Youth/Junior Elite Series Description
Overview - The USAT Junior Elite and Youth Elite Series is the premiere triathlon race series for athletes 13 to 19 year olds in the United States. Consisting of four national-caliber competitions each spring and summer, the series prepares athletes for draft-legal competition and qualification to US teams competing at international championships. Each event has two competition categories - a Junior Elite Cup (16-19yrs) and a Youth Elite Cup (13-15yrs) - in which athletes are grouped by age and gender. Courses are designed to mimic Olympic style racing, with multiple laps and high speed transitions, making races exciting to watch for families, friends, and teammates. The U25 Elite Development Race will follow the same format but for athletes 20-25 years - older athletes must apply to race by emailing email@example.com.
Qualification for the Junior National Championship - The top 20 finishers at the USAT Richmond Youth Elite and Junior Elite Cup will earn the opportunity to compete at the USAT Youth Elite and Junior Elite National Championships in West Chester, Ohio, on August 3-4, 2013. Spots will roll down past athletes who have already qualified and athletes representing other national federations. Athletes may participate in any or all three qualifiers, regardless of residence. For more information about qualification, visit http://www.usatriathlon.org/elite-international/junior-elite.aspx.
Qualification for the U25 EDR Elite License - The first three (3) finishers in the U25 Elite Development Race will become eligible for a USAT Elite Triathlete License. These athletes must finish within five percent (5%) of the winner's overall time. If there are fewer than 30 starters, only two (2) athletes will earn eligibility. If there are fewer than 20 starters, only one (1) athlete will earn eligibility. If Elite license holders or non-U.S. athletes are permitted to start in the race, elite eligibility spots will roll down to the next amateur provided he or she is within five percent (5%) of the first amateur's overall time. Elite and non-U.S. starters will not count toward the total number of starters used to determine the number of Elite licenses awarded.
