Region Commissions

Region commissions are responsible for aiding in the development and growth of multisport within the designated states of each region while acting as a liaison between the USA Triathlon National Office and USA Triathlon race directors, coaches, clubs, officials and athletes. Commissions work closely with USA Triathlon staff on regional programming that directly supports the 2018 USA Triathlon Strategic Plan.  

Region Representatives and Leaders

Region commissions are run and organized by volunteers, called region representatives and program leaders, who reside in that region and are supported by USA Triathlon. The commissions are made up of volunteers who are passionate members of the triathlon community. These commissions direct and administer policies and procedures of USA Triathlon at the regional and grassroots level.  

Additional Information

Strong and organized region commissions maintain an active and visible presence in several ways. Communication tools such as e-blasts, social media and websites disseminate pertinent information to keep athletes fully informed and to minimize conflicts in the scheduling of regional events. In 2018, regions will be focused on growing participation in the areas of short-course racing, women's participation and youth participation. Region commissions assist clubs and individuals in developing and conducting USA Triathlon Sanctioned Events, which are higher quality due to strict rules and regulations that must be followed to be eligible for Sanctioned status. Recruiting and educating race directors and officials is another important responsibility that is fulfilled at the regional level. An annual meeting and race director's conference presents a forum that allows for active calendar clearing, input from the race directors and the opportunity for race directors to meet with a representative of the National Office. Officials workshops also provide the opportunity to obtain re-certification, discuss rule changes and begin planning for the new season. Coaching certification clinics are also organized within different regions. Regional championships promote a competitive atmosphere within the region, provide recognition and qualify participants for USA Triathlon National Championships.
