Travel Stipends for Championship Events

Teams competing at Championship events will receive travel stipends outlined in the 2008-2009 USCA Championships Rules and Procedures (Section I, item 7).  Stipends will be mailed to teams after the events.

Stipend Request Protocol

1. Teams must complete a travel stipend form. Copies of the blank forms will be distributed to teams at the championship events. However, teams may download the forms and send them to the USCA office prior to the event. Either way, completed forms should be sent to the USCA office by mail, fax or email (signatures must show).  Because these are stipends, teams do not send travel receipts, but are encouraged to keep them for their own tax records.
* M/W Nationals-Trials
* Junior Nationals
* M/W Club Nationals
* Mixed Nationals

2. Teams must designate one person to receive the stipend on behalf of the entire team. 

3. Each of a team's four team members must enter address information and sign a copy of the form; individual signed copies are fine, as long as the USCA receives signatures from each team member.  (Note: A 5th player will be stipended only if the 5th replaces one of the other four players for the entire Championship event.)

The USCA will use a GPS website to calculate the distance between each athlete's address and the event site.  The website provides city-to-city distances.  These distances will determine stipend amounts, which are based on whether a player falls within or outside of a 350-mile radius.  Please keep in mind that this is an as-the-crow-flies measurement, not actual driving distance.  If the GPS distances are close to, but within, the 350-mile radius, the USCA will provide the website documents to the team to give them an opportunity to supply additional information if they believe the distance between an athlete's address and the event site address is greater than 350 miles.

Questions?  Please contact Sandy Robinson, Controller, at 888-287-5377 x205.

2008-2009 USCA CHAMPIONSHIPS
Rules and Procedures

SECTION I - USCA CHAMPIONSHIP POLICIES
7. Expenses
Team expenses through the regional playdowns of all events (including the National Championship Qualifiers and Challenge Rounds) are the responsibility of the teams. All expenses in the Senior Championship, Mixed Doubles Championship, WUGs, and Wheelchair tryouts are the responsibility of the teams. Teams advancing to the championship round of the Men's and Women's National Championships/Olympic Team Trials will have expenses for the first four players offset at a flat rate of:
 Players living within 350 mile radius of the Trials site: $50
 Players living outside 350 mile radius of the Trials site: $400

Expenses of the Men's and Women's Club National Championships and the Mixed National Championship will be prorated based on the total entry revenue excluding the field of play contribution. Junior team reimbursement will be prorated based on a total travel reimbursement budget of $18,000. No team will receive more than the USCA standard reimbursement stated above.

Teams must submit their stipend request form to the USCA office within one month following the event. One check will be sent to the team contact person stated on the request forms; all players must consent in writing by signing a copy of the request form.
