ABOUT US

USAT CERTIFIED TRIATHALON CLUB

We are Charleston’s first and oldest youth and junior triathlon club, founded in 2016 by Shana Fitch. A former Division I Track & Field athlete at Virginia Tech, Coach Fitch was the first in the State of South Carolina to receive her USAT Youth & Junior Elite Coaching certification, after racing triathlons for nearly a decade. Coach Fitch has amassed a talented team of USAT Certified Coaches that share her purpose-driven mission to bring youth triathlon to South Carolina in an unordinary way. We focus on creating a pure triathlon environment, applauding progress over perfection, in an athlete-first focused team culture.

Respecting the multisport aspects of triathlon, Palmetto TRIbe’s programs ensure athletes practice all 3 segments every week, in a high-energy, safe, team environment that has its own unique #TRIbeVibe culture. Our mission is to develop the athlete inside every child, at their progression, through intentional and thoughtful application of triathlon specific swim, bike and run practices. We appreciate and acknowledge that every athlete is unique and that the multisport experience of triathlon allows multiple segments for athletes to excel and be challenged in individual ways.

Our intentional performance progression for athletes Ages 7-19yo is built upon a commitment to the USA Athlete Developmental Model, with a methodical progression to support the athlete lifecycle. Our talented team of USAT Certified Coaches provide triathlon specific coaching to drive skill development and speed performance in swimming, biking and running. We model USAT best practices in triathlon technical skills, transitions, safety protocols, mental skills, and race-day preparation & strategy.

Palmetto TRIbe competes in local and regional races, in addition to the USAT Youth & Junior National Championship race held annually. We are South Carolina proud and we know our program delivers so much more than triathlon to the athletes and families we touch. We establish the foundation and create a progression for athletes to experience a lifelong love of sport. We look forward to seeing you at a multisport event soon… let’s #swimbikerunTRIbe together!
