In an effort to make the competition renewal and licensing fee payment more streamlined, USDF and USEF have implemented an online competition renewal process that allows licensees to update, make a payment, submit their competition license renewal and apply for USDF recognition online in one convenient process. In order to access the online renewal please go to the USEF Web site and log into the licensee's "My USEF Account". If you need assistance, please contact the USEF Competitions Department at 859-258-2472.
All of the USDF competition guidelines, requirements, forms and checklists can be found on the USDF Competition Forms page. These forms and documents are also available on a Competition Management Flash Drive that has an automatic update program installed so that competition management has the most up-to-date information and forms available to host USEF-licensed/USDF-recognized competitions. The Competition Management Flash Drive may be purchased from the USDF Online Store.

In an effort to make results submission as simple as possible for show management the USDF ERSS is identical to the USEF Universal Results Template. This template is found on the USEF Web site at the following link: USEF Forms and Guidelines. Please ensure that your results meet the reporting requirements to avoid the possibility of penalties for incomplete or incorrectly formatted results.
Please email your results in the required ERSS format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Staff will confirm your email has been received. If you do not receive a confirmation email within one business day please contact USDF immediately.
Below are some helpful hints to help ensure you file meets the USDF’s requirements:
