DIA US Triathlon Team

What We Are

Governed under the Diversity in Aquatics Tri-Council, the US Tri Team is a group which promotes triathlons and the multi-sport lifestyle, with an emphasis on attracting newbies, supporting learning to swim and increasing water safety education to youth, adults and families. We have adopted a proactive and focused approach to increasing diversity and growing the base, starting in the Florida Region.  The vision of this approach is to radically change and increase exposure, access, and participation, in the collection of underserved and underrepresented communities of color, in South East Florida.  This section of the region will serve as an experiential learning test, that can be refined and then rolled out to the rest of the region and nation.

Participants will need to be current US Masters Swimming or USA Triathlon members, or complete the 30 Day Free Trial USMS Membership (see below).
