Youth Coaches

In 2011, USA Triathlon launched the Youth & Junior Coaching Certification program designed to educate coaches how to train youth athletes safely and effectively. Coaching is a dynamic endeavor and for those coaching youth and juniors, the challenge is even greater. Youth coaches must not only safely train youth triathletes, but do so in a healthy, positive environment that encourages sport for a lifetime. USA Triathlon currently has over 200 certified youth coaches and recently launched a new certification class specifically geared towards athletes ages 7-15.

In this section, coaches can find additional resources on coaching youth including our SafeSport initiative. Interested in becoming certified and learning from top coaches? Check out our Become a Coach section for more information on our certification process and clinics near you.
