2020 Collegiate Club & High School National Championships Postponed

USA Triathlon on Friday, March 13 announced that it has been forced to postpone the USA Triathlon Collegiate Club and High School National Championships, which was scheduled for April 3-4 in Tempe, Arizona, due to the rapidly evolving situation surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19). 

The postponement was made after the City of Tempe issued a decision on Thursday, March 12 to ban all events in order to mitigate risk and protect the city’s most vulnerable populations. 

The decision also follows developments in the collegiate landscape throughout the week, including the shift to online learning by many colleges and universities, student-athlete travel restrictions and large-scale event cancellations at the NCAA level. 

USA Triathlon is exploring the potential option of finding an alternate date later this year to host Collegiate Club & High School Nationals in a safe and fair way for all athletes. The organization will communicate updates to the USA Triathlon Collegiate Club Committee, and all collegiate club and high school team leaders as appropriate. 

For continued updates from USA Triathlon regarding COVID-19, visit usatriathlon.org/coronavirusupdates. USA Triathlon continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19, while following the guidance of local authorities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), when making decisions regarding the status of USA Triathlon events and programs. 

In addition, USA Triathlon remains in regular contact with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the national and global sports landscape. Any further potential changes to USA Triathlon’s National Championships event calendar will be communicated immediately.
