Cool Breeze Multi Sport Racing Team

The Cool Breeze Racing team is open to multi sport athletes with a minimum of two years training or racing experience.  Applicants are chosen based on their character, sportsmanship and commitment to high level training.  Although we are social, the Cool Breeze Race Team is at core, a training team comprised of dedicated amateur athletes with definite performance goals.  Although we do not require team members to compete at any set distance, we do ask them to race a minimum of 5 times per year and we hope to help them achieve podium spots.  


Team Philosophy:  Although we recognize that triathlon is an individual sport, we know that we are stronger and faster when we train together.  To that end, we encourage all race team members to join a group training session at least once a week, and, when possible to sign up for races together so we are on similar training plans.
