Talent ID Portal

The USAT Talent ID Portal is an online tool used by USAT High Performance to track national rankings, Junior Elite Series standings, team scores, and performance markers.  Athletes and coaches may set up a log in that allows them access to relevant information.  The Talent ID Portal replaces the Athlete Profiler, which is no longer maintained.  

US Anti-Doping Agency

The US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) oversees and coordinates the Olympic anti-doping program in the United States. Athletes who compete, are members or license holders of an NGB, or who fall under USADA's testing jurisdiction as defined in the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement testing, are subject to urine and/or blood testing both in and out of competition. 

USADA's Olympic Education department is responsible for educating athletes, including juniors and collegiate-level, about the rules of the anti-doping program. There are numerous resources on the USADA website ( that can aid in the understanding of sample collection, results management and Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE). As you move through your competitive career, it's important to be aware of the rules and how they apply to you at your current competitive state. Additionally, any medications can be checked against the WADA Prohibited List by using the Global DRO resource (

For a short webinar explaining USADA, the testing process, TUEs and the Prohibited List go to and click on the "Non-National-Level Athlete Webinar." This resource is specifically for those athletes who are not currently in USADA's Registered Testing Pool but who are competing at an elite level.

USA Triathlon High Performance coordinates a variety of age-appropriate, developmental competition formats, camps and teams for junior athletes. These include national championships, world championship team qualifiers, and regional, national and international competitions.  Juniors may also partake in two levels of development camps. Working with our Talent Identification Coordinators, USAT High Performance helps to promote talent identification events within each of its 10 regions.

Junior triathletes represent one of the fastest growing segments of USA Triathlon membership.  The "junior" age division is comprised of athletes between the ages of 16 and 19, with racing age determined on December 31st of the competition year. Athletes 15 and under race in the "youth" division. 

Junior athletes have the opportunity to compete in two distinct styles of racing. Most juniors participate in the traditional, non-drafting triathlon format. USAT High Performance has designated a number of non-drafting Junior Talent Identification Races around the country to serve as age-appropriate, entry-level triathlons. 

The highest-caliber juniors compete in draft-legal triathlons, called Junior Elite Cups. These sprint distance races mimic the ITU World Triathlon Series and Olympic format of racing by using multi-lap courses and fast flowing transition zones.  Junior Elite Cups serve as qualifiers for the USAT Junior Elite National Championship.  These athletes have above-average swim skills, the ability to ride in a peloton, and a strong run off the bike.
