dare2tri 2018 Development Teams

The Dare2tri Development Team is comprised of athletes who are identified as talented and emerging paratriathletes. By providing high-level coaching, mentoring, and support, Dare2tri can develop these athletes’ skills and help them reach their personal goals.

In 2017, Dare2tri added the Junior Development Team to welcome top-emerging youth athletes into the sport of Paratriathlon.

Each year Dare2tri hosts an annual Elite Team Camp, the Official Technical Training Camp of USA Paratriathlon, for all Elite and Development Team members. The camp provides top-instructional and training opportunities.
