Short Course Community Engagement Opportunities

 

 

Volunteer at a Local Event

Short Course events require a team of volunteers in order to make the race successful. These volunteers help with a wide variety of tasks ranging from packet stuffing, to event teardown and everything in between. In exchange for the help many race directors also provide opportunities for discounted race entries or other benefits for volunteers. At the end of the day, events cannot be successful without the help that volunteers provide. To give back and support your local multisport community consider volunteering at a local race or USA Triathlon Championship. To get involved and find an event look here.

 

Host a Tri101 Info Session

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 at any local store, restaurant, gym, or anywhere it is easy to gather a group of people and share a presentation. The most important elements are welcoming new triathletes into the sport and giving them the initial information they need to get started. More information about hosting an info session can be found here: https://www.mytimetotri.com/partnerresources

 

Bring a Friend Program

Do you have a friend or family member who has shown interest in your racing, or said that they wanted to race one day? The Bring a Friend program will give you the framework needed to introduce your friend or family member to the sport and support them while training.

 

Host an INDOOR Multisport Event

INDOOR Multisport events are great for new athletes looking to try out the sport in a safe and nonthreatening environment, as well as seasoned athletes that are not able to complete outdoors. They consist of events entirely located within a gym using a pool, stationary bike, and either a treadmill or track. These events can be time or distance based, competitive or participatory. INDOOR events can be hosted by a gym events director, race director, coach, club, or athlete.
