Level 3: High Performance Team
(Athletes 13 – 19 years old)
The Team Barracuda Level 3 High Performance Team is for athletes wanting to commit to triathlon as their sport of choice. Youth Elite athletes (13-15) and Junior Elite athletes (16-19) will compete on a national level in draft legal Olympic style racing formats.
L3 High Performance athletes will engage in a more structured training environment, learn skills to help them compete in draft-legal races, understand the rules of this style of racing, and be more accountable for learning what is necessary to perform their best. Proper nutrition strategies, strength training protocols, equipment choices and bike maintenance are all essential parts of the program.
Athletes are encouraged to pursue qualification for USAT National level events such as Youth & Junior Nationals, Youth & Junior Elite Nationals, Sprint, and Age Group Nationals, by competing in USAT Youth & Junior Elite Cup Series races and Youth F1 Series races whenever possible.
*Practices will take place 3 times per week May through September. Participation in USAT Regional Talent ID Series races and other local non-draft legal races during the season is also encouraged.
