Generally, there are 2 youth races per Session.  The youth race schedule is emailed to parents at the beginning of the session. Triathletes have the option to compete in any of the scheduled races for each Session and enter other races that they choose or as their coach recommends.

Session Cost:

$395.00 per athlete (30 training’s, 5.0 hours weekly for 10 weeks). Cost doesn’t include swim with Clovis Swim Club, race entry fees and travel. For flexible training you can purchase a Triathlon Training Card for $200.00. This gives you 10 training’s. The triathlon training card may be used for Session I and II of the current calendar year only. Daily training is available for $30.00 per training.

Training and Equipment:


Swim training is with Clovis Swim Club  so we have more time to focus on the bike and run training.  Swimmers may be assessed and assigned to their appropriate swim group. This gives athletes the opportunity to swim several days per week. Information and registration can be found on the Clovis Swim Club website.  We will schedule an occasional open water swim trainings at Lake Millerton (in shallow water) so that the athletes are familiar with lake swimming.


You should have a bike in good operating condition and an approved bike helmet. Appropriate biking apparel will be discussed at practice.


Basic running apparel and a good pair of running shoes.

Training Levels:

Youth: Ages 6-12 and Junior 13-19

In this group of entry level athletes, the inherent emphasis is on safety, fun, and skill development. Athletes develop the correct skills for swimming, biking, and running through sport specific, skill development training. Athletes at all levels of development should enjoy their training and racing experience. This is accomplished through a variety of skills based training’s, positive experiences, and positive social interaction with fellow triathletes and coaches.

Youth Elite HPT: Ages 13-15

This goal oriented group of triathletes usually has several years of training and racing experience. While still in a developmental stage, these triathletes are mastering swim, bike, and run techniques, building base, and speed to advance in future years. These athletes have usually chosen the sport of triathlon as a primary sport and want to further develop their skills, knowledge, training, and performance with a goal to perform at the Junior Elite level. These triathletes are generally on an Individual Training Plans (ITP).

Junior Elite HPT: Ages 16-19

This higher and usually more experienced level of goal oriented triathletes has usually developed from the Youth Elite and has been training and racing for a number of years. They are furthering their mastery of swim, bike, and run techniques and are training specifically for future opportunities within the highly competitive ranks of national and international competition. Regional and national development opportunities are available to help hone the skills of this more elite competitor. These triathletes are on Individual Training Plans (ITP).

High Performance Team (HPT) Program

A HPT is organized around the purpose of identifying, recruiting, and developing elite level talent. These individuals come from the ranks of the Junior Elite and are provided with opportunity to continue training and competing with their home team. In this manner, younger triathletes are exposed to their training commitment and performance standards on a regular basis. These individual team members work very closely with their coach and his sports performance staff to move strategically through the USA Triathlon developmental pipeline.
