Team History

sportsMultisport Explosion was started as a youth development team in 2011 because we are have two passions:  coaching youths and the sport of triathlon.  It was a natural fit for our family to help coach youths to success in triathlons as we’ve been involved in triathlons for over 20 years and our sons grew up competing in youth triathlons and now compete at an Elite level.  We had an amazing 2011 inaugural season with 42 members in our first year!  The team was very successful and has continued to grow in members and services.  The youth team has a fantastic group of supportive parents and very talented young triathletes too!  We’ve added additional coaches and have divided the youth team into multiple practices and added an Youth Elite and Junior Elite teams to continue to guide these youths on their competitive path.

The success of the youth team lead us to start a Women’s Only team in 2012.  The first season we had 22 women join us and in 2013 we’ve adjusted the program and are looking forward to continuing to grow this program.

2013-09-08 15.11.31By the continued urging of our parents we’ve decided to include everyone in the Multisport Explosion family by adding a Club team for adult Triathletes.  Now the men are no longer excluded!  This team is for anyone that is passionate about triathlons and wants to surround themselves with others that are of the same mindset.  For those that land on the podium on a regular basis are welcome to apply to our Adult Elite team.  These teams are to be a positive extension of our youth and junior levels teams.  We will be one large family of Multisport Explosion athletes!

We added on to the team in 2013: to include Personal Coaching Services.
We have the most talented, passionate, dedicated, professional and highly certified USAT Coaches that are here to assist you in meeting your multi-sport goals.  They are available to you for personalized monthly coaching plans. Check out the Coaching Services tab to see what they have to offer you.

In February of 2016 we were awarded High Performance Team status by USAT.  This is the highest honor for our youth program and is based on our superior coaching staffs credentials, our athletes successes in ITU Elite races on the National and International level.  We are now an official High Performance Team(HPT) for Youths(13-15) and Juniors(16-19).

In addition to the HPT status we also formed a regional high school team in 2016 named North Georgia Regional High School team, original I know.  The inaugural USAT High School National Championship was held in May at Clemson University in conjunction with the USAT Collegiate National Championships.  Our ladies team took home the title as National Champions and our men’s team took the runner up spot.  We are looking forward to returning with more athletes in 2017 to Tuscaloosa, AL to repeat.
