MMTC
Travel Team

The goal of this team is to grow youth athletes’ passion for triathlon and develop advanced skills through fun filled and challenging activities. In addition, this team will teach the foundational skills necessary to advance to a Draft Legal High-Performance team. This team is best for strong swimmers who are interested in increasing their competitive level, and families who can commit to traveling. We ask that athletes commit to the East Coast Triathlon Festival (Richmond, VA) and USA Triathlon Youth and Junior National Championship (Milwaukee, WI, tentatively) and at least three, but as many team scheduled youth events as possible.

Requirements: Year-round swim team (or proof of year-round swim lessons/coaching), 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.

Fee: $499
