U.S. Olympians & Paralympians Association
USOPA Resources and Benefits
Representing your nation at the Olympic and Paralympic Games is one of the highest honors in sport. The U.S. Olympians and Paralympians Association Membership Program entitles the bearer to the rights and benefits developed by the USOPC in conjunction with USOPA. It is a fitting way to recognize both the past contributions of U.S. Olympians and Paralympians and the important role they continue to play in fostering the Olympic and Paralympic dreams of future generations of Team USA athletes.
Members are granted an official membership ID bearing the athlete’s name, sport and years of service; a complimentary subscription to The Olympian & Paralympian – the official newsletter of USOPA; and regular mailings announcing events and exclusive sponsor discounts.
USOPA provides medal replacement services that are processed through requests to the International Olympic Committee. Claims can also be made to replace other commemorative items such as, rings and IOC participation pins. If you would like to file a request, call the Olympian & Paralympian Hotline: 800-717-7555 or contact Christine Taylor: firstname.lastname@example.org.
USOPA newsletters are normally published on a quarterly basis and an archive of past newletters can be found here:
