The team has been together since November 2011 and is currently the only triathlon team registered with the ATA (Alberta Triathlon Association) in Zone 1. We are an all-inclusive team, which means no ability will be left behind. We have a Youth Development team, and an Adult Community team. In Lethbridge, we have strong west winds; they are powerful, unstoppable and constant. Each member will use these as a guiding force in their training.
Our Youth Members
We are encouraging youth between the ages of 6-15 years of age to join and try triathlon to stay healthy in a fun, encouraging sport. This is a great sport where kids can play games while staying active and participate in friendly competition with others or simply compete against themselves. We allow youth athletes over the age of 13 to train with our adult group. Any youth members under 13 will be given a training plan and have separate training sessions.
Our Adult Members
Ever thought of being part of a team but can't shoot a basketball, hit a baseball, can't skate or are simply tired of chasing vulcanized rubber around a frozen pond? Come on out and give it a tri! We accept all levels of swimmers, bikers, and runners. We have an ATA community coach and plenty of experience including 1st place finishers in Sprint/Olympic/Half Iron distance triathlons. We have members who are in training for their 1st triathlon and members who train for Ironman distance races. Let our knowledge help you reach your health/fitness and racing goals.
Our Generous Sponsors
We currently have our local bike shop and run shops, Bert & Macs and Runners Soul respectively. We also have great local massage and physiotherapy in Biomechanic Massage and Fit Physiotherapy. Along with those we get a great discount on swimming at Fritz Sick provided by Recreation Excellence and a great nutrition and goal oriented gym at Impact Nutrition. If you are interested in water proof music while you swim, X-1 has offered us a discount on gear.
We also receive a yearly monetary donation from Western Trade Winds Transport to assist in purchasing team gear and improving training with the purchase of team equipment.
