NIKE TRIATHLON CAMP FAQ

For general questions about our Triathlon camps please see our FAQ page.

USA TRIATHLON

USA Triathlon was approved as a NCAA emerging sport in 2014 by a nearly unanimous vote of athletic directors of DI, II and III institutions.

Since that time, 40 programs have added the sport and are recruiting high school kids - both triathletes and single sport athletes who in many cases don’t have any experience in the sport.

If you are an athlete wanting to get nearly 65% aid from institutions to be part of a triathlon program, a first step could be attending a camp at one of the noted locations.

If questions on NCAA triathlon, reach out to [email protected]

An aerial view of roy p drachman stadium on the campus of the university of arizona tuesday march 2 2021 in tucson ariz the facility is the hom 2 HA9 D8 G

In 1981, the Wildcats track and field program moved from Arizona Stadium to Roy P. Drachman Stadium on the corner of 15th Street and Plumer Avenue.

The facility first took the name of Rincon Vista Stadium. However, thanks to generous donations that allowed the facility to be upgraded, the Arizona Athletics Department renamed the Wildcats' home the Roy P. Drachman Track and Field Stadium.

Considered one of the fastest and most functionally designed complexes in the country, the stadium has played host to several outstanding track and field meets. The list includes the 2003, 1995 and 1985 Pac-10 Championships, the 1987 TAC Junior and Intermediate Championships, the 1983 WCAA Championships and the annual Arizona Jim Click Invitational and Willie Williams Classic, as well as several other events throughout the year.

The stadium was completely overhauled during the fall of 2006 and is now a state-of-the-art facility with a nine-lane Tartan track and the latest design in field event competition areas. The high jump apron has been expanded and all the runways were resurfaced with a Tartan surface. The entire facility is now hard-wired with a flawless Hy-Tek electronic timing system which produces accurate electronic times.

In 1989, a computerized scoreboard was installed at the southeast corner of the track. Its features include a timing clock, message board and capabilities to generate updated team and individual results.

The seating capacity of Drachman Stadium is over 5,000. The largest crowd to attend an event at the complex was a standing-room only crowd estimated at more than 6,000 people at the 1998 Tucson Elite Classic.

Camp Questions & Answers

Do I need prior triathlon experience to come to camp?

No! This camp is open to triathletes of all levels. Just come with a passion for triathlon and an excitement to learn! We recommend athletes have some athletic background in running, swimming, or cycling.

Does the Health & Release Form need to be signed by a doctor?

Our Health & Release Form does not require a doctor’s signature. This online form is required to be filled out accurately, signed by the parent (guardian), and completed before your first day of camp.

Can I come to camp alone or do I have to be a member of a team?

We welcome individual campers and teams. If you come to camp by yourself, we place you in a dorm room with another single camper, similar in age. It's a great place to meet new friends who share your enthusiasm for the sport and to have FUN!

Are the campers supervised throughout the camp?

Yes, campers are supervised by the coaches and staff. Staff members reside in the same dorms as the campers and provide supervision during instruction, dining times, evening activities, and in the dorm.

All staff members complete criminal and sex offender background checks before working the camp.
