In the pursuit of success at the highest level of triathlon, we provide a daily Performance environment (DpE) for elite athletes. Athletes live and train together the majority of the year at different training camp locations including as New hampshire, florida, and virginia. our athletes compete internationally in both draft legal and long course events. We also accept development athletes through usa triathlon's collegiate recruitment program. (CRP)
Our squad trains at several locations throughout the year. Our primary location is bedford, New Hampshire. During the winter we travel to a warm weather location. This winter we will be training in both Clermont, Florida and Richmond, Virginia. All our locations offer athletes a wealth of state of the art training facilities and training locations.
Training with our group means near year round training, and daily training sessions with the team. We average between 1-2 coached sessions a day as a group, and the remainder of your sessions are either done solo or with a other members of the team. During the race season the team often travels together to races with the coach, and other times with other teammates. Our athletes live together in several different apartments, but all within close proximity to one another.

I want to see who else is joining the team before I commit, is that okay?
No. Ask yourself why you are joining the squad. Is it for the accomplishments of other athletes? Our squad is run with equal attention given to every athlete. You will not play second fiddle here. All of our athletes will have high aspirations like yourself, the culture and environment will drive your performance.

The number one complaint I hear from athletes is that their coach did not pay attention to them. In my short life as an athlete I had the same experience. You can talk to any of our athletes and they will answer this for you.

Full commitment. We are looking for athletes that are able to entirely commit themselves to triathlon with a long term focus.
