usa triathlon high performance Team
Team Playtri's Elite F1 and National Teams have been named a High Performance Team Program by USA Triathlon, and have continued to meet the increasing standard for that designation over the years, providing proof of the value of proper foundational training for young athletes.
"The goal of the USA Triathlon High Performance Team (HPT) program is to increase the number and quality of developmental programs serving youth, teenage and emerging elite athletes across the nation. The program provides financial grants to seed the establishment and growth of well-organized Daily Training Environments (DTEs), as well as offers advanced education and experiential learning opportunities to participating USAT Certified Coaches. HPTs play an integral role in the identification, recruitment, development, and age-appropriate competitive preparation of emerging youth elite, junior elite and senior elite athletes, with the goal of developing well-rounded athletes capable of success at the highest levels of draft-legal competition and progression within the USAT High Performance Pathway." -USA Triathlon
THE AMERICAN DEVELOPMENT MODEL
Team Playtri strives to adhere to the 10 Principles of the American Development Model as presented by the US Olympic Committee, and emphasizes age-appropriate training and competition, with an emphasis on good sportsmanship and positive attitude. Our mission is "Building Life-Long Athletes with World-Class Potential," meaning that we will provide young athletes with the skills and mentality needed to enjoy a lifetime of sport, along with the foundational skills necessary for high performance at an appropriate age for those who choose to pursue that goal.
Because of this, over 80% of our athletes participate in skills-based, recreational team programs that emphasize fun, form and fitness over competition.
