Elite Team


The Dare2tri Elite Team is comprised of athletes who are dedicated to reaching their full competitive potential on national and international stages.


Dare2tri Elite Team members compete alongside the world’s top paratriathletes at national and international racing events, including the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championship Series. For many Elite Team Members, the ultimate goal is to represent the United States in competition at the Paralympic games.

Since 2013, Dare2tri has been supporting the members of the Elite Team as they pursue and achieve athletic excellence. Elite Team members not only receive individualized coaching, they receive funding to offset costs needed to train and compete at the highest level.
