Collegiate Triathlon Conferences

There are 10 USA Triathlon Collegiate Triathlon Conferences that are affiliated with the USA Triathlon Collegiate Club program. These 10 regional conferences lead collegiate clubs through local events and programs designed specifically for collegiate athletes. Each Collegiate Conference maintains a page containing results, schedules and additional information. You can find the conference in your area using the map below or choose a conference from the links at right.

USA Triathlon Collegiate Conferences

The sport of triathlon has seen a tremendous amount of growth over the past five years especially within the college and university community, resulting in a steady increase in the number of participants and schools at this level. This growth is expected to continue and has demanded the development of new programs supporting the growth of the college-aged triathlon community.

How to Start a Collegiate Club

Are you wondering how to start a collegiate club? The commissioners have created a document that covers the major components. If there are additional questions or roadblocks please reach out to your conference commissioner. The Cal Berkeley collegiate club has put together a reference guide to help clubs start and/or expand.

Get Others Involved

The greatest encouragement to new members is the camaraderie and team support offered by the clubs and the healthy lifestyle advantages that multisports have to offer. It’s great for your health, fitness, cross training and stress reduction. Multisport training often leads to expanding your social circles and leads to a positive sense of accomplishment.

For cross training, try some non-traditional, but very popular, distances and disciplines.

  • Triathlon: swim-bike-run
  • Aquabike: swim-bike
  • Aquathlon: run-swim-run
  • Duathlon: run-bike-run
  • Off-Road: swim - trail riding and running
  • On-Road: road riding and running (or multi-purpose pathways)
  • Winter Triathlon: run-mountain bike-ski (all on snow)
  • Indoor: pool-stationary bike-treadmill

There are various combinations of competitions, from splash-n-dash (swim-run) to formula 1 (run-bike-run-bike-run), so be creative. Mix it up between training, nutrition, healthy living and socializing to keep people interested and coming back year after year.
