Coaching a Team

Who coaches USAT?

Teachers, principals, parents and other volunteers all serve as USAT coaches. Programs are almost exclusively run through school districts, although certain other groups, such as after-school programs, magnet programs, and parent groups, may sponsor teams.

All Meets are hosted by experienced USAT coaches, who use the official Program Manual rules and forms. New coaches must still be prepared to participate in facilitation of Meets and adhere to the General Rules and responsibilities of Coaches.

USAT provides support for coaches by supplying sample materials, helpful tips through our blog and weekly brainstorming prompts through the US Academic Triathlon Facebook page.
