Overview

In January 2014, the NCAA overwhelmingly approved triathlon as the next Emerging Sport for Women for NCAA Division I, Division II and Division III member institutions.

As an Emerging Sport for Women, triathlon embarks on the journey to become a full-fledged NCAA Championship Sport, allowing female triathletes the opportunity to be official NCAA student-athletes and participate in competitive draft-legal racing.

To assist with this monumental opportunity, USA Triathlon announced the USA Triathlon Foundation Women's Triathlon Emerging Sport Grant. The first round of funding was $2.6 million and then an additional $895,000 was approved, this totals roughly $3.5 million. This grant is distributed to selected NCAA membership institutions to develop, implement, grow and sustain varsity women’s triathlon programs at the NCAA level. Additional information on the Emerging Sport Grant can be found here.

Interested in helping to identify and recruit the next women’s varsity collegiate triathlon program? Inquiries may be directed to Tim Yount, USA Triathlon Chief Sport Development Officer, at Tim.yount@usatriathlon.org.
