There are things that are applicable across everything because in the end you’re still talking about high performance, you’re still talking about learning and communicating with people.
2008 U.S. Olympian Jarrod Shoemaker

“When we come and hear from all these experts and network with all of our peers, I think it opens our minds and horizons to what we do and how we do things and really allows us to think outside the box.”

— Wes Johnson, Head NCAA Women’s Collegiate Triathlon Coach at the University of Arizona

“I believe everyone who is involved in the multisport world should come because it’s (a chance to learn new) information. You get to engage with people, you get to connect with new people, you get to ask questions that you might not get to ask your coach. It’s good to come and hear from other peer advocates and be with those who are like-minded.”

— Michanda Myles, Host of Tri Beginner’s Luck Podcast

“It’s kind of like a reunion. We get together with friends we haven’t seen in a while, and in person. That’s the community side of it. From a standpoint of education, it’s good because there’s always things to learn, there’s things you get to share, so between things that you receive and what you give, you grow from that.”

— Scott Bennefield, USA Triathlon Certified Coach

Why not come, you know you’re just surrounded by this whole community that wants to see you succeed at an event.
Angie Click, USA Triathlon Race Director

“As a coach, I’m not a race director and I don’t wear that hat at all, but talking to race directors and getting an understanding of what their challenges are is so interesting. The presentations are great, and for me just the networking was great.”

— Sara Dasso, USA Triathlon Certified Coach

“There are things that are applicable across everything because in the end you’re still talking about high performance, you’re still talking about learning and communicating with people. For me it’s coming here, it’s meeting new people, it’s listening to different ideas, it’s understanding you know why people are doing things. I still love the sport of triathlon, so I enjoy watching and learning.”

— 2008 U.S. Olympian Jarrod Shoemaker

“The amount of learning opportunities, the amount of networking opportunities, honestly it’s just a fun place to be with a lot of people who basically think alike and it’s a great place to bounce ideas off of everyone.”

— Ryan Bolton, 2000 U.S. Olympian and current USA Triathlon Director of High Performance
