Virtual Combine

Thank you for your interest and participation in the 2020 U.S. Paratriathlon Virtual Combine.

Athletes who believe they have a paratriathlon classifiable impairment are encouraged to complete the virtual combine no later than December 31, 2020. 

Athletes will be instructed to follow specific protocols and field tests as found on the field testing document below. The purpose of this combine is for the USAT performance team to assess each athlete’s fitness, readiness, and ability to be competitive in the U.S. Paratriathlon High Performance pipeline.

To get started, an athlete needs to register by filling out the contact questionnaire in order to get their specific form and also a link to where to upload test results and files. Link to the questionnaire: https://forms.gle/RmkEAEFj3RG9tj1W8

Athletes will be recording their results on their specific excel document and uploading this along with the recommended files (per the testing protocol document) to their personally created BOX folder. Once registered, to take part in the combine, paraintern@usatriathlon.org will email you a link to your BOX folder for uploading of your materials.

Registration is now closed and results are being analyzed.

COVID-19

While participating in the ParaTriathlon Virtual Combine all athletes are strongly encouraged to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and all state and local regulations regarding COVID-19 mitigation including but not limited to appropriate social distancing and wearing masks.

Testing Instructions

The protocols outlined in the document, the order in which they appear (run → bike → swim), and the timing over six days are preferred in order to minimize fatigue and optimize performance by having what is typically the most physically demanding discipline first (run). However it is understood that athletes may not be able to follow these recommendations due to various logistical constraints, such as weather, and existing commitments such as work and school. With this in mind, when recording your times and data it is important to include the date and time each test is completed.

Record all testing, including warm up, with a Garmin, Polar, Wahoo, or other GPS enabled device to allow uploading of the data file from the device for verification of distance, time, and elevation.

If you have questions about this virtual combine, please email paraintern@usatriathlon.org.
