Diversity and Inclusion/HBCU Focus: Community Engagement Opportunities

Volunteer at a Multisport Event in an HBCU Community

Multisport events require a team of volunteers to make the event possible. These volunteers do a wide range of tasks ranging from pre-race packet stuffing to post-race teardown. Many race directors also provide opportunities for discounted race entries or other benefits for volunteers. At the end of the day, events often cannot be successful without the help from the help that volunteers provide. To give back locally, please consider volunteering your time to a local race or USAT Championship.

Host a Tri101 Info Session at an HBCU

An info session is an opportunity to share information about the sport of triathlon with members of the community. Sessions can be hosted by any coach, race director, club, or passionate triathlete. They can take place on campus, a shop, restaurant, or any HBCU community space where it is easy to gather a group of people and share a presentation. The most important elements of the info session are welcoming new triathletes into the sport and giving them the initial information they need to get started.
