Team USA

    The Team USA experience is more than just a chance to represent the red, white and blue. It's a lifelong community.
    Tim Yount

    Team USA is the group of age-group athletes that qualify for the right to represent the United States and compete in the World Triathlon World Championships, which attracts the best athletes representing over 50 countries each year. While exact disciplines and races vary from year to year, athletes can generally compete in World Championships for the following:

      • Triathlon (Sprint, Olympic-Distance, Long Course)
      • Duathlon (Sprint, Standard, Long Distance)
      • Aquathlon (Standard)
      • Aquabike (Standard, Long Course)
      • Cross (Triathlon and Duathlon; distances vary by location)
      • Winter (Run, bike ski; distances vary by location)

    Athletes are separated into five-year age groups (18-19, 20-24, etc., up to 90+).


    There are five ways to qualify for Team USA. Qualifiers must also meet the following eligibility requirements: All Team USA athletes are required to be Citizens or Nationals of the United States. If an athlete has the nationality of two or more countries, the Athlete can choose the National Federation they want to represent. The athlete must choose their sporting nationality before their first participation in a World Triathlon Event. Athletes with previous participation in World Triathlon events who want to change their sporting nationality can go through the change of nationality process outlined in the World Triathlon Constitution [section 55.2(b)].
