  • Comfort swimming 4 lengths of the pool . It doesn’t have to be pretty; we can work on that! However, we are not a learn-to-swim program.
  • Comfort riding your bike on open roads, and able to maintain a speed of 12mph over a 30-minute ride. You don’t have to possess the skill of Major Taylor, but we want to ensure everyone’s safety on training rides and during clinics.

Does Team RYPE provide coaching?

No. Team RYPE is a triathlon club that provides members with easy to follow training plans that have been developed by certified coaches.

We highly encourage you to work with a coach if you have specific needs requiring a training plan designed for you. Then Team RYPE can provide a fun, competitive and safe environment for you to train in! 

What if I already have a triathlon coach, is there value in joining Team RYPE?

Absolutely there is! We think its great that you have specific goals that you are trying to reach! But training alone can be a drag….and unsafe. Team RYPE provides a great community of like-minded ladies who you can help you be accountable.
