TUCSON, AZ (October 31, 2014) – TriSports.com has opened the application period for its 2015 teams. TriSports.com realizes that the business owes a lot to the athlete, and also that sometimes athletes need a little extra help in pursuing their dreams and careers as triathletes. TriSports.com developed the TriSports Elite and Champions sponsorship programs to recognize outstanding athletes, and to reward those who are highly active in the triathlon community. TriSports athletes are not only excellent competitors, but they are also involved in many facets of the sport outside of their own racing.
The TriSports Elite Team is made up of 30 individuals whose primary focus in racing is to be on the podium. These athletes train hard and race harder. The TriSports Champions Team athletes are an army of 200 ambassadors for the TriSports brand, some on the podium, some bringing up the rear, all involved in the sport and having fun doing what they love. Benefits and requirements for each team can be found on the TriSports Sponsorship website at http://sponsorship.trisports.com/. Applications must be received by November 30, 2014 to be considered, and applicants will be notified on or before January 15, 2015.
