High School Team

The goal of this team is to keep youth athletes who do not choose a draft legal path, or who are still preparing for a draft legal path engaged in the sport of triathlon through high school by practicing and racing with likeminded same age peers. Athletes will learn experience-appropriate skills and develop the necessary endurance to compete at longer sprint distance triathlons. We ask that athletes commit to the East Coast Triathlon Festival (Richmond, VA), Maryland State High School Triathlon Championship (Rock Hall Maryland, Tentative), and USA Triathlon Youth and Junior National Championship (Milwaukee, WI, Tentative) and at least three, but as many team scheduled youth events as possible.

NOTE: We can construct a modified, non-open water schedule for less experienced high school athletes.

Requirements: Year-round swim team (or proof of year-round lessons), unless competing in a modified race schedule without open water swimming, demonstrated ability to meet swim time standards, handle a bike safely in groups and commitment to transition to road bike at an experience-appropriate time, and demonstrated ability to meet the run time standards. Parent volunteer at one or more team events. Preferred minimum: Year-round swim team, open water experience, road bike use, and off season run and bike training.

Ages: June 1st after 8th grade graduation and continuing until September 1st after senior year.

Fee: $499
