Elite draft-legal triathlon on any team requires a commitment of both time and finances. Below are the commitments required of TAF athletes.

Time Commitment

  • The TAF season runs from March to early August.

  • In season, athletes are expected to attend online practices on Monday and Thursday evenings.

  • In season, athletes are expected to attend in person practices once per weekend.

    • Athletes who live far away can substitute in person practices fo​r online practices but should make as many in person practices as possible.

  • Athletes on the Elite Team are expected to attend as many of the Elite Cup Races as is feasible; these races are how athletes qualify for Nationals and are the culmination of the practices.​
