Announcing USA Triathlon's Youth Scholarship Program
Dear Coaches, I’m proud to announce a youth scholarship program that USA Triathlon and the USA Triathlon Foundation will launch tomorrow in an effort to not only grow overall youth participation in multisport, but also to reduce barriers to entry for underserved youth. After kicking off the program with a special month-long promotion in May, we will continue to accept donations and distribute scholarships throughout the year. Your participation is important, as we need your help to identify youth athletes who may be scholarship candidates.
During the month of May, for every USA Triathlon adult annual membership newly purchased or renewed, or for every current membership not set to expire that is extended by one year, the USA Triathlon Foundation will donate one youth digital membership to a deserving child. (Youth digital memberships include all of the standard USA Triathlon Youth Membership benefits, but without the delivery of printed materials by mail.)
Our goal during this month-long “Buy One, Give One” initiative is to inspire 10,000 youth digital membership donations, which can be distributed to youth throughout the year. The scholarships awarded will be needs-based.
Beyond May, the Foundation will maintain this youth membership donation page, where anyone can donate a membership for $10.
As we roll out this initiative, I’m asking for your help in the following ways:
Help us reach deserving youth: If you coach youth triathletes who may be candidates for this scholarship, or if you personally know an aspiring young athlete, please share this application form with them: https://forms.gle/r9MEn6TG4BQHHSqA9. Applicants will hear back from USA Triathlon within two weeks. Please note that if the applicant is planning to use the youth membership for an upcoming race, he or she must apply at least 30 days in advance of the race date.
Encourage participation in May: This is an excellent opportunity to engage not only parents of youth triathletes, but also USA Triathlon adult members who may not otherwise be involved with our youth programming. Please share our press release about the “Buy One, Give One” promotion, which will be published on usatriathlon.org tomorrow morning. Encourage your network of triathletes to renew their memberships in May (if their membership does not expire in May, that’s okay — it will simply be extended for one year past the current expiration date).
-Rocky Harris, USAT CEO
