guarantee approval for inclusion in the group. Other factors such as club funding levels, current club roster size, interviews, and references are considered as well. Prospective members must also commit to participate in BATC community outreach events.
Please send an email to email@example.com with an updated running resume and at least two running references. We will contact you at our earliest opportunity to discuss your interest in joining BATC and how you might fit in to our roster of athletes.
BATC Athletes in good standing receive some or all of the following:
Coaching and/or workout administration
Training partners and athlete mentorship
Community outreach opportunities
Facilities access at several Bay Area colleges and high schools
Travel support to races
Discounted gear from the Sports Basement and Transports
Discounted therapy from BATC medical partners
Help finding part-time employment
BATC athletes meeting our Elite standards also receive a monetary stipend.
