Generally you start by competing at your Association meet, but I think in a few places you might even need to qualify to be able to compete at that meet. From your Association meet, you have to place high enough to advance to Regionals, and at Regionals you have to place high enough to advance to Nationals.

I am still confused on the usatf membership, does it include you in events that the association competes at or is it something else like unsurance benefits and more discussion etc.?
You Association meet has not happened yet, it is almost certainly in June. I don't know why they didn't have the date posted, but let me know which Association you're in and I can probably figure it out.
USATF membership does not include entry fees to events. You can see the list of member benefits at usatf.org/membership

So it's the Association you live in, right?
You generally have to do your own research on meets, they don't email it to you. Here is the schedule for your Association. You guys have lots of meets: http://www.scausatf.org/youth/schedule.htm
Your Association meet is June 8-10 at Cerritos. I couldn't find the entry information, they probably just don't have it posted, but you can contact Smotgnd52@earthlink.net with questions.
