High Performance Development Teams

The goal of the USA Triathlon High Performance Development Team (HPDT) program is to increase the number and quality of developmental programs serving teenage and developmental elite athletes across the nation. USAT-designated High Performance Teams are the backbone of our development program. In addition to providing both in-person and remote coaching, High Performance Teams are a conduit for information and advice.

HPDTs play an integral role in the identification, recruitment, development, and age-appropriate competitive preparation of emerging Youth, Junior, and U23 athletes. They are also required to assist USAT in maintaining strict adherence to USADA and Safe Sport standards.
