Entry Form | How You Can Give Back | Best Practices

The CFC is a way to recognize, educate and challenge USA Triathlon clubs to create fundraising events to support an entity of their choosing, be it a local charity or one of the many USA Triathlon programs. It’s a way to give back to the sport and community that has given us so much.

With the help of clubs who are already giving back, USA Triathlon will become a clearinghouse of fundraising ideas. The organization will acknowledge fundraising efforts through a friendly competition, and will ultimately challenge and motivate clubs who have not given back previously.

The CFC was inspired by the Boston based tri-club, Team Psycho Triathlete, who wanted to support New England-based triathletes showing Olympic potential. This program became known as the Elite Development Program. In 2013, Team Psycho decided that instead of identifying talent in its region, the club would support the talent that USA Triathlon had already identified. Thus, it began a partnership with USA Triathlon’s Collegiate Recruitment Program and have directly funded four to six of the best collegiate recruits each year since.

Are you ready to help lead the CFC initiative? Here is how you can start:

  • If your club currently fundraises for a charity, register your event and share your ideas on the CFC webpage "Entry Form."
  • We will compile and share these ideas with all registered USA Triathlon Clubs who can then use it as a guide. We envision that building this sense of community between all clubs will aid the growth of the multisport lifestyle of giving.
  • If your club does not currently give back to the local or larger community, consider creating an event for 2015:
    • Four specific programs found under "How You Can Give Back", including opportunities to make a difference in the lives of youth, paratriathletes and Olympic hopefuls.
    • Browse through ideas from other clubs.

We're looking forward to seeing the difference USA Triathlon Clubs can make in the multisport community. Thank you for your involvement and your continued passion for fueling the multisport lifestyle. If you would like to donate, please contact clubs@usatriathlon.org for more information.
