The USA Triathlon coaching education pathway starts with an online learning course – Foundations of USA Triathlon Coaching. This course can be for those who already coach and for those who have not yet started their coaching journey. The course was developed to bridge the gap between the level of coaches we see participating in our Level I certification clinics. The course also strives to create some common terminologies and philosophies among coaches. We believe that having a course that teaches the foundational skills of coaching will create a better platform for our coaches to continue their coaching careers.

Requirements to Enroll
