USA Triathlon uses the Athlete Profiler as one means to identify athletes for invitation to its development programs. The Athlete Profiler also serves as an important two-way communication tool between USAT and its younger members. Once an athlete has created a profile, they are able to update it from time-to-time with their most recent personal best times and race results. USAT often uses the Athlete Profiler to contact athletes about upcoming events and opportunities. Athletes 23 and under are encouraged to create an Athlete Profile using the link below.
If you have questions about developmental opportunities in your local area, please contact your Regional Athlete Development Coordinator listed below.

About High Performance Teams
The goal of the USA Triathlon High Performance Team program is to increase the number and quality of developmental programs serving teenage and developmental elite athletes across the nation.
The program provides grants to seed the establishment and growth of well-organized training programs, as well as offers advanced education and experiential learning opportunities to participating USAT Certified Coaches.
High Performance Teams play an integral role in the identification, recruitment, development, and age-appropriate competitive preparation of emerging youth elite, junior elite, and U23 athletes, with the goal of developing well-rounded athletes capable of success at the highest levels of competition and progression within the USAT High Performance Program. HPTs also are expected to assist USAT in maintaining its high expectations for anti-doping education and sound Safe Sport practices.
