Triathlon Canada is in the process of launching a new Talent Identification and Recruitment Program, branded ‘Tri This.’ The Tri This program’s goal is to actively recruit athletes with a strong swimming and/or running background, who have a greater chance at international success in triathlon than in single discipline sports. Ultimately, Triathlon Canada is looking to identify motivated, mature athletes who have been competitive in swim or run (or both) and who want to focus all of their sporting energies into becoming a World Class triathlete within an 18-24 month time frame.
Any Canadian athlete can apply for acceptance into the Tri This program. Athlete’s applications will be judged on the potential for future success. If accepted into the program, the athlete will receive compensation over a 12-month period, which can start at any time throughout the year. The level of compensation of the successful candidate will be proportionate to their overall assessment during the recruiting phase. Attached below are a few documents that outline the performance levels in the swim and run that Triathlon Canada is looking for, and how much compensation each category of athlete would receive if accepted into the program.
