Why should I support future USA multisport athletes?
Members have always played a crucial role in helping America’s youth, junior and top-level athletes make it to the playing field. Unlike pro and college sports that have a large spectator and alumni backing, USA Triathlon relies on donations from the private community in order to meet various program goals. These athletes aspire to a dream, whether it be attending a key event, camp, clinic or the Olympic Games. The location and size of the activity doesn’t really matter. What does matter is USAT removing the impediments that might stand in the way of the athlete’s ability to participate and/or succeed.
In an attempt to nurture the U.S. athletes, we ask that you make a simple donation that will benefit our belief that every kid should have a chance to participate, every elite athlete an opportunity to reach their dreams without any obstacles or hurdles. As a donor, you will feel an extra sense of pride knowing that you played a role in sending athletes to the Games or a young kid to a camp or clinic. For many of our young stars, this decision might become a possible life affecting step on the right path via a sport that we all love. For other athletes it might be funding that will allow them to compete in the Olympic Trials or other events where points can be accrued.
Where does my contribution go?
Gifts to USAT are used to help athletes achieve competitive excellence and meet the basic needs of our athletes such as transportation, housing, meals, lodging, coaching, sports medicine, and equipment purchases. Your support will make many athlete’s journeys a reality.

Cuban-born elite triathlete Manny Huerta realized his Olympic dream in 2012 when he crossed the finish line at the ITU World Triathlon San Diego to lock up a spot on the U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team. Manny came to the U.S. as a teenager with little in the way of resources, but with hard work and the support of his mother, he earned a college scholarship, became an American citizen and gravitated toward the life-changing sport of triathlon. With USA Triathlon’s support, Manny was able to focus on training and racing as he developed into one of the world’s best. Alongside USA Triathlon, you can support the dream of the next wave of Olympic hopefuls by providing funding for equipment, training camps, international travel and more.
