Welcome to the New Canaan Blazers

Once you receive your USATF-CT number, copy it and click the REGISTER button below on the NCB season you’d like to sign up for. Your membership number is a ten digit number that must be renewed every calendar year. Every Blazer receives a membership number that never changes from year to year but is only valid if renewed.

NOTE: New Canaan Blazers CLUB # 05-0403 – you will need this info for when you fill out the form.

(We are the New Canaan Blazers not the New Balance Blazers!)

If you are new to the Club you will need to “age verify” your child for the national data base. This is done simply by emailing a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport to Jim Barber at jwbarber0917@sbcglobal.net and informing him you are a member of the New Canaan Blazers.
