ABOUT THE USAT COLLEGIATE RECRUITMENT PROGRAM
In an attempt to increase the number and quality of US athletes in search of Olympic glory USA Triathlon turned its attention to the collegiate ranks with the launch of the Collegiate Recruitment Program in 2009. Of the U.S. Olympic triathletes all but one has come from a Division I swimming or running background. Until this program was started, all of those Olympians found the sport of triathlon through their own endeavors and desires. There was no active recruiting, encouragement, or mentoring to inform, support and inspire their transition post-grad into the sport of Olympic triathlon. This program exposes collegiate swimmers and runners who have a background in the other sport to the possibility of making an Olympic Team in triathlon. Through coaching and mentoring them through the process and skills needed to become an elite triathlete, the program goal is to identify talent from the NCAA ranks, streamline and professionalize their growth in triathlon, and put athletes on the podium at the Olympics.
In 2013 The CRP program commenced a residential program at the Olympic Training Centre in Colorado Springs under the guidance of 2004 Olympian Barb Lindquist and led by USAT National Development Coach Melissa Mantak. As a progression from this model in 2013 the CRP has relocated to the greater Scottsdale area to continue this accelerated talent model for 2014 and beyond by taking advantage of superior climatic conditions as well as the lower altitude environment that appears to facilitate the skill acquisition of the identified athletes.
