The partnership allows USAT members to have easy and affordable access to educational material so they can expand their knowledge and expertise in their chosen sport.

History

The history of USA Triathlon dates back to 1982 when the U.S. Triathlon Association and the American Triathlon Association merged under one unified national governing body called the U.S. Triathlon Association, with 1,500 members. The years since have seen the sport grow exponentially in the United States. Now known as USA Triathlon, membership stands at more than 115,000.
